Sawzall - Milwuakee & a Porter Cable with a snapped shaft that needs repair
Skill Saws - Makita & DeWalt
Jig Saws - Bosch & DeWalt
Biscuit Joiner - Porter Cable
Routers - Plunge = Bosch, Stationary table mounted = Port Cable
Cordless Tools - Milwaukee, Ryobi and a dead DeWalt that needs repair
Multi-tools - Fein, Harbor Freight, Milwaukee & Dremel
Corded Drills - Milwaukee, Hitachi, Black& Decker
Angle Grinder - DeWalt & Makita
Rotary Buffer - Makita
Small Compressor - Makita
Miter Saw - DeWalt & Delta
I have heard that about the new bats, but still the issue is keeping a charger and when do you plug it in and how often, etc? Where do you keep it? They're expensive. Plus, they dont float. Dont get me wrong, we have a LOT of cordless drills and tools (my dad owned a custom cabinetry shop)... I just dont think they are the right thing for a boat. Exception is probably for going up the mast (drill). Pretty much everything I do is 110. But hey, maybe when I drop one of these overboard I will change my mind??? Christmas present maybe.
