My previous post got a bit intruded upon and I decided to streamline it a bit.
Focusing strictly on a good cordless drill for now.
First of all, what's the best brand?
I'm looking at something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tab%3DWatching
Looks good, new lithium ion model from Dewalt, but a reviewer said you don't know when the battery dies and you can't let it run all the way out or something?
I'm willing to spend close to $250 to get a really awesome, top quality drill that I use daily for heavy duty work as well as lighter duty stuff like drywall, framing, etc....
Please let me know your opinions.
THIS one gets pretty stellar reviews: http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-EY64...m_cr_pr_sims_i
also checking out something like this combo:
but i don't really need the circular saw, so might be a bit much.
PS - i think i like the panasonic drill very much, given the reviews. however, i'm wondering if down the road i want to get a cordless sawzall or something, if it would hard to find something made by panasonic, or maybe a pain in the butt to have different types of batters and brands.
is this an issue?
really the only other thing i think i will really NEED, is a miter saw, and maybe a sawzall.
