I love the 12v stuff. I found as a service guy, I rarely used the bigger 18v drills. Kept a little 12v drill in my tool bag, even put receptacles on with it!

Now a days all I use is the heated jacket

My screwdriver went bad on me. I don't know if water damaged it or not and returned it. I'm getting a new one for sure because it's better then the impact.
In fact my impact got jealous of my newly prized drill and I believed sabotaged her.
Where's your light? How do you see without a light.

I guess I should get a light sometime. Now I just put a small taped up maglight in my mouth.

On a side, I saw a plumber last week with the new Hercules tools from Harbor Freight. They are a Milwaukee clone. We laughed at him and called him all sorts of funny insults. But in a side-by-side challenge, they did just as good as the Milwaukee.... now how long they will hold up is for time to tell.
Word is HF is taking these tools seriously. Plus since China owns Milwaukee it wouldn't surprise me if they are made of a lot of the same parts.

In other news not impressed with Dewalt at all. 2 brushless impacts and a drill quit working and another drill is on its way out.

These are what I like to keep all the time. Amazing what the oscillating wlsaw will cut. Been in places a reciprocating saw would not fit with a metal blade.

14.4v. Really powerful. I drove a 1/4"x3" lag into a piece of dry wood. But it can be turned way down for doing receptacles and other small tasks.

It fits all 1/4" drill bits and screw bits. Very useful.

Looks like a nice size and great if it's that powerful.

I would not rely on it to drive lags all day long but it's nice that I can count on it to do a variety if things. I like that it's really light. A little pricy. But the snap-on dealer had it and I could not pass it up.

Have you ever tried the M12 fuel impact?

What are your favorites in the M12 line?

This Yankee screwdriver is a bust.

That is the first tool that got me criticized when I was on my first Union job.

It was easier on the wrists for me.
