I have a Milwaukee Multitool, 12 V battery model. It made sense to me as I have a bunch of other Milwaukee 12 tools, favorite of which is the little impact driver. So, just one charger and a bagfull of batteries now that I have the tool collection.

I agree that for a major project a corded one or a top line battery model could be the answer, but I have given mine a solid workout on lots of smaller jobs and find it great.

I can't speak for OZ but if you want street cred in the carpentry world, boating or otherwise, pull some of these out at your job site.

Agreed. I received one of their FXS cordless drills as a birthday present. Beautifully made, slim and well balanced with excellent batteries and charger. Strangely the carry-case is poorly made flimsy plastic.

If all else fails, read the instructions
If it ain't broke, don't fix it
