Hi Don;very good to hear from you and that your mother and family are doing well. When you have a bit if time to reply, I have a "tools" question". I want to buy some battery pack tools. Like maybe a bttery powered drill, skillsaw, sawzall, things like that. You wrote about these once, but I can't find the post.
1) Is there a certain 'brand' that is the best for the money with these type tools? Sears and home depot have multi brands of multi strngths and battery types. I imagines other retailers do, also.
2) I want them all to run off the same battery packs, if possible. What is the best strength and type of battery? Also, Does the type/brand of recharger matter / and does the type/brand of batteries?
3) Other than the ones I mentioned, what are the other very good tools to have as battery powered; and are there other factors I should consider with battery powered power tools.
Thank you for your time..............................
