Answer by Karen L
No one should be without a cordless screw gun, in my opinion. Buy one with good battery capacity and which is comfortable in your hand. An extra battery can come in very useful though they are expensive. A really cheap screw gun will only disappoint. A corded drill is useful if you really need a lot of power, like for drilling into brick or metal a lot, they aren’t expensive and will last many years for most people. If you’re cutting a lot of lumber a skil saw or chop saw is good. A compound mitre chop saw is the most useful and very worthwhile because it makes it very easy to cut angles accurately, very useful when building walls. That and the drill or screw gun are really all you need for power tools to build a shed. Jigsaws come in very handy too. Those three–drill/cordless screw gun, chop saw/skil saw, jigsaw, can do 90% of what a normal homeowner does. Don’t buy a nail gun unless you go for the kind that works with a compressor and is very expensive. Few homeowners bother with them. Table saws are useful and nice to have but most of us don’t really need them. Reciprocating saws are handy sometimes for rough cutting.

    Precision cutting with little effort makes this a must have tool, June 3, 2011

    This review is from: Bosch MX25EC-21 2.5-Amp Multi-X Oscillating Tool Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I am a residential electrician and purchased the multi-tool for cutting into cabinets and lathe and plaster walls for my outlet boxes. What I used to use was drill bits and a sawzall and I became quite adept at it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the perfect cut 100% of the time, and I would either damage the finish of a wall or add a couple “love taps” to the cabinet courtesy of a bent sawzall blade.

    Not any more!!! The multi-tool is great for making perfect, precision cuts in every material medium I come across, from hard oak cabinets to 90 year old pine lathe in homes.

    Its incredibly easy to use from the first cut, and I never felt out of control or that the tool would jump. I had to get used to the vibrating and noise but thats about it.

    I chose the Bosch over the Craftsman or Rigid because of the quality name that the brand carries throughout its impressive power tool line. This is my first Bosch power tool. I probably would have gone with Makita if they produced a multi-tool, as all my other power tools are Makita. The Fein tool is obviously a great tool and the originator of this kind of power tool, but its still ridiculously over priced and the blades are too. I felt that Bosch probably did their homework and for them to undercut Fein by half price just points to Fein being over priced, not Bosch being cheap.

    I’ve used a Fein before and I can say there is no difference in the quality of the tool.

    Overall, I am impressed and very happy with my purchase. Only time will tell how well it holds up, but I have no doubts that it will.

    I bought the cordless version of the tool when it first came out. Always eyed the FEIN but just couldn’t justify spending $300 + on a tool I would probably only use once in a while. After using the 12v cordless Bosch I quickly realized two things. First, this is one of the handiest tools to have in your truck. Second, the cordless 12v version from Bosch was underpowered for anything a professional would ask of it. If work hadn’t been so scarce over the last year or two I would have thrown the cordless away and bought the FIEN without blinking an eye. Well, work is getting a little better and Bosch finally beefed up the tool by attaching a cord and matching the power of the FIEN tool. Now, I can’t see any reason to spend the extra money on the FEIN as Bosch has done a great job with this tool.

    If you can afford the extra $30, get the model with the few extra blades and plastic case. The little bag that came with mine is junk and you have to remove the blade to properly fit the tool in. Eitherway, the tool itself does such a good job and anyone that does finish carpentry needs this in their tool bag.

    I bought one of these a couple of months back because of the video, must have watched it a hundred times while buying material at the contractor counter at my local Building Supply.( the slow sell) I’ve been doing a lot of deck building recently and thought I would put this thing through it’s paces. It was a little awkward at first but once you get used to how a multi-tool operates, it’s pretty slick. I’ve always used a handsaw to finish my cuts on stair jacks. Not any more. The Bosch does a cleaner job. I also do plunge cuts in my corner posts for deck railing. It’s always been tedious using a short jigsaw blade to get into the inside corner where I literally cut out a cube shape in the corner of the post. I would always have to clean it up with a chisel. Again the Bosch makes short clean work of it. I needed to get an accurate floor level height to build a deck against an exterior wall prior to installing the patio door. Cutting a small square hole in the drywall and then cutting through a section of sole plate and finally sliding through the siding at floor level only took a couple of minutes with the multi-tool. It is now the second tool to come out of my tool box. The first is of course the Skil-saw, The third is now my recip-saw. I never thought I would replace that tool in so many instances. In short, this saw will change how you do your precision work.

    Most important to get started is: Circular Saw (worm drive is best)……….Sliding Compound Miter Saw………..3/8″ Electric Drill with twist bits and flat wood bits (These are for framing)

    Also, if you want a concrete slab under it, a small Electric Cement Mixer. (make good concrete forms, leave a place to pour a concrete ramp from ground level to top of slab to wheel in lawn mower and/or other yard tools) and be sure to put in J-bolts to hold down the lower plates.
    You may also want to get a shingle stapling gun (easier on the fingers than driving roofing nails with a hammer) but it’s up to you and your budget. I hope I’m not preaching to the choir, since you are serious about building it yourself, you may be quite savvy already and may have detailed plans (blueprints) already.

    Buy the best quality you can afford. Get extra batteries if the item does not come with a couple, especially a drill. There used to be a lot of power difference between battery operated and corded drills but that isn’t as big a problem as it once was. I can’t tell you the last time my husband used his corded drill; it’s been years!

    Now circular saws that are corded still do a better job. He has a little battery operated circular saw that does great for thin materials like paneling because it doesn’t run as fast but for brute cutting strength, a corded one is still better.

    A miter saw can cut a lot of material like you would be cutting for a shed. Hubby uses his a ton! Then you would only have to use the circular saw for things like sheet goods (plywood or T111).

    Dewalt is one of the brands of choice here. Hubby has several Dewalt items and they have lasted and still work really well. He’s got a few of the higher end Black & Decker (used to be called Firestorm) and he’s also happy with that set up.

    Buy the best you can afford, what fits comfortably in your hand. You can go a long way with a cordless drill set up, and a circular saw or a miter/chop saw.
