Question by captainfreedomspace: Carpenters, what cordless set do you recommend?
I have just started woodworking and would like to start a cordless collection. I’ll start with the basics: drill, circular, palm sander, router. Can you all recommend a good brand. I know Dewalt is top of the line but it is out of my price range. My father has a small set of Ryobi 18v and seems happy with it. Is this a good set? Please also recommend some other necessary tools. I have several hand tools: screwdrivers, plyers, clamps.
I’ll probably start building simple projects: bookshelves, a ladder for a bunk bed, a child’s drafting table.

    Lucky I Guess….Great User Plane, October 26, 2012

    Purchased one of these from Grizzly, in a Grizzly labeled box, but I’m pretty sure it is from the same India mfr. No major issues. If you demand “out of the box & ready to go” for any type plane, stop shopping and get a Veritas, LN, Clifton, etc. All others will require some work.

    This plane required general cleaning off all rust preventive and some time with stones and sandpaper knocking off burrs and sharp edges. The “frog” portion (cast as part of the lower casting) was rough milled but flat and straight. The sole was a little off, but lapped flat with ~10 minutes work. The blade was reasonably flat and honed up nicely, and is the proper width. The cap iron looked ugly, but the tip contacting the blade lapped in fine. Blade adjustment is a little rough, but will get better with use. The body casting has a few pits at corners, but the sole is perfect.

    This model can be used as a chisel plane by removing the upper casting. The rails between the castings provide excellent realignment when reassembled as a shoulder plane. This model also allows mouth adjustment, and has a stop screw to set the mouth.

    This type of work is what I expect to do to a plane before I ever use it, new or old (the exception being the Veritas products I have, which are excellent but at substantial cost). This plane is not heirloom quality, but will be an excellent user.

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Shop Fox D3751 Precision Shoulder Plane (Tools & Home Improvement)
    Just got this in the mail today. Also will be shipping it back today. Plane arrived with a crack through the entire body of the plane. Also, the iron is 1/8″ wider than the plane body. Plane arrived in a Shop Fox package, and plane was labeled/logoed as such, which wasn’t in the amazon description. If I would have known that I never would have ordered this plane. Have had nothing but headaches ordering items made by/for Shop Fox. Item gets one star because Amazon won’t let me post this review without at least one.

    Most of my tools have cords, been doing woodworking for many years. Experience with cordless saws has been disappointing, not much power.

    I have a Ryobi cordless drill that works just fine, most of my recent power tool purchases have been Dewalt. I use my circular saw more than any other saw, compound miter saw often as well. Depends on what you are wanting to make. Table saw is another necessity if making cabinets or furniture.

    I’m a hobbyist woodworker and collect tools rather than sports cards and other folderol. (nine routers!)

    I have several of the Ryobi 18V tools and am very happy with their performance and price. Home Depot is supporting this brand enthusiastically and perhaps more importantly replacement batteries are affordable. ($ 25 ea or two for $ 40) This is in direct contrast to major players such as Dewalt where a replacement battery can approach the cost of a new tool. Exciting news! Ryobi has just rolled out the 18V Lithium battery and it will retrofit all of the older 18V tools.
    Replacement batteries are huge to hobbyists or more occasional users since if you need a battery in 4 years, you don’t want to throw away your lightly used tools.
    Now, that being said, IF I used them EVERY day in my occupation, I MIGHT choose another brand, such as Dewalt or Milwaukee 28V Lithium. However, you will pay a substantial premium for those contractor grade tools. I would be reluctant to pay the current price for Milwaukee Lithium when I could get the Ryobi, use it for two years and wait for the prices to drop as Lithium swings into greater production. The savings will likely make the Ryobi’s free for the duration.
    Not to harp, but the enormous range of the Ryobi one+ line is amazing. One of my fav’s! The 18V caulking gun. Granted, heavy, but sweet and makes caulking fun, fun, fun!
    IMHO, Drill, circ. saw are your basics. If you need it, spend good money on a compound miter saw AND a great miter saw stand. My personal….the Delta twin laser and the Ridgid Stand. Folds like a dream, and large pneumatic tires for easy rolling. Love it! “Tain’t light, but works nice.

    If you want it to last then save and buy Dewalt. it is cheaper in the long run!!!

    Ryobi is OK, but I had problems trying to use them professionally years ago. The price is definitely great, if they are for hobby/occasional work. As always, there’s a reason some tools cost more, they work better, are easier to use, and last longer. DeWalt is good, but pricey, especially when you consider they are the pro line of Black n Decker. If I were to buy a kit it would be Rigid. All of my Rigid tools are still working great, but if anything happens, they are guaranteed forever. You can’t beat that, its better than cheap batteries.

    Do not choose DeWalt. The DeWalt product is good, but it still has plastic gears and for this they are very expensive. The new series of Mikita, Blk/Grn has metal gears and costs much less. In fact, at Lowes, the tool sales people have been trained to direct you to the Mikita brand due to lack of warranty, better deals and customer satisfaction levels.

    Dewalt. The very best, hands down. Go with the highest voltage you can afford. I work in the fab shop of a large industrial plant. we, and the maintenance department have tried virtually every manufacturer over the years. all the guys agree…Dewalt, Hands down. for power, durability, and overall quality. This is a crew of over 25 men, three shifts 24/7/365

    Ryobi are good sets. I use one around the house and am about to tackle finishing a basement with them. I have no complaints about them. Very good quality for the price. A contractor buddy of mine recommended them to me. I figured they would be expensive, so I went to the Home Depot and was shocked by how affordable they are. I think I paid $ 200 or $ 250 for a 6 piece set.

    What are you planning on using your tools for? You said woodworking, do you mean professionally or just as a hobby?

    If you just do occasional work, you can get away with cheaper lower quality tools. I have a Durabuilt 9.6v (target brand) drill that I bought awhile ago. It holds up nicely for driving screws and light work. However, it wouldn’t last for 10 minutes on a construction site or shop.

    Really, it is you get what you pay for. I don’t think you can go wrong with Ryobi for medium duty to occasional heavy duty, but you may consider stepping up to Dewalt, Bosch, Milwaukee, ect if you are going to be using your tools to make your living.

    I have used all of these brands over the 30+ years of my working life. I would not trade My Craftsman cordless tools for anybody elses no matter the cost. Not only are they what I consider the best and easiest to use but the are also affordable. But as I said before, no matter the cost I would not trade my Craftsman brand tools for any others.
