          I do alot of pocket holes in hardwood and the 18v drills just canr keep up so i figured try a corded drill and since i own mostly Ridgid i figured give it a try.
          It works get and has all the power i need.
          the only problem i have now is stopping to let the bit cool down.
          It does have a keyed chuck so i use it as my main hole driller and have a separate 12v screw driver with a clutch for the screws.
          You cant go wrong with this drill.

          This may be a laminate trimmer but I use it for everything.
          I build cabinets,picture frames,desks and everything else i can think of and this little router is a gem.
          1st its variable speed and i use a lot of oak,purple heart and maple.it cuts threw them with ease.
          2nd all the power that i need for trim and edging. i dont have to bring out my big boys and change the collet to 1/4 inch so it saves me time.
          3rd and this is cool,it comes with and edge guide,its not an order later option and it works great and is sturdy.
          All i can say is if you want to save time and need a good 1/4 inch router buy this one it replaced a gorbage pc with collet problems and im not looking back.

          I own and only buy makita products due to the quality and durability of there tools.
          This drill is no different,I have the 18v Nicad and it still works as good as day one but wanted to upgrade to Lithium. It is a major upgrade in that it has more power,longer battery life and lighter weight.
          If i had one complaint it would be that i miss the makita green,with it being white you'll have to watch out that its not stolen on the job site.
          Would and do recommend all of makitas tools to anyone needing tools that work and work every time you pick them up.
          Watch out for this drill it will leave you wanting more of makitas tools.

          Capture a handcrafted, artisan appearance that seems to have been derived directly from twentieth-century Spain with the Merola Tile Novecento Subway Cobalto 2-1/2 in. x 5-1/8 in. Ceramic Wall Tile. With a cobalt hand-painted crackle watercolor glaze, this rustic tile offers a glossy, reflective finish for a glass-like appearance. Asymmetrical edges and a smooth surface with varying indentations throughout this glossy tile fashion a handmade appearance. Derived from the classic subway format, this tile is tastefully smaller for a distinctive, unexpected design element. Due to its partially handmade process, each tile could offer slight size variation. This old-world tile is great as a cohesive look or paired with other items in the Novecento program. Intended for interior wall use, this tile is an excellent selection to accent your backsplash, shower wall, fireplace facade or accent wall. It is necessary that you seal this tile before grouting to prevent the absorption of staining agents over time.

          Install the yard or pool fence you've always dreamed of and without the back breaking work of digging holes and pouring concrete. Virtually maintenance free and backed by a lifetime warranty, this simple but elegant yard and pool fence will look new for years to come. The best part of this fence is the innovative installation method. Because there is no digging deep hole or pouring concrete, it takes a lot of the time and labor out of installing your fence. You install the yard and pool fence post much like chain link has been installed for the past 50-years by first driving a steel 1-5/8 in. galvanized pipe anchor (included) deep into the ground with a sledge hammer or post pounder. If your pipe is slightly crooked after installation, you can utilize our patented leveling donuts (included), to adjust into level to compensate accordingly. Once you sleeve your vinyl post over the pipe, it's straight and level. The end result is a sturdy and strong permanent fence that wills last decades. For more detail, see our installation guides.

          Can anyone give me a comparison of this particular model versus the 8 Qt Insta Pot brand besides that this one is way bigger. Is it well made and have a good internal cooking chamber and does it seem to be worth going off brand? I have never heard of this brand before so a little skeptical, but I want a large size and 8 qt just doesn’t seem big enough for what I need it for
          Thank you
