  1. Starting to change out all my corded tools to cordless and the MyBest.Tools are excellent.I just recently used it to router hinges for a 4 sets of doors with no issues and still plenty of power left (used a 3ah battery).Great visibility at the cutting area also.

  2. You covered the bare-bones basics.
    You didn't mention top-bearing pattern bits nor the other size bits (1/8" and 3/4" & even larger!) typically for commercial stuff, such as the small, hand-held laminate trimmers and the large scale pattern moulding machines.
    They're not as common though I have seen them available for home use by DIY'ers.
    Some people may want to know this, as they may be trying to decide what direction they wish to go with their tool purchase.

  3. Great video, what’s the rule of thumb on the direction when using it hand held? Left to right or right to left, I was told because the direction the bit is rotating, left to right is correct, what are your thoughts? thanks
