Flashlights are always handy to have around and the music from a radio seems to make the day go by faster, so why not combine the two into one compact package? Besides, you can't show off your slick dance moves in the dark.

In this article I am going to review two brushless drills that are available now, the 2604-22 Milwaukee Brushless Hammer Drill and the LXPH05 Makita Brushless Hammer Drill. Just for a stat comparison, I also threw in last years HDH181 Bosch Hammer Drill which is not brushless.

Makita UK has come out with a great video that showcases the new RT0700C router and all of the different base options that can be used with the new 1-1/4 HP compact router. Be aware that the kits themselves appear to be different from those offered here in the US, but the tools should be pretty much the same. The video also shows how the router can be used with other Makita accessories, like the track for their track saws. If you want to know more about the Makita RT700C before you make your purchase,...

Remember back in December I posted an article about rumors floating around the internet that Makita was coming out with an oscillation tool and that an 18-volt cordless model was also in the works?
