    I use my bosch rotohammer for drilling into anything concrete. I use my Milwaukee Magnum for holesaw applications. Makita 18v for everything else.

    Re: Pocket door issue... please help!

    I've been interested in that little Senco for a long time. Just seems to keep falling out of first position on my tool wish list. Specs say it's 20 lbs. vs The GR's 23 lbs. FWIW.
