When you look at carpentry tool reviews, cordless sanders may not seem like a first choice. Even so, tools like the Makita LXOB01 orbital sander and others have made incredible strides. Some of our guys swear by them as they save tons of time in setup. Another unusual tool that has taken off is the cordless finish nailer. The RYOBI P360 Airstrike finish nailer was quickly followed by the DeWalt 20V Max angled finish nailer and others. Now, Milwaukee, Makita, Senco, and others have tools in this growing category. With these tools, you can get in and out without using a compressor or dragging an air hose.
