I use my 18 volt Makita Drills every day I work in the workshop. They pack a lot of power and are lightweight. I keep a drill bit in one and a Phillips screw bit in the other.
I went through a lot of different sanders before deciding on this one. Because I work with rough pallet wood, I am hard on sanders. Other than having to replace the sanding pad from time to time, the MILWAUKEE SANDER has held up tot he abuse I give it.
The other tool that puts in a lot of hard work in my shop is the 12" Sliding Compound DEWALT MITER SAW.
I use stain over a lot of my projects and my stain of choice isMINWAX.
