Lithium ion batteries get all the buzz, but manufacturers are still producing perfectly capable nickel cadmium tools, like this 18-volt array from Bosch. In this kit, you get five tools and a flashlight for under $600. It's a steal compared with the $1,200 you'd spend if you bought each tool individually. The kit includes a 6.7-pound drill with an optional hammer setting and 550 inch-pounds of torque; a jigsaw with tool-free blade release to quickly change out hot or broken blades; a recip saw with a blade-stroke length that adjusts from a controlled 3/4 inch to an aggressive 11/4 inches; a circular saw that has a 6 1/2-inch blade and weighs 8.6 pounds; and a planer with cloth chip bag. about $550.
