Not as often, but do occasionally still use the corded tools. Main one being the worm drive SkilSaw. If I'm doing a bunch of larger holes, then I'll pull out the corded drill. Still use the corded ...

It may not be ideal, but I use the DW618 in my router table.  It's the only router I have, therefore it's the best one for the job. I use the fixed base.  When I need to adjust the height, I have t...

I'd probably start with something called conveyor brush. It's hit & miss at Amazon, but McMaster has plenty of it. May not be an exact replacement, but it's pretty close.
