I, with great enthusiasm, second everything you said.

There is also one that is 1/4" shank on one end and 1/2" shank on the opposite end. Used with a 1/4" or 1/2" guide bushing it will work too. The cone is a better idea but the one I have came with my Hitachi M12V. It sells for roughly 1/2 the price of the cone.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

?...how is a 'cone' ambiguous? Or did you mean as an alternative to the cone style? Just curious; I have the cone and it seems to work as intended.
