Exactly. These small routers are usually used for laminate trimming, inlay, or edge details. They are not meant for joinery. Most people prefer 1/2" shank bits for joinery because they are more stable and less likely to snap under pressure. I have snapped more than one 1/4" shank bit and don't buy them any more. For that very reason I don't have one of these palm sized routers because I don't want to buy any more bits. Even for small roundover bits I buy 1/2" shank so that I don't have to change collets.
LED bulbs are the only way to go in a garage shop if you live where there are bugs. I've also replaced all of my other outdoor lights with LED bulbs just to reduce the number of bugs that come to my doors. HUGE difference. I have some of these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008XHV9V6?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_search_detailpage and some CREEs in the garage now.
