I have had this drill for about 2 1/2 years and i want to now give my thoughts on this drill and how it has performed. first of all i will have to be truly honest about this and wont sugar coat this one bit. the drill out of the gate was a big disappointment, it had hardly any power, but it did have enough to do the small screws i was using at the time, but as time went on i became less and less happy with its performance and decided to take it in for repair, there were several issues, one,...

Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

Ridgid 1/2" Compact Cordless Drill is Great

1017 days ago by patcollins | 6 comments »

I bought this drill at a Direct Tools outlet store in Hagerstown MD, they sell reconditioned Ridgid and Ryobi tools. Usually the only way you can tell that it is a reconditioned tool is the reconditioned stamp branded on the tool but this one had definate cosmetic wear. I wasn’t too pleased when I got it home and opened the box that it looked like it had been used on a construction site. Well, then I used it and WOW what an upgrade over the 12V B&D I had been using. The Ridgi...

Not what they said it was!

Not what they said it was!

This drill Does not perform the way they said it would. I give them 5 stars on the weight, it is very light, half the weight of a Dewalt drill. The first three weeks the battery would last 4 or 5 hours. Keep in mind I am working this drill 8 hours or more a day. A month later the battery life dropped dramatically. I am changing batteries 5 or 6 times a day. The torque is half of the Dewalt drill, even though the Dewalt is heaver and cost more I think it is worth the money. I was lucky eno...

Porter Cable 1/2" Corded Drill

Porter Cable 1/2" Corded Drill

788 days ago by DawsonWoodworking | 8 comments »

I regret I dont have a picture or model number for this tool. The image is a stock photo. It was a standard issue 1/2” corded drill by Porter-Cable. I was very unhappy with this product. It only lasted one job!, the swith in the trigger failed after minimal use on the first job (I was finishing a basement), rendering it inoperable. It was still under warranty, but due to lack of time, I had to keep working so I just bought a DeWalt drill from Home Depot to replace it. I’ve seen b...

I don't give anything 5 stars, except this

I don't give anything 5 stars, except this

If you only own one drill/driver in your entire life, this should be and could be the one. There is no better drill, in my opinion than the magnum. This drill will tear your arm off before it gives up, and has warning labels as such. These warnings should not be taken lightly. It is also possible to delicately drive screws without over torquing. The variable speed is extremely responsive and easy to control. highlights – Keyed Jacobs chuck. This is tough, has no discernible run-out ...

Took a chance with 12V ...

Took a chance with 12V ...

659 days ago by pendledad | 13 comments »

I was at HD comparing the 18/20V monster DeWalt and Rigid cordless drills and impact drivers. I was looking for an all around good drill/driver kit that I can use in the shop but also around the house for odds and ends. I don’t have any serious construction projects in the foreseeable future, so I didn’t need the 20V power house stuff that can drive 500 3” deck screws into treated lumber. One thing I really liked was the size/weight of the 12V lines. I compared the Milw...

Sandvick Bahco Screwdrivers.

Sandvick Bahco Screwdrivers.

630 days ago by vipond33 | 14 comments »

A screwdriver is easily the most common and useful tool in our kit, something you have in your hand every day. I have met and used many poor ones in my life and truly believe that there is a special spot in hell for the designers and manufacturers of the ones that hurt your hands in use. There are also remarkable screwdrivers out there that perform admirably. These Sandvik Bahco drivers are only part of a collection of about 40 or 50 that I own (between work and home) but are the ones I re...

Craftsman C3 19.2-Volt Lithium-Ion Compact Drill DD2100 - Review

Craftsman C3 19.2-Volt Lithium-Ion Compact Drill DD2100 - Review

616 days ago by Daris | 7 comments »

I recently purchased a new Craftsman Power Drill DD2100 from Sears.  I’ve been using it for about three weeks now and I have to say so far, I have NO complaints.  In fact I think it’s as solid a drill as I’ve ever used.  The drill came as part of a kit, and I was able to pick it up for $109 (on sale) from Sears.  For the price I think it’s a great bargain.  I was able to replace my old 19.2 cadmium battery-powered drill with a new high-end one for about $100, and s...

Rockwell 3Rill 12v lithium ion drill was a decent value.

Rockwell 3Rill 12v lithium ion drill was a decent value.

This drill was on sale for around $90 several months ago and it offered free lifetime replacement batteries which caught my interest. It didn’t come with a regular chuck – just accepts the 1/4” hex tools. I bought a regular chuck that fits in the hex end but it doesn’t have a keyless chuck. I don’t have the need for anything more than 12v. so the power is enough for me. I can’t really tell the difference between the different settings other than the sp...

Combo model # CLPK27-120Driver model # PS30BImpact model # PS40B12 volt lithium ion batteries. 30 minute charger. I have been using these for the past 3 days in my day job and in the shop. No problems at all. The main reason I went with these as they are lighter than the 18v combo sets. Here is my video review. Pros:lightcheapstrongLED lightbattery indicator on impact Cons:none so far
