This is probably the best drill/driver I ever had; it scores 100% in my ratings.It’s a heavy duty cordless drill/driver and it can work all day with 1 ½ batteries I was so surprised with its power lightness in handling it and it outlasted both Bosch and Makita by far. Bought it a year ago brand new in sealed case from a very reputable tool store and it was not cheap. Unless you own one you cannot grasp the value of this tool. Here are the technical specs for this masterpiece ...

Sandvick Bahco Screwdrivers.

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...

The Most Powerful Cordless Drill You'll Ever Own

The Most Powerful Cordless Drill You'll Ever Own

Millers Falls started making bit braces in 1864. The 772 with a 10-inch sweep was produced from 1914 to 1957. One of the main features is its “Lion” chuck, which allows it to hold square, round or tapered shanks with ease. Indeed, I have had used both auger bits as well as “regular” wood boring bits normally used in electric drills. Someone who has never used a bit brace will be surprised at the power you have with it, whether boring holes or say, driving screws! An...

The Hitachi WH10DL “Micro” impact driver performs well beyond it’s diminuitive size.

The WH10DL includes two batteries, 40 minute charger, and a nice hard side carrying case. For new tools, Hitachi offers a lifetime warranty on their Li-I...

I have been debating on picking up an impact driver for quite some time. I have a nice 14.4v Dewalt cordless drill and figured why would I also need an impact driver? After doing some extensive research and reading reviews online, I landed on the Ridgid impact driver offered by Home Depot. With a current price tag of $169, it’s less expensive than some of the other brands which was appealing to me as this felt a little more like a “want” purchase instead of a “need&...

My DeWalt 18 Volt 4 piece Combo Kit

Over the years I’ve gone through many low end mediocre battery powered drills. I think this set is going to last me a long time. When you put one of these in your hand, you can tell, just by the feel, that you’re holding a quality tool. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Hammer Drill Features: Variable speed Dewalt built high-torque motor delivers 500 in-lbs. of maximum torque, 2,000 rpm & 34,000 Beats/Minute. I’ve used this drill...

Took a chance with 12V ...

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...

This has to be the best hammer/drill/driver that i’ve ever used. It’s power/weight combo is perfect. I could use this drill all day without being fatigued and the battery would keep on going. Drilling 1 1/4” holes with speedbore max bits does not pose a problem for this drill. It eats through lumber with ease. This drill easily drills in 3/16” holes in concrete (just as fast as our corded hammer drill) to drive in anchors and it doesn’t take much to drill u...

This kit comes with a 3/8” VSR drill and a 1/4” drive impact driver, two batteries, 50 minute charger and a canvas carrying case. I’ve only had this kit about a week but it seems to have plenty of power for what it is, after all, it’s only 12V. From the True Value Website: Get two Master Mechanic 12V lithium-ion drills for one low price. Driver combo kit consists of: 3/8” compact cordless drill that features 2 speeds, 0-350 rpm, 0-1050 rpm, 17 torque set...
