My DeWalt 18 Volt 4 piece Combo Kit

My DeWalt 18 Volt 4 piece Combo Kit

2344 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 3 comments »

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...

Don't touch my drill!

Don't touch my drill!

2355 days ago by matter | 4 comments »

I bought my DC925 in September. It has been my faithful sidekick since the day I bought it. Power to spare- you can expect the screw, bolt, or your wrist to break before you stop this drill. I have used it for everything from installing small hinges, to drilling 1” holes in concrete, to mixing mortar. The batteries last forever, the only time I have used more than one battery in a day was building a deck where I put 3500-4000 3” screws in. The battery still did about 2500 sc...

Best darn driver I've ever used

Best darn driver I've ever used

How many tools evoke real pleasure each time you use them? This Makita will do that. I was replacing a patio cover while doing a “Paint the Town” project a couple of years ago. The cover was composed of dozens of 16’ long 2×4’s that needed to be screwed into the crossmembers. A guy that fixed my garage door recommended I buy this Makita for the job. Boy, was he right. Now I typically reach for the Makita before I consider any other drill/driver. The impact takes ...

Strength, reliability, and affordability

Strength, reliability, and affordability

2373 days ago by Rob McCune | 0 comments »

I bought a set of Ryobi One+ tools a couple of years ago. The reasons I bought the set are several. Affordability was chief among them. I don’t remember how much the set was but it was half what the DeWalt set was while still being 18v. The drill that came with the set was almost the same as the P211 but without the hammer drill feature and the accompanying handle. It was very durable, very dependable, but the trigger switch went out after only a year. I bought a new switch and in...

Metabo PowerMaxx

Metabo PowerMaxx

This little 4.8 volt drill/driver is fast becoming my go-to tool. A true pocket-drill, it has more torque than you can imagine, and comes with 2 batteries, a 90 degree adapter,a screw-on chuck, and case. While I wouldn’t want to screw an entire deck surface with(batteries charge overnight), it drives screws in hardwood very nicely, and is very compact. You just won’t believe the torque! Easily 5 stars! Purchased from Rocklers!

Bosch Pocket Driver Packs a Punch

Bosch Pocket Driver Packs a Punch

2378 days ago by Blake | 11 comments »

I really like my new pocket driver. Bosch has reinvented the cordless driver, and it leaves nothing to be desired. The way it fits in your hand makes you feel like a cowboy. No kidding. It really makes it want to practice your quick-draw. Due to it’s Li Ion battery it only weighs 4.88 lbs but delivers 80 in.-lbs. of Torque with a variable speed trigger. The LED light is the icing on the cake. I like my heavy duty DeWalt 14v cordless drill for boring holes but sometimes I go back a...

The Most Powerful Cordless Drill You'll Ever Own

The Most Powerful Cordless Drill You'll Ever Own

2381 days ago by Eric | 4 comments »

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...

...at least it spins.

...at least it spins.

2384 days ago by YooperCasey | 8 comments »

We all have made a bad tool choice. For alot of folks I hear of that old favorite the wobble dado cutter. For me it has been a few Black and Decker tools. I bought this drill for approximately $30. It is a rather featureless drill, it has a keyless chuck which is the one reason it got more then one star. The chuck holds tightly and I have yet to have a bit spin loose and I can still loosen it by hand. The other star got added because at least it spins. Now to the interesting points. ...
