Dewalt DCD970KL review

Dewalt DCD970KL review

02-14-2011 05:00 PM by phtools | 5 comments »

I bought this drill to replace my Dewalt DC925, which fell off a roof and landed in a big nasty mud hole, I just figured the drill was toast and ordered a new one, saved the 925 for salvageable parts. The DCD950 and the DCD970 are the EXACT same drill except the clutch ring, which is black on the 950 and silver on the 970. The difference is the batteries that are included 950 has the XRPs and 970 has the new NANO’s(lithium-ion). OK, back to the comparison Pros of the DCD970/950 VS. the ...

Jebson 1409V - 3/8" (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill

Jebson 1409V - 3/8" (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill

Jebson 1409V variable, reversible corded drill & screwdriver 3/8” (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill I was looking for a small corded quality drill that will be easy on my hands to use, controllable, robust and powerful. The shop guy recommended (introduced) this drill to me and even though its price was a bit high for the moment I hold it in my hands it felt right, so I went for it. There was nothing fancy coming with it in the box, just the drill and its chuc...

Little green screwdriving man

Little green screwdriving man

I bought this to replace my 18v DeWalt hammer drill as my go-to screwdriver. I got the hex chuck version – it’s nice to be able to slip bits in and not have to deal with tightening the chuck. You can also get drill bits and countersinks in hex shank, so if you need to use it for those functions as well, you can. My primary objective with this purchase was to get something lighter, and therefore easier to get into tight spots and to reduce the strain on my arm when doing a lot...

The Milwaukee C12D

The Milwaukee C12D

01-28-2011 11:24 PM by steliart | 16 comments »

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 ...

I wish I had this years ago

I wish I had this years ago

My wife got me a craftsman impact driver for my birthday a while back. I know some people like to pick on craftsman, but I already had their cordless drill and I wanted to stick with interchangeable batteries. I use the 19.2V Ni-Cds. I know a lot of people swear by the Li-Ion, but those cost a lot more money. Now I’ll be able to upgrade in the future if I want, but based on my experience so far, I have no plans to do so. This thing is AWESOME! I can drive a 3” screw into a...

Porter-Cable 12v Lithium Combo Drill and Driver

Porter-Cable 12v Lithium Combo Drill and Driver

01-12-2011 12:26 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 14 comments »

By no means am I an expert qualified to give a professional review of this combo pack. But as the owner of a Remodeling company and a hobbyist woodworker I wanted to give my input on the dynamic duo… First off, Guys everything you hear about “Size Matters” is a myth in this case!! When it comes to the compact power of these mini work horses, don’t let the size fool you.. After purchasing my first set, I put it straight into the mix. From the very first jobsite, t...

Newest 12 Volt Lith

Newest 12 Volt Lith

01-07-2011 09:05 PM by Hermando | 4 comments »

I just wanted to share the latest addition to my cordless tool set. I have been building my Makita LXT inventory throughout the years. In the past I have used several brands of the 12 volt lithium sets. I first bought a Sears Nextec drill/jigsaw/flashlight set. It actually was a good set, but I found a few annoying things about the tools. The sears drill had a sticky speed switch and the jigsaw was awkward to hold in your hand and switch on. It worked better as a reciprocating saw. To ofte...

A 90% Positive Review

Using money I had gotten for my Birthday(ahead of time) and Christmas(gift cards for Lowes.) I bought a Porter Cable Drill and Circular Saw combo kit… $90… thats $10 cheaper than just the drill. Granted I did give up the Hard Case for the Soft Bag. It seemed common sence. I dont use the bag/cases much anyway… So alright, its no DeWalt. But its better than what I am used to. Now, yea, I have trouble with almost everything D/PC, but I figure maybe Ill have better luck ...
