Choosing a cordless drill carpentry?


When I did millwright work,we had a set of shorty drill bits to go with the angle drill.

The guy I worked with was a master at sharpening bits---he collected all of the broken bits and made shorties out of them.

Check into the DeWalt 20 volt Lith Ion drill and Impact combo kits.

I did some research and the DEWALT DCK211S2 12-Volt would probably be your best choice

They have been my go to on finishing up my basement. There are some great reviews here if you are interested, they also review Makita.

Why did you remend the 12 volt over the 18 volt?

In the age of 18&20 vlt batteries available for power tools, I would imagine that most people have moved on from the 12vlt.

Specially since the 20 volt version of that combo is only 199

well honestly the 20v thing is just a marketing ploy. they are actually 18 . the 20v comes in when you check the battery with a voltage tester.. when its fresh off the charger it will read 20v but do it again while using the tool and it actually reads 18v

Because he is a spammer, and has been reported.

Choosing a cordless drill carpentry?


I bought some of those m12 Milwaukee. One drill and one impact. Oh man those impact drivers are really load for sure. Someone stole my impact driver and I do miss it. Those little drills are nice for taking up a ladder, but other than that they are total junk. I may by another one because of there size. The handle that holds the battery separates, the gears inside strip, the triggers breaks. It got old have to drive across town to trade them in, not to mention it took a week to get them back. I am switching over to ryobi as well. I wish the cordless hammer drill was never invented.

try out the new m12 fuel brushless line, they can almost go head to head with a 18v by bosch or makita any day. going from milwaukee to ryobi is like trying to drive on the highway and not get passed while doing 20 mph

+1 on the M12 line. I have the M12 drill/driver, as well as the bigger V18. Since I got the M12 I hardly use the big drill. The M12 does just about everything I ask of it and is very easy to carry around, especially going up and down a ladder. The battery charge lasts forever and recharges in less then 1 hour.
