corded screw driver or drill


Hello I am new to this forum.

I have a very old Black&Decker 2 speed hammer drill. It has worked well over 30 years, most of my married life!

During this period I have had loads of "re-chargable" drills and screwdrivers. The batteries don't last very long and are never charged when you need them, they all get binned because of the cost of battery replacement.

I have a Black&Decker multitool with Versapak batteries, one went duff and they cost from 15 up. ( Anyone know a cheapr source )

So what's the best "corded" tool either drill or screw driver.
Need variable reversable and a torque/clutch.
Not to expensive.

At least it might last, be ready when I need it and won't go flat.

Best = Watts or horsepower, inch-pounds or foot-pounds of torque, speed, reliability. . .?

We went through a lot of this with cordless drills on another post. With those you also needed to consider watt-hours but with corded drills this factor drops out.

It comes down to paying the least pounds for the most of whatever-quality-you-are-most-interested-in, while keeping reliability in mind.

How do you do the pounds of currency symbol?
I'd like to know how to do a degree symbol, like in "degrees celsius".

Well some strange replies.

I have spent a few days surfing the net looking for something similar to Ryobi D46CK.
But there doesn't seem to be anything.

There are some nice rechargable drills that will always be flat when I want them, run out of charge mid job and be in the bin in a couple of years.

I guess thats what the manufactures want a continual stream of sales based on land fill.

A better quality unit compared to the Ryobi D46CK is the Milwaukee 6580-20. It is way more expensive, but of much better quality. Best price I have found is about $166 compared to Ryobi at $30 rebuilt. About the same specs, but will outlast the Ryobi by years and years.

Thanks for reply
I think it's 120v and I need 240v
Plus cost it high for the occasional use.
