Thanks for so many replies - I do appreciate it. I still haven't bought anything yet... Apart from bookshelves, I was hoping to get more out of it with other shelves and such within the apartment - I would hope that having a drill would allow me to use it for practice just so that I may be able to do amateur projects later on if I have a small backyard -
But yeah, wanted to find something that had the best variable adjustable control without the fear of stripping or overdriving a screw I suppose.
While it would be nice to have a cordless - I would try to take it out monthly and just use it on something so that I will not kill the batteries.... I can add all sorts of shelving type systems in my house (i.e. to the walls)
I'm not sure on how these 12v cordless drills will be for "driving/screwing screws" - unless you can suggest one for light furniture setup - most likely though I was going to get a smaller compact cordless screwdriver... So far the Milwaukee 12v 3/8 compact seems to be the one in the lead along with the Bosch one too...
What other things could I try to do inside an apartment with these drills? Would love to see some more diy newbie applications... ?
Someone others had mentioned that I should stick with a corded 3/8 drill then too...
What would your thoughts be on a corded compact closer quarter drill? I saw some of the corded drills at lowes/home depot - but they are pretty long in construction and would surely hinder me in getting in tight spaces with some of these shelves/bookcases I would like to make.
