Recommendations for buying Drill


Well, I bought the DeWalt miter saw because I am happy with my other DeWalt tools and I did not want to cough up the big bucks for the Bosch "gliding" model. I would say DeWalt's marketing is working well on me. I'm not unhappy with my tools.

hate to say it though. the dewalt mitre saws cant compete with the bosch models.. i own a bosch 4212L which is a dual compound but doesnt slide and i have 2 dewalt 12" sliders at work.. my bosch is 6 years old hte dewalts are 5years and 2 years old yet cant even compete for accuracy or power.

the cost thing is usually the deciding factor.. the only thing i like about hte dewalts in comparison is the weight..

Hi Jeff,

Currently I am building a workshop in my Garage with Shelves any where I have free wall space. I purchased the 12v impact/drill set when I started to build a storage bin for wood stock. I have been using the 12v impact driver with 3" #8 deck screws. They go in so fast, and with so little effort, that I have to be careful not to drill the screw head way down in the wood.

The real test will be when I build a closet organizer for my wife, we are still choosing the hardwood, but I know she will choose the hardest wood around.

Cost was definitely it for me. My DW 780 cost $400. I haven't seen the Bosch Glider for less than $680. I would really like to have the Bosch saw but I couldn't convince myself to spend the extra money.

if your going to be using hardwood your better off using dadoes and finish nails screws are really unsightly even with wood plugs used
