Is it possible to have too many drills?

Recommended Posts

Had a 3/8 corded and a 3/8 12V cordless.  Got a d**n good deal on a 3/8 19V Craftsman the day after Thanksgiving.  

Then Sears had to go and put a 4 tool combo on sale today, so now I've got a 1/2 19V as well.

I'm going to have to start doing a whole lot more drilling and screwing.   :-/

DeWalt was awesome, 5 years ago. Their product has really gone downhill recently IMO.

Makita is making great cordless tools again. I really like their 14.4 cordless impact. If you are running screws one at a time, a small impact is the only way to go. Specially on decking.

The Milwaukee 28v Lithium Ion stuff is absolutely AWESOME, but really spendy.

Dewalt bits are still pretty good. Then again I'm a rookie... :-/

dewalt is junk in my opinion, for the price anyway, for that kind of money i would go with makita or bosch.

Dewalt is garbage.

As far as cordless tools I am sold on Bosch all the way.   They are the most durable longest lasting drill I have ever used and you can't beat the 3 year warranty.   I tried one about 4-5 years ago when I had 2 Dewalts peter out in less than 2 years time and will never look back.

Havent got to use Bosch cordless stuff yet.

Their rotohammers and miter saws are awesome though.

I just picked up this chop box last month.

I've got 4 of the Dewalts and they don't even come close to the 19v

Craftmans drill. The best bits I can find are Hanson bits and I can't keep up with them. I also bought one of the Drill Doctors and it's a peace of junk too. Also I can't find my bubble gum smillie WHO moved it ?

Drill bits.

You cannot have too many drill bits.

Long ones.  Short ones.  Ones in between.

Wide ones. Skinny ones.  All types.

Drill bits.

Burley, you need more drill bits.  :D

I've got a DeWalt 12v cordless drill I've had for quite some time.  It's been a good friend and works outstanding.

A couple guys have picked up the new Makita 10v model drills recently for work.  You get 2 for $150. One is a regular, the other an impact.  

Amazingly light is all I can say.  I'm thinking of getting a pair myself.

Let me clarify that I am making my assesment of them by working with my drills daily doing heavy duty drilling.   Installing truck accessories, all of my work is done in metal and drilling truck frames and running a 4" holesaw through a truck bed and going up to 1/2'-5/8" hole through 1/4" steel will really put a drill to the test.
