Cordless Drills More Power To Your Elbow

faa074000432My name is Dave and I have been a carpenter for the last 40 years and hope I can bring my years of experience and help you make an informed choice when you are looking to buy your next power tool for your home DIY projects or on site contracts.


The old way of doing things !

Power tools especially cordless screw drivers have come a long way since I started out in the trade, back in those days we thought we had the best thing since sliced bread just by owning a Yankee Screwdriver

Heck the marks we used to leave in wood using these things, and the amount of time you nearly took your eye out when you accidently released the shaft. Thankfully things have moved on now and inserting screws into your work nowadays is a very simple matter with the choice of cordless screwdrivers on the market today.

Hole drilling the hard way

When it came to drilling holes in timber we had the choice of  a brace and bit for the large holes for cable and pipe work.

For the fine drilling we had the wheel brace, both of these tools are still used today and are  available to buy online or the local ironmongers.

We did have electric drills, but those old boys were relics compared to what we have to choose from today.

Next generation Technology, brushless motors for cordless drills

Moving on to the present day, the latest technology hitting the market  is  Brushless Technology this is going to revolutionize the power tool market as one of the biggest problems with power tools has been that the brushes wear down after consistant use leaving the user stuck unless you had the forethought to have spares at the ready.

We have taken a broad look at most manufactures, including Panasonic, Bosch, Makita, Dewalt etc, just to name a few, to see which will be best suited to the job your working on.



What’s the right size battery for the job !

When deciding which drill to buy there are a few things that you have to take into account, first is battery size and then the power. Well since the power is determined by the size of the drill battery, a rule of thumb is the larger the battery the more power the drill will produce.

For the most part the largest battery is normally a 24 volt, there are a few around that are larger but these are far and few between. So if you’re going to be requiring plenty of power you really need to be looking at the 24 volt models for your needs.

Choosing the right drill for you

After you have decided on the voltage you require then you need to think about size and weight. As these can have an impact on working with your cordless drill. If you are going to be using the drill screw driver for long periods then you should be looking at purchasing as light a weight as possible.

Size; are you going to be working in confined spaces, if so you really need to be selecting as small a model as possible. Working on kitchen remodeling can be quite restrictive on space. Does the drill have a light incorporated, working in dark unlit corners can be difficult, being able to see what you are doing is a must.
