I'm a big fan of DeWalt.. Have two 12V drills and a 10" miter saw.  I've 
had the first drill since sometime in the mid 1990s, and it's survived a 
fall from atop a 12 foot ladder and will punch a 1" spade bit and even 
larger hole saws through wood, and still going strong.  It's small, 
light and nicely balanced.  I can dangle it off one finger under the 
trigger and it's perfectly balanced and will stay put. It will do big 
jobs, and it's also small enough to get under the dash of a car for 
stereo installs and other tight quarters. Love the thing. Got another 
one on clearance sale 2 years ago for only $75 with two batteries.  I've 
used a friend's 18V DeWalt impact drill at work too, and it's a nice 
piece.  But I think the "more voltage is better" is BS for many jobs.

Suggested annual donation  $12.96
