I thought my 3-range variable speed 12V Dewalt was fast enough, but it
only goes up to 1800 rpm.
What are you trying to do? For something small and high speed, would a
variable speed Dremel tool do? Cheaper battery operated ones do 15,000
rpm and newer ones can to 30k rpm on battery like corded models.
It's mainly for deep pilot holes into wood with drillbits at .125" or so.
I was using an old hammer drill that went up to 3200 rpms and
it was much better at clearing chips out of the bit than the slower
drills. The downside was that the hammer drill was heavy,
and now it has died altogether.
a Roybi ...also own 3 drill presses and I can not remember the last
time I needed to run any at anywhere close to 3000 RPM... I do 90
percent of my work in wood...and naturally drill a lot of pilot
holes... BUT I think you need better bits... NOT more speed... Pine
etc will gum up even the best bits however...
DeWalt and Milwaukee may be overkill for your use.. My Roybi is cheap
and I carry it in the truck and would not be real upset if I lost
it..BUT it works just fine... 14 V will handle 90 percent of yoiur
needs...heck ever 12 V is fine for what you want to do..
