The guy who stole it has it on Ebay ;-)
I would go with the 18v black and white Makita. (LiON)
It is smaller and more powerful. They are usually in the $70
neighborhood with the fast charger and 2 batteries, You can recharge
one faster than you usually can kill one.
From a brief look, it looked to be an older design. There have been
many improvements in cordless tools. Probably the best is Lithium Ion
batteries. I have always liked the Bosch drills, mostly because of the
one hand chuck. But many brands now have this feature. I had an older
14.4 volt Bosch, 1/2", but when it disappeared (left on the car and slid
off to who knows where?), I bought the latest and greatest Bosch 14.4.
However, the this one is actually a wee bit heavier and more powerful
than the old one. And, it's getting harder and harder to lift the drill
above my head. My niece put me onto the new Bosch 12 volt. It's only a
3/8", super light and has a lithium battery. It's not quite as powerful
as the old 14.4, but, for 98% of my uses, it's plenty powerful and is my
go-to drill most of the time. That all said, I'm not 100% Bosch person
and also have some DeWalt stuff and like them too. When I needed to
replace the 18 volt batteries for the yellow tools, 5 3/8" circular saw,
a recip saw and a fluorescent lamp, I bought a DeWalt 1/2" drill with 2
batteries and a charger for $100 (Lowe's). Not the super XRP batteries,
but much lighter. I now have 3 battery drills which is really handy
when building small projects where you have to go back and forth between
3 different bits. Some people would say use a corded drill, but for my
uses, the batteries work well for me. If I used my tools 8 hours a day,
I might have a different view.
Don't know but Ms. bought me Rockwell's 3Rill for birthday present, along
with lifetime battery warrantee. the small handle holding the battery and
'light weight' makes this tool incredibly useful. Get the FULL set that
comes with it, too. PS: with two batteries and quick charge have NEVER
been left waiting for power.
The batteries are still around. Sears parts direct and 9000 Neiman rd op ks
But not sure of the model number anymore. Sears 12volt industry crastman 3/8 I
also want to know what torch it was. I am thinking about 400 is that close?
Thanks everyone for all the help. You all been a great help.. Take care j
