Re: a bit of a gloat and needed guidance on dewalt cordless

I have a DeWalt 18v hammer drill. You are not going to drill big holes or that quickly, but it has been really handy on occasion for drilling 6mm holes for rawlplugs, etc. Don't pay a lot extra for the feature, but take it if it is free... THe chucks are so-so, at least for the price the sell for here. A freind put a chuck from a Metabo drill on his DW, and it is a far better item I also have the reciprocating saw (sawzall). Handy on occasion (such as cutting ceiling battens when putting in grilles), but it eats batteries and is limited in capacity. Handy, but a standard one would be the first choice in most cases. The battery connection and clips on the DW tools isn't that good. The battery packs are heavy and they don't stand up that well for site work. They also develop legs if you turn your back on them... OTOH, for the price you (will) pay, it will be a gloatable gloat. Geoff
