• Good Power Drill Kit
    7 replies, posted
Looking for a reliable power drill kit. Any suggestions? Cordless/Cord doesn't matter.
Estimate of your price range? [editline]27th April 2012[/editline] And for drilling what?
I'd like to keep it between $50-100. And drilling things such as hard plastic and wood.

Expect them to strip tips and have little or no transmissions. I wouldn't start looking at drills till you had at least $250 or more to spend, and they usually come in a set of 2. An impact and a motor. Makita had a set for a while that was around $260 and may still be on sale.

I got a $30 Meec+ power drill with a small battery to make it less cumbersome to use and a $20 set of drills. The drill has two speeds and is still working after about a year of periodic usage. OP just get whatever seems nice from a reasonably known brand. Yeah it's not gonna last a decade but it'll do you fine. Oh and don't get titanium/TIN coated drill bits they are completely useless and go dull in about 2 minutes.
I got this cheap Milawaukee Impact drill that works fine for all kinds of work. Can even do good in Contractor work. The only thing is the bits are kind of short, so you might want to invest in some extensions.

They sell a set of impact tips by milwakee for $20. I just picked them up and they range from single bay to triple length, pretty nice set.
