Drills are probably the most frequently used tools by DIYers and a must have tool in DIY kit. They come in different types with different bits batteries and more, so here we made it simpler for you to learn about all of them and choose what you really want.
There are two Categories of drills:
- POWER DRILLS:
A high quality power drill is a real DIY essential (for Pros), capable of doing countless home, office, garden, industrial, etc jobs. They are the most common non-hand tool around. if youâ€™re thinking of buying your first drill, it is important to carefully select a quality drill and top-notch drill bits. Bits are to drills as paint is to a paintbrush or an ingredient is to food The result of your project is only going to be as good as what you put into it.
If you’re more experienced, or looking to do some heavy work, you may appreciate the extra power and torque of a corded power drill. These mains-powered drills are perfect for more demanding jobs and frequent use. They also offer features not available on most cordless models.
With a corded drill, youâ€™ll never run out of power midway through a project. They also have greater power and torque, making them more suited to heavy-duty jobs, such as drilling through masonry.
- Cordless Drills:
For the majority of DIYâ€™ers (Beginners) , a cordless power drill with a rechargeable battery will be a good option as they’re less powerful than power drills but they’re lightweight, easy to use, safe, and can be used almost anywhere..
Cordless drills have the advantage of being both flexible and convenient. You can use them to reach difficult places, especially when you’re working up ladders, in trees, in the loft or outside. There is no trailing flex to get in the way, so they can also be safer to work with.
With cordless drills you definitely need Additional batteries, the extra battery (if you keep it charged and ready) comes in handy during long days.
A solid, quality 18-volt cordless drill is going to be the workhorse of most DIYerâ€™s tool kits. More powerful drills, with 24-volt and even 36-volt power, are becoming more readily available. But with additional power comes an additional price and these tools are really the better choice for the pros. But, if you’ve got money to spare, then by all means go for the power.
