re: Need a new drill for around the house and doing odds and ends.... any recs? - Clames
I use Amazon and BigSkyTool. I have batteries and a charger so I just look for bare tools rather than kits. Otherwise you'll have a battery and charger for every tool. I'd look at each brand and see what tools they have at 18V/20V, pick whichever one has the most tools you'll think you'll use. Get ...

re: Honore: America's in denial about gun culture - Clames
Actually, if you read the Breyer dissent you'd find that all of the SCOTUS justices concurred with the idea that 2nd Amendment protects an individual right (Stevens was more concerned with stare decisis than actually substantiating the "collective theory") though some of the supporting pieces of tho...

re: Need a new drill for around the house and doing odds and ends.... any recs? - Clames
It's built well. Using glass-reinforced plastics and metal to backup the gear cage adds weight and means it doesn't self-destruct after hard usage or a drop like the black-and-white Makitas do. They are pretty much the last word on power if you want something like a 1/4" hex impact that can drive la...

re: Need a new drill for around the house and doing odds and ends.... any recs? - Clames
Forgot to mention Hitachi. Overlooked but probably the best deal going in terms of what you get for the money. Especially if you go to a site like Big Sky Tool and pick up reconditioned tools. I've picked a few reconditioned tools from them and even the Grade C versions looked like they came fresh...

The little square bag combo kits aren't bad but they are nothing special. Light weight and enough power but they aren't as durable as some of their other models. Had an impact come apart at the gear housing and wasn't worth ordering the parts to repair....

re: Need a new drill for around the house and doing odds and ends.... any recs? - Clames
As long as you aren't drilling into anything tougher than mortar. That "hammer" is about useless in concrete with any real aggregate in it. The impact mechanisms simply don't generate the energy a proper rotary hammer does. I don't care if I have to run an extension cord but if I'm drilling concre...

re: Need a new drill for around the house and doing odds and ends.... any recs? - Clames
No better than any of the other's mentioned. After getting bought out a few years ago they have basically been made non-competitive against DeWalt as far as cordless tools go. Some of the corded stuff is still pretty good and the 360-series belt sander is still one of the best available....

re: Need a new drill for around the house and doing odds and ends.... any recs? - Clames
Me and a friend built a whole deck with his DeWalt 12V impact and my old 14.4V impact. That little thing drove 3" deck screws nearly as well as the 14.4V. If I didn't already have a set and just needed a handy drill/impact combo for around the house stuff I'd have no qualms over picking it....

re: Need a new drill for around the house and doing odds and ends.... any recs? - Clames
I prefer the DeWalt 20V lineup. Milwaukee isn't what it used to be. Take a look at a Milwaukee 12V vs a Craftsman 12V vs a Ridgid/AEG 12V. There's a reason they all share the exact same form factor. Milwaukee is owned by the same offshore that owns Ryobi, AEG, Ryobi, Homelite, Hoover, and a few ot...

re: Manchin/ Toomey Bill - Clames
No compromise in that bill. No national CCW permit reciprocity, no repealing of any parts of the 1968 GCA or 1934 NFA, no reopening of the registry for NFA weapons that was closed in 1986, nothing that permanently bars the Federal government from passing another AWB. I start seeing such language the...
