This by far is my most useful tool in my fairly extensive set of tools. It rarely leaves my side when working around
the house or on most projects. It is most useful as a screw and/or nut driver. It does have a drawback when actually used
as a drill motor because of the friction, hand tight chuck. The chuck will slip on anything but light duty drilling. For
anything more than light duty drilling, I would suggest the use of either a drill press or a heavy duty drill with
a key type chuck.
This particular brand (Drill Master - 18 volt) was purchased at Harbor Freight Tools for around $35. What a deal! For $35 you can
drill this thing into the ground every year, buy a new one and still be ahead of the expensive name brands that don't
perform much better than this. I have had this same Drill Master for over 3 years with the same original battery and I am
not very nice to it. I have attempted to drill through railroad ties until it smoked, and it is still ticking. I use it
several times per week. I just can't say enough about the ROI on this tool!
Compressed Air Can
A very useful tool, especially when working on computers. This is an absolute must when performing "periodic maintenance" on
most any computer, but especially those tower case machines that have been stuck under someones desk for years!
A can of compressed air and a soft brush will work wonders on those dust bunnies. Also, when those ominous squeaky
or growling sounds start coming from the internal fans, give them a good shot from a compressed air can to clean out the
dust. Sometimes, this alone with quiet a noisy fan and give it more life.
