Drills for DIYers to Pros

Whether you are framing a home or simply hanging framed art, finding the right tool can help insure it can get the job done while also avoiding overspending on functions that you personally won’t use.  Here are two great drills spanning from entry-level to professional level grade:


Black & Decker 20V Max Lithium Cordless Drill

The combination of power and smarts makes this drill perfect for budding DIYers.  Rather than a standard manual clutch, an onboard sensor adjust the torque and signals the motor to stop when the screwhead meets the surface of the material you are drilling into.  What does that mean? Perfectly flush fasteners, with clean surfaces and far less accidental stripping of screws!


Milwaukee M18 1/2-Inch Compact Brushless Drill

This drill’s two-speed transmission and 18 clutch settings enables this drill to go from sinking screws in a deck to mounting tender drywall.  It’s torque is powerful enough for drilling through rugged materials, such as metal, and the 1/2-inch all metal chuck holds a wide variety of bit sizes furthering the wide versatility of this tool.  The brushless motor is extremely efficient and will allow you to drill for days without recharging.

There are tons more options than these two drills, so come on into our store and we’ll help you find the right tool for YOU!
