There you were, next to your dad, peering over the edge of his workbench. He had such a wide variety of unexplained tools: hammers that made wonderful sounds, saws that left dust all over the place and, of course, the power drill. He'd plug that baby in and make holes of all sizes with each hole being more perfect than the last.
When he wasn't looking you'd try to pick it up- "try" being the operative word. Heavy? You betcha!
The traditional power drill with the short cord and heavy body was a man's tool, yet it seemed overkill when hanging a picture or driving a quick screw. Welcome to the age of the cordless drill.
A cheap cordless drill quickly took the place of the mammoth power drill. With rechargeable batteries, the extension cord problem was eliminated. With countless, easy to change drill and screwdriver bits, a variety of projects could be handled quickly and effortlessly.
So you want to pick out a dependable but low-cost cordless drill? Where do you begin? What options or accessories should you consider before picking out your latest tool treasure?
