Gotta agree with owlass about a getting a quality one for less though.

Generally with any power tool I've stuck with Black and Decker. Have tried other brands but unless you're spending money on professional equipment, I found that the DIY use stuff from other manufacturers always went wrong. Just my experience.

How much to get a good one, bear in mind, by good I mean suitable for my needs, I wont be using it day to day, only likely to use it half a dozen times a year
#5
That one looks pretty reasonable, will deffo consider... Rep added
#6
If your just using it for a few times a year it will be fine.
A decent drill will start off around £100 for an 18v, twin battery, one hour charged combi drill.
Thanks for the rep BTW rep returned.

I got one in woolworths, think it was about £15, not very powerful, but it's ideal to use for small jobs, and superb to use simply for the screwdriver. I would suggest though, that if you have a lot to do, then invest in a decent drill and drill bits, as you don't want dodgy holes all over the place!

I have a cheap 18v drill from empire store i think it was, £30 but £18 with various discounts. Does the job as have the past cheap drills i've had (all eventually die). Recently did tons of drilling and driving on my sisters new house, kitchen units, beds, massive warddrobes, etc. Makes the job a million times easier these things.

I had the opportunity to use a 18v Bosch drill recently -- you don't realise how not-so-great cheap drills are until you've used something like a Bosch quality drill. The balance is perfect, the torque is great, the speed etc. Just everything about them.

I'll eventually buy a Bosch one even though i have a cheap one. A Bosch probably works out cheaper in the long run as they last longer compared to cheap ones. I bought Bosch screwdriver bits which don't get damaged like cheap screws which is a start i guess :-D

Also, if you want to drill bricks and masonry, you'll need one with hammer function so you'll have to go for a combi drill as opposed to a drill driver which is more expensive.

which one, screwfix or powertoolsuk ?
#13
If you are only going to use it rarely I wouldn't get a cordless drill, batteries don't like to be unused for long periods of time
