Electric drill is the most commonly used tool in household or industrial processing or maintenance. There are many manufacturers and various brands online and in shops. If you are faced with a dazzling array of brands of power drills and do not know how to choose, here are some experience and suggestions may help you especially for home maintenance or DIY lovers who do not need to spend a large amount of money on the drill as industrial craftsman.
A few tips for selecting the right electrical cordless hand drill for yourself:
1.NOT the more expensive the better
Over 50% of us may believe the more expensive the better. So they choose an expensive one expecting it to perform good and last long. But hand drill is not something that only several dollars difference in price, some brands sold by over hundreds, others may half of the mount or lesser. Not everyone want to expend so much on the expensive one if they do not use the drill often. This is totally depend on your purpose. If you need the drill for everyday working, you can select an professional one with greater power and applications. If it is just for home maintenance or DIY, you can choose an economical one with also good performance.
Brand is an important factor to consider. We are not expecting it is one-off trade when we spend around 50 dollars for a drill. This does not mean we have to select from famous brand, such as Makita, BLACK+DECKER, DEWALT and etc. Many smaller brands with good reputations and excellent products has even high cost and performance. Reliable brand with good after-sales services is as important as the product itself.
3.Convenient and quick operation
Every performance craftsman knows how to use the power tools skillfully. But not every home DIY lovers can do as great as craftsman. So the tool itself should be handy and easy to operate for everyone. Easy to install, easy to select drill mode, easy to charge. Too complicated using steps or selecting mode may cause confusion and mixed up when operating the tools. Even destroy the material you are drilling.
4.Meet Your Purpose
For home maintenance, such as furniture assembling, fixing doors and window, roofs, walls, we do expect an drill which can really handle all these things for us. And sometimes, DIY a wood flowerpot, pet house, chair, and etc. A drill with 20+1 adjustable torque up to 35Nm/310in.lbs is enough for different applications, no matter drill into tile, metal or wood. Too much torque may cause higher cost in money and too small torque may not enough for some occasions.
5.Handy and Light
Choose a light-weighted hand drill seems to be very important. We do not need the drill to exercise our muscles as dumbbell. We need an impact drill which is easy to carry and hold for fixing and screw driving in tight spaces. And you are not tired when holding it for a long time. It will have more fun when enjoying DIY time with your kids if you choose a drill with less weight, kids can easily hold the tool and DIY together.
