More than enough speed, more than enough torque - THE BEST

i;ve owned and used several corded drills over my career, but this is the best balanced drill I've seen.  There is plenty of power and speed to safely drill any type of material and more than enough torque.  I love the built in belt hook which frees up my hands for climbing up a ladder.

Chinese Craftsman Drill is a Disappointment

My disappointments:

1. The drill speed lock switch is WORTHLESS. It only locks on at full speed (yeah good luck at planting that drill bit on wood or metal at 2500 rpm, your bit will wander everywhere)! All the other Craftsman drills I have are 15-25 years old, made in the U.S.A., and have the turn knob in the trigger switch that allows the user to infinitely adjust the lock on speed to any rpm. Even my cheap $12 drill has this feature.

2. The so-called level is out of calibration. Not even close. You can check for square by puttin a builders level up to the chuck (bit holder) face at 90 degrees. The drill I received drills at an upwards angle when it says it's level.

3. It's made in CHINA. It's the first Craftsman drill I ever bought that was not made in the USA. Bummer! If I wanted a Chinese made drill, I would have gone to one of Craftsman's competitors. The 2 plastic body halves are of different red colors! What's up with that ?

4. 2500 rpm ? Who needs 2500 rpm ? 1500 rpm max is all you'll ever need. I'd rather have this 6.5 amp drill max out at 1500 rpm and deliver more usable torque. That's what every driller wants, is that twisting power when using their drill as a screwdriver. 2500 rpm Generates too much heat, especially in metals. Good drill for smoking and destroying your bits. My other 3/8's drills max out at 1200 rpm, while my 1/2 inch drills max out at 550 and 800 rpm. A good quality bit takes all the work off the drill. Use good quality bits and give the bit time to sink into the hole. It needs time to cut and drop into the hole. Cheap quality bits just burn out your drill quickly. By pushing and forcing the bit, you not only destroy the bit, but burn out the bearings and destroy the drill too. Always use low speeds and oil on metals! Have fun.

5. Forget the case. Keep it in a 5 gallon bucket with your bits and a 15-25 ft extension cord. You'll save time and use it more.

6. Power Indicator ? If you're so dumb or blind that you can't remember that you have it plugged in or can't see that it's plugged in, then you're not qualified to use a power tool and should not be drilling.

My Likes:

1. Red Color. I can find it quickly

2. 10 ft. Cuts down on the need of dragging out an extension cord.

3. Keyless chuck. If a 1/16 inch bit slips, wrap a little tape around it or something else. Or unlock the chuck and re-align the bit. But you may have a defective chuck.

an old friend...

Excellent tool. I had this version many years ago and gave it to my brother. I saw it in the store and with a 10 reward and sale price it was too good to pass up.

Better ergonomics that my older version and I like to power on light. Plenty of power and having the non-key chuck is really convenient.

Good drill so far.

|

I bought this for a roofing project and am happy with it so far. If it lasts the way other Craftsman tools have lasted for me it will have been a good buy.

horrible

First time I purchased a no chuck drill. The bits come loose right in the middle of the job. Waited too long to return it or I would.

Great Drill

|

This is just what I was looking for in a drill. It has plenty of torque for tough jobs and a hard case. The trigger makes it easy to control bit speed.

great corded rear handle drill

|

I bought this great corded rear handle drill at Sears last week. Of course it is a Craftsman which is the best brand available in small tools. I am very happy with my purchase. I did not want a cordless drill because, in my experience, they do not seem to have the power I need. I am a woman, and cannot press the cordless drills hard enough to make them work. This drill has a long cord and is very powerful. It will do the indoor work I need it for such as hanging new drapery rods. If I need it outside, I can readily attach it to an extension cord. Give me an old fashion corded drill any day. This drill is very powerful and strong! I highly recommend it.

Awesome Drill

|

I think this drill is very well made.
Has excellent balance and is very durable. A great product for the price.
I make toys for charity fund raisers and so I use this drill almost everyday.
I only use Craftsmen tools.

Very powerful drill!!

This is the first drill I have ever purchased and I love it!! There were numerous projects in my house that I kept repeating to my GF " we need a drill" before I decided on this one. I made quick work with those projects and looking for more!!

Husband loves it

This was a Christmas gift to my husband, he has a cordless drill but wanted a corded one. This was a great deal and with craftsman you can't go wrong. It has just enough power for the projects he does. Great buy!

Excellent Drill

|

I have owned a Craftsman Drill for over 20 years that I have used heavily and it?s still going strong. I recently have some tasks to complete that call for a more powerful drill and I decided to stick to Craftsman. I haven?t had this new model for 22 years, and quite frankly no one makes tools like they used to, but this seems to be a quality, high performance tool. The rotation is tight and smooth and the variable speed works as advertised. You can easily control the drill to turn slowly if you don?t need full power. The speed direction control seems a bit flimsy, but that?s my only drawback so far. A great value at the price. I look forward to many years of use.
