    im looking for a corded drill(i want to keep it forever and i know these never lose power. my grandpa has a craftsmen that is from like 1980 and it still works like brand new.) and i also want a drill that has a keyed chuck, all for less than 100 bucks. i saw this one

    http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00998383000P?prdNo=15&blockNo=15&blockType=G15

    and i also saw this one.
    http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc...splay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053

    and HD also has this.

    http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs...ling/Driving_Set&locStoreNum=4715&marketID=44

    what do you think? also do i need a keyed chuck? last time i used an adjustable one it wouldnt hold the bit in place when i was drilling some steel.when the keyed chuck went right thru it

    Go with Milwaukee/Makita/Craftsman/Dewalt. I wouldn't go with a Black and Decker as they aren't the best quality, but I guess if you aren't doing much with it it could work out for you.

    milwaukee is definitely better quality then the black and decker.

    you get what you pay for so shell out a lil more now and it will last longer :)

    I'd go with a big name. I prefer makita, but dewalt is my 2nd choice. I've broke my share of black and decker and craftsman powertools. Don't bother with the no names, they aren't worth the hassle.

    i have an older dewalt corded/keyed 3/8ths chuck.....works superbly, even after all the use it has endured. brushes in it are still in good shape.

    Caleb ,

    This is the corded drill I have , Dewalt pistol style with a 1/2 " chuck so we can get long auger bits in it , as well as a handle so you don't rip your arm out of it's socket when it binds .

    Excellent drill for this price range , variable speed and reversable , I would buy another , but the one I have won't die .

    Found this link on the US home Depot site , so the price is probably accurate for you .

    i have the milwaulkee one you posted the link for. Got it on sale for $89 about 3-4years ago. doesnt show any signs of quiting and will twist your arm outa yer socket if it catches... i love it... but i use it for heavy duty stuff... you might be better off getting something smaller. :notsure:

    Milwaukee will destroy you before you destroy it. I have several and never had a problem and I'm not exactly easy on them. I run auger bits on them and big hole saws. If it fits in the chuck it's put to use.

    I have managed to burn a few Makita's out though running hole saws. The switches also screw up eventually. Some people like them but me personally I do not. They just screw up to easy and usually not worth fixing.

    i had my miwaulkee cordless on a roof drilling into a chimney for a chimney topper/ spark arrestor. dropped the drill straight off the roof "about 4 stories to the peak"

    luckily it landed on the drill broke the bit and the battery went flying off of it but nothing broke on the drill and still workd fine...

    my brother in law dropped my makita cordless about 3 stories on its side on pavement. cracked the plastic but still works no problem...

    i also used my Milwaukee drill the 1/4" angle iron for my rear bumper, went through 3 batteries and the drill got so hot the air coming out burned my hand... still works like a charm.


    makita, milwaulkee cant go wrong. both have stood up to way more abuse than my dewaults

    dewault is a better quality (glorified) black and decker.

    The OP is looking for a corded drill , under $100 .

    DeWalt is indeed a re-branded Black and Decker . Same company .

    I like the Milwaukee Hole Hawg myself :D

    You can't go wrong with Milwaukee tools for sure , I was just giving a review of one of the drills I own and is used by me and my crew daily .

    ive used a half inch makita corded drill with a keyed chuck, and it handled anything big or small. i broke the bit before i broke anything else. i like a nice heavy one. i think i will wait til after christmas or something to get a good deal on the milwaukee

    Milwaukee is the way to go. I was a pipe fitter for four years and had the same drill the entire time. I drilled through cast iron pipe, cement walls, cement foundations and have never had a problem with mine. Just hold on tight and you'll be good to go.
