Dad says, "don't waste your money, that Ryobi is just fine." ... and everyone knows that father knows best. I talked to him a bit and he has used several Ryobi cordless drills over the years and they've worked fine. I think I'll sit tight

It looks like Axiom is clearing stock out for the Xmas shutdown. In the start of the new year you probably will find that they have some more B stock coming in and can get a great deal. I know that the wife gave the go-ahead, but I would personally

The Dewalt I am looking at it LIon. As far as Makita vs Dewalt, I prefer Chevy... oh, wait, Toyota. I won't be taxing this thing. From past experience, I just don't trust plastic gears.

I walked right into that one Mark. Another big Makita fan here. Metal gears add weight if thats an issue. On sites there is every flavour of drill. If you spend the money generally you will do fine with any brand. Avoid brushless. Completely

Fred, if you are considering buying a hammer drill, check out IHL . They have some deals on the better brands of tools like Makita, Bosch ect. Sometimes the "better" deal isn't what it appears btw...NiCad vs LiOn, no comparison, the LiOn

I'm not sure yet Mark. I'm going to talk to my Dad tonight. He's actually moving to an apartment next spring, so there are a lot of tools he will have to get rid of. I really want the riding mower, but I don't think I have space in the living room

I have a DeWalt that came as part of a kit a couple of years ago when I upgraded most of my cordless tools from Ryobi. Has worked really well for the 20-or-so holes I've done in concrete, in addition to the everyday stuff. Sounds like you're good w

Storm. if you are looking at the M60, why not save yourself a few dollars and get the B-Stock pair for $1125 and i bet you will have a tough time trying to find where the flaw in the speaker is. Quite often it's under the front grill or on the bac

Bryan, although you say that both the RCA input and output connectors have come loose, you don't indicate if the output connector can still work. The input and output form an internal "Y", and the output leg(if not similarly damaged)serves

The SDS bits will fit in the chuck of a 1/2" drill. A good option. Good tip is to tape the bit at required depth too. Overdrilling is a waste of time, battery and can lead to anchors not setting right if you go that route. You are close to m
