Hmm, I suppose a 1/2" drill should have a larger gear box. I went by Canadian Tire today and did not even see a shelf space for the 1/2" hammer drill, but according to their web app there are two in the very store I was at. Go figure. Ed

When we moved our hoist at work , the boss bought a 1/2" mastercraft combination hammer drill and it worked great and still does even after drilling 10 5/8 holes in the concrete. Chances are you wont need the hammer drill again but the one he g

The low-level RCA input and output connectors on my EP500 amplifier have come loose and the input connector is no longer working (unless I apply constant pressure to it to make a connection). So I'm trying to determine the best way to address this i

I've used Tapcon and various similar-type replacements(Cobra, Duracut) all over the basement(subfloor, framework to hold insulation batts against wall) to great effect. Alas, I must admit I have a Rotary Hammer with SDS bits, not the straight shank b

Who knew drilling a couple of holes could be so difficult. 3 days, two sets of bits and two drills later I have two [barely] acceptable holes and a crappy set of bits to return. How can Tapcon throw in a bit that is so far our that a 5/32 bit is l
