Buying a quality drill can mean the difference between drilling a hole in a couple of seconds, or having to take numerous bits to drill one single hole. One type of drill that many people are starting to buy more and more is the cordless drill. They are easy to take anywhere with you to do almost any job, and with the right type of battery, have about the same amount of power as a drill that you plug in the wall. Probably one of the best drills out there on the market today is the power 18v cordless drill. There are a number of different companies who make this drill including; Dewalt, Hitachi, Black and Decker, Makita, and Bosch.
The first power 18v cordless drill we will discuss is the lithium-ion impact drill/driver kit sold by Bosch. This drill runs right around $400, and gives its users the power to fasten like an impact, with the drilling and driving power of a drill and driver all in one tool. The best feature on this drill is, of course, the lithium-ion battery that powers the unit. As we all know, lithium-ion batteries are by far the best batteries to power any type of cordless tool or appliance.
Another quality power 18v cordless drill is the 1/2 inch compact drill and driver kit sold by Dewalt. Now, this drill does not necessarily have the charge time like a drill with a lithium-ion battery would have, but it is very compact and can easily handle all of the jobs that a larger cordless drill could do. The kicker that really sells this drill as much as the Bosch lithium-ion drill is that it sells for about half the price. It comes with two rechargeable batteries and a charger.
The last power 18v cordless drill we will discuss is the lithium-ion hammer drill by Hitachi. This drill provides all of the charge time that comes with a lithium-ion battery, while still carrying a very good price. The thing that hurts it is that it does not have as many features like the Bosch drill has. However, like all three of these drills, it will help you get any job done.

Wood Working Machines
By Owen Jones Wood has always been popular as a building material, because it was abundant and easier to manipulate than alternatives like stone. However, man has always required tools to work wood efficiently. First hatchets and then chisels and later on saws and drills. Between 250 and 150 years ago, during the Industrial Revolution, early wood working tools, amongst others, were mechanized. A 100 years or so ago they became electrified. The first electric drill was made about 100 years ago. [READ FULL ARTICLE]

Women and Power Tools
By Jude Herr I have to say, growing up in Buffalo, NY with a dad who was a contractor, I was quite sheltered from the fact that "most women don't use power tools". I really had no clue that there was an kind of sex discrimination in the contracting or power tool world. Naive me, all that I heard about was how my Aunt Ronny helped my dad put the roof on our house and my Aunt Marge was refinishing all the woodwork in her home. I guess I'm lucky because I was brought up thinking that as a woman, there wasn't anything I couldn't figure out how to fix or remodel or any power tool I couldn't use. When I bought my first condo, my dad brought me a suitcase full of power tools on his first visit. [READ FULL ARTICLE]
