My Big Guy Cordless Drill Set Powers Through the Twists
I bought this Kawasaki high charged drill
when I set up my current art studio. My old drill, the one I used to wire the second house we built, had just kicked the bucket.
It was put to rest before the moving truck arrived. You might want to read the story of how I used some of these tools like the old drill, and the Estwing hammer, below, at Tools I Used to Wire the House.
My wood workbench needed assembly
and the drill set had everything needed to put it together securely. Moving was a huge job, complicated by endless migraines, during unpacking, so I wanted to simplify everything possible, and number one was buying the right drill.
Cordless was a must-have
because my studio's pretty crowded and because I needed to install some heavyweight curtain rod brackets up close to the ceiling in all the windowed rooms. Wrestling with a hefty drill over my head while standing on a stool was enough of a challenge to my stability, so it was an easy decision to go cordless.
The Kawasaki has two battery packs
so one is always charged, meaning I have never run out of power during a job. Setting up even a small household calls for plenty of drilling and screwing, especially since I'm an artist who loves using tools.
Everything stores nicely back in the secure case
for safety and protection. That's important to me because its' studio home tends to disorganization. This case holds each part securely and it's still easy to remove the pieces to use them. That means I have a readymade moving container for my mighty worker for my next move, to a place with a larger studio.

I still have scads of drill sets, including the ones that come inside this drill. But if you don't, a set like this one can be a lifesaver.
My Estwing is the smaller model, but for really big jobs I would use a heavier model. Then the hammer will do more of the work for me. You might like this one too.
You'd be surprised how often a 25' tape comes in handy. Better to get a longer one than to buy a short tape and then need to buy a longer one too.
