    Anyone Used this Drill ?

    Has anyone ever used this drill to sand on the lathe or doing anything? I have always had good luck with Dewalt!

    I'm tempted to drill for more information but want to avoid being abrasive.

    Mike, whatever drill you get, I suggest getting one with a cord, and not a battery-powered one.

    I am in accord.

    $139.99 w/free shipping on Amazon, but hurry only one left! And I agree about battery-powered tools. They are very nice and convenient, but until they get the batteries down to a reasonable price, I'm back to pulling power cords around.

    The complete right angle can be a problem sometimes. I have a right angle and a Hummingbird [ http://www.milwaukeetool.com/power-tools/corded/0370-20 ] Both have their place.

    That's a great drill, but I'd check it in person to get a feel for how heavy and bulky it is. Using a heavy sander can get tiring pretty quickly. I know this from having the Metabo 3 1/8" ROS. Also, I suspect it might be more drill than you really need for lathe sanding. Personally, I'd buy a cheaper one and spend the extra $100 on something else for the shop.

    [Edit to add...]

    Never mind. I just noticed the drill you linked to is not a variable speed drill. You'll definitely need variable speed for sanding on a lathe.

    I looked at it a few years ago. The garage I worked at, had an OLD right angle drill, that from memory I think was a B&D. (guessing from the 70's, found the same model on Ebay, researching this) It was used for drilling out broken bolts and mostly (thankfully) for gasket removal. Your listed model was one of two I was looking at, when I found one being closed out:

    I bought the Blue Point for around $57 shipped and the first use turned out to be drilling for electrical work in my parents basement. (contractor forgot his and my dad had asked)
    There is a Makita that is closer to the B&D we had. After having one, they are on my must have list if doing remodeling of any kind, as well as vehicle work. (I can take a generator out on my brothers farm where I would have no air for tools)
