More than enough speed, more than enough torque - THE BEST

i;ve owned and used several corded drills over my career, but this is the best balanced drill I've seen.  There is plenty of power and speed to safely drill any type of material and more than enough torque.  I love the built in belt hook which frees up my hands for climbing up a ladder.

Chinese Craftsman Drill is a Disappointment

My disappointments:

1. The drill speed lock switch is WORTHLESS. It only locks on at full speed (yeah good luck at planting that drill bit on wood or metal at 2500 rpm, your bit will wander everywhere)! All the other Craftsman drills I have are 15-25 years old, made in the U.S.A., and have the turn knob in the trigger switch that allows the user to infinitely adjust the lock on speed to any rpm. Even my cheap $12 drill has this feature.

2. The so-called level is out of calibration. Not even close. You can check for square by puttin a builders level up to the chuck (bit holder) face at 90 degrees. The drill I received drills at an upwards angle when it says it's level.

3. It's made in CHINA. It's the first Craftsman drill I ever bought that was not made in the USA. Bummer! If I wanted a Chinese made drill, I would have gone to one of Craftsman's competitors. The 2 plastic body halves are of different red colors! What's up with that ?

4. 2500 rpm ? Who needs 2500 rpm ? 1500 rpm max is all you'll ever need. I'd rather have this 6.5 amp drill max out at 1500 rpm and deliver more usable torque. That's what every driller wants, is that twisting power when using their drill as a screwdriver. 2500 rpm Generates too much heat, especially in metals. Good drill for smoking and destroying your bits. My other 3/8's drills max out at 1200 rpm, while my 1/2 inch drills max out at 550 and 800 rpm. A good quality bit takes all the work off the drill. Use good quality bits and give the bit time to sink into the hole. It needs time to cut and drop into the hole. Cheap quality bits just burn out your drill quickly. By pushing and forcing the bit, you not only destroy the bit, but burn out the bearings and destroy the drill too. Always use low speeds and oil on metals! Have fun.

5. Forget the case. Keep it in a 5 gallon bucket with your bits and a 15-25 ft extension cord. You'll save time and use it more.

6. Power Indicator ? If you're so dumb or blind that you can't remember that you have it plugged in or can't see that it's plugged in, then you're not qualified to use a power tool and should not be drilling.

My Likes:

1. Red Color. I can find it quickly

2. 10 ft. Cuts down on the need of dragging out an extension cord.

3. Keyless chuck. If a 1/16 inch bit slips, wrap a little tape around it or something else. Or unlock the chuck and re-align the bit. But you may have a defective chuck.

Awkward and too fast

I've had this for almost two years (received as a gift) and while it works fine, I have two problems with it: - 2,500 RPM is unnecessary. Far too fast and tough to remain accurate when this thing is spinning out of control. The lock button to keep the drill spinning only works at max speed, making it useless. - This is really front heavy and awkward to handle. There is no balance to this thing like my other drill, which has some weight in the front and the rear. I continuously get blisters using this, even with gloves. This drill runs fine, but I can't recommend it based on my experience.

what i needed

My father in law gave me a Sears drill about 40 yrs. ago that had lots of use. When the chuck and cord finally needed replacement I wanted the current version. I like a corded drill and this new drill will hopefully serve me as well as the old one did

I would recommend this product to a friend.

no battery to go dead!

I am so sick of cordless drills that have the battery go bad, so I bought this. Love that it is fairly lightweight and the cord has been long enough to do all the jobs I needed it for!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good lightweight drill

I learned several years ago while drilling a hole into brick that a corded drill is a necessity. Some projects are beyond the ability of rechargeable drills to handle. Since I don't need a drill all the time, I wanted one with a case to make it easy to store. I also wanted one with ample power. This drill meets all my requirements except for one, I prefer a Jacobs keyed chuck. However, Sears doesn't offer this option except for a Hammer drill which was not what I wanted. For what it is, I believe this drill is a good value.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
