DRILLS

Many jobs will only require a simple drill, but having a specialist drill for particular tasks will deliver far more efficient and professional results. A drill with in-built hammer action is a must. Consider corded tools if you're on a budget. However, a cordless drill will offer you the same power but with the flexibility to drill holes wherever you please without the need for annoying extension cables. Easy-to-change chucks make switching between drill-bits quick and easy.
