I have a drill... it's older then I am and belonged to my dad then my grandpa and now me... it is good for wood and things like that. In metal it takes forever and even locks up because it's not exactly the most powerful thing. I went out and bought a Skil drill yesterday... I'm considering taking it back however. I need it to drill through the frame for my brace. I also need it to drill into the body for my antennia and spare tire carrier. I'm not interested in buying a tool because of the brand name because I don't feel the need to spend extra $$$ for the same result. But this is model # 6355-08, 1/2 drill, w/360 assist (a must for me), and 5.0 amps (0-800rpm high torque)... the more I think of it the amp/torque thing has me thinking I need to exchange for something higher... what do you all think? I spent like $50 on this, not much. I have no problem with dropping another $50, but up and beyond that I can't see it for my uses. After I drill those things I might use it for nerfs bars which I need to attach that are sitting in my garage... then that is it for the beast....so um, let me know.... thanks!
