post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey, I'm limited to Walmart due to a having a huge gift card there.

What would be a good drill and tool set from there do you guys think? I've goon long enough trying to do stuff with just my dermal lol.

I'm deciding between these:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Black-Deck...y-Kit/10780279

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Black-and-...ndingMethod=rr

and then probably get this:

Well it depends on what you want to do with it, personally i would go with the 18v kit. I have had the 12v and it didn't have the strength to keep up with home projects.

Agree. I wouldn't get anything under 14v but would recommend the 18v for more power.

If you're going cordless get the 18V. A couple things to keep in mind though with battery operated tools. NiCad batteries will self discharge over time so if you haven't used the drill for a month or so you will have to recharge it before you can use it. Also if you don't use it for a few months (say 6 months or more) the battery can go flat and will stop holding a charge at all. This is not an issue with LiIon batteries but its something to keep in mind with NiCads. Also you will eventually have to buy new batteries, thats just the nature of battery operated tools. So price out the replacement batteries.

The above 18V kit you linked is OK though it only comes with one battery. So when the battery drains down you'll have to wait an hour while it recharges before you can use the tool again.

I know everyone thinks "I'll get a battery operated drill" these days (I run the hardware department at Home Depot) but don't over look corded drills. A corded drill is less expensive for more power, ready to go when you need it (no waiting for the battery to charge), will run all day long and you don't have to spend $40-100 on a new battery every few years.

Exactly my thoughts. I received one of the nicer cordless black and decker drills as a gift a few years ago. The batteries (I had 2 of them) never even held enough charge between the 2 of them to do more than 20 minutes work. The batteries stopped working altogether within about a year and a half. The drill never even had enough power at full charge to drill through tough stuff like hardwood or thick steel. It could cut them but you had to go easy on the pressure. It would bog down if you pushed hard...

Back when the drill was new my friend moved into a new apartment and wanted to install drapes over all her windows. I charged up both batteries overnight knowing I would use them the next day. Between both batteries there was not enough juice to install 3 sets of drapes. It probably only involved drilling about 18 holes and setting in 18 screws. That was my first of many major disappointments in the cordless drill.

I bought a nice $100 corded Dewalt drill and have never even thought about the cordless drill since. The cordless isjust rusting away in a box in the back of a closet somewhere. Corded drills are a million times better in my opinion. Cordless is only nice if you are working in tight spaces or moving around a lot. Personally I would rather deal with the inconvenience of a extension cord than use a cordless. The power of a corded drill is unmatched.

Back on topic, I know you are asking about walmart drills but really would not get one from walmart if I was you. I perused their power tools online and found nothing that interested me.

My favorite power tool brands are Dewalt, Makita, and Milwaukee. Virtually everything they make is awesome. I don't think walmart sells any of those brands...

I've used cordless drills for many years, never even bothered with a corded one until recently. I got some cheap-o corded Ryobi drill from Home Depot, I couldn't be happier. Now I work for hours on end. If you have to have portability definetly get the 18v, you never know when a heavy duty job is going to require more torque.

I'm looking for cordless specifically because I'll be using it for case mods, as well as for when I build a deck. Would you guys think dropping the kit and getting a 18v LiIon Battery and drill?

Battery life is well extended and lots quicker to charge, plus if they have a good drill, with settings on the chuck, plus the trigger being rpm controled to your touch will make you very happy over the rest. By the way, those batteies will last for years, as long as you dont abuse them, drop-crack, thoses things And if you have any pawn shops in the area, just check them once in awhile-you will be able to pick up extra batteries for like 1/2 the price, prob even with a second drill.

Oh just fyi, i know my tools well, been a master carpenter for years, just to say-if they have a better brand at your walmart store, buy it insted of b&d.

I found this one at walmart. I think it's the only LiIon 18v they have.
