Upgrading my tools

Postby medavidcook » Mon Apr 23, 2018 7:22 pm


I am looking at upgrading my tools, the current tools I have i bought at markets and car boots and they are now starting to break, they are corded (if it matters)
I am looking at getting some cordless tools and been looking at a couple of 6 piece kits.

I know DeWalt are a good brand, but what about Milwaukee

I am looking at these two kits


can anyone let me know their thoughts

Welcome to the forum. Of the two I'd probably go milwaukee as I think they have a better reputation than default. You only get 2 batteries though which isn't great.

The Milwaukee 18v stuff is good. The torque on the drill is enough to break your wrist if the bit jams in the wood.

But the drill chuck on the Milwaukee is useless. Been through two of them. It's the hammer action that screws them up and makes them very difficult to undo.
