Oh I like a drill with a clutch feature.


Yup, big diameter holesaws do that all the time in plywood.

I've never actually used one of those lol.

I have used the old milwaukee 120V right angle drill, that used to come in handy for tight places and also had the torque for drilling larger holes.

But now the M12 impact fits in tight places and the M18 battery drill has plenty of torque for anything I need to do.

Just saw the M12 Surge at the Depot [] today. $200 for the kit and they throw in a "free" battery, it comes with two 2.0's already. I was almost going to buy it but I have plenty of M12 batteries that I hardly use so the bare tool is fine. I'll have to order it online.

That's a damn good deal.

$199 for the impact, 3 batteries, and a charger.
$149 for the impact alone.

$50 extra for (3) 2.0 batteries and a charger. I like the 3.0 compact batteries, but for $50 it might be worth it just to have the extra.

I bought it today with the free battery. I was using it for light duty stuff and I can already see it blows away the Gen 1 Fuel impact that I've been using for so many years now. I do like the fact that it's much quieter actually. It seems to have a crazy amount of power for such a small impact. It will definitely suit my needs since I don't drill holes with it.

ki I spoke to majewski very early this am about the surge and he says even the M12 surge blows away the Fuels he has had.

He said the lighter weight even makes it more valuable to him.

I demand you drill some homes to see if it works as well (or better maybe?) than the normal Fuel impact.

I demand that you spend $200 that you probably have in your couch and see for yourself.

Everyone. Screw gun, nail gun, impact gun, etc.

But I understand why it’s so odd to you. Since you’re both Canadian and homosexual, I know that the term “gun“ triggers you. Sorry.

A screw gun is for drywall. A nail gun is for nails. I’m not a gay Canadian but, even if I was, I would know the proper term for an impact driver.

That drill is missing the most important part. The triangle handle coming out the back side. You would need a third arm to hold that bugger steady as she goes.

Is Canadian homosexual slang for “smarter than you”?
