There are many power tools suited to many different types of projects, and drills have plenty of variations to choose from. Knowing what your choices are and how they’re useful for your projects, can help you decide which are worth investing in to make your work go smoothly and efficiently. In some cases, you’ll be able to get away with just having one, such as the basic drill driver. However, sometimes you’ll want other options to round out your tools and keep your work flowing. So, which drill is right for you?
This is the most common type of drill that you can use for many different applications. Simply insert a bit and let the drill do its work. This is a simple tool with a lot of variability that should be in every toolkit whether you’re a woodworker, a metal worker, or even just a general hobbyist. It will do a lot of basic jobs very quickly, maintaining an efficient workspace and making every project a little bit easier to accomplish.
A hammer drill can do the same thing a drill driver does, and more! This kind of drill is generally fashioned the same as a basic drill driver, but it comes with the added functionality of a hammer mechanism that can push and pull the drill bit to assist in getting through tougher material, such as concrete. A quality hammer drill, such as the Festool Rotary Hammer BHC 18, will make quick work of many projects and give you the option to tackle different materials that require some extra oomph from your power tools.
As you might suspect, these tools are useful mainly if you need to work with drywall. Installing drywall is a specialized process that can easily be mishandled if it’s being installed by someone without experience or the right tools. While you are able to install drywall with a basic drill driver, the speed has to be carefully monitored in order to do it correctly. With a drywall screwdriver, such as the Festool Cordless Screw Gun DWC 18, the tool takes control and ensures that screws can be installed properly so to avoid rupturing the drywall.
