    when do you use a 3/8ths corded drill?

    And what brand do you prefer? I have 2, A quantum pro black and decker, and an old Sears Industrial. Bought new,I believe I paid 25 dollars each on clearance. I use them very little anymore, since I have a drywall gun for drywall, a 1/2 inch drill for most drilling, a few cordless drills...
    Are you guys shelving yours as well? When do you find these tools usefull?

    Please try inserting the shank end of twist drills into the pilot pin holes of the chuck on the Craftsman and then post the size that fits. I bet I can look up which chuck key(s) should fit that chuck.

    Thanks Woussko..That drill is old, the variable is now iffy till fully on the brushes are shot too and besides its another drill I never much liked..for a3/8 its huge and way over powered.Its only used to stir paint and looks it from a long time of only stirring paint.Maybe when it finally dies I'll bury it and plant a flower on top lol.
    Thanks for the offer guy

    LOL Agreed but for a few dozen holes a year its fine.I don't really like it either.Its doubtful I'll ever wear it out at the rate I need a tight quarters drill.I had tried the milwaukee long ago and didn't like it either.This was cheap at the time I bought it

    I must admit, that since I started using that, my 18 volt stuff is pretty much collecting dust. I cant say enough about that drill and driver and the flashlight is great too.

    Man, you guys got me thinking on Drills.

    I got the following:
    1. Dewalt 3/8 corded (New, still in box, never opened) Dont know why??
    2. Ridgid 3/8 corded (used a few times) bought it the same day as the dewalt with intentions of returning the one I did not like, but never tried out the dewalt
    3. Milwaukee - Hole Hawg, big right angle beast.
    4. Milwaukee - 1/2 in hammer drill
    5. Dewalt 18 volt cordless
    6. Two makita 14.4 volt cordless sets with the impact and flashlight( One set is new and never opened) Bought two at same time to give one as birthday present to my brother, only to find out he already bought one before.
    7. Craftsman 1/2 inch very old. housing appears to be stainless steel with a "D" handle, weighs a ton and will try to kill you if it stalls.
    I do find myself using a corded drill quite often depending on the project and where I am at.

    Regards,

    Maybe this will help someone looking for a chuck key.

    Send it to "The Drill Doctor" and be rid of the POC keyless chuck. My bet is you have a replacement around in your collection of good junk. Left = 6408 / Right = 6407 ... Same drill but different chucks. The 6407 has an El Cheepo keyed chuck but The Drill Doctor can install a good keyed chuck on it. Maybe a Jacobs semi industrial or a Rohm from Germany.

    6408. I thought it was 490 and some other number. Looked at the drill 6408. Only bad thing is the crummy keyless chuck!!!

    Akita, Which model drill is it really? They don't make a 490x.
