Iggy the Trained Shop Monkey is swinging from the rafters this week – appreciating the dexterity of his tail. While hanging from the lumber rack, he got an idea for this week’s entry and it involves a tool with a tail!
- You never have to wait for batteries to recharge. Unless you plan on woodworking in some out-of-the-way location or during a blackout, there’s always plenty of power available to you.
- Corded drills typically spin at much higher rates that cordless models. Higher speed is a good thing for drilling pocket screws, doweling, mortising and other shop tasks.
- You can use the cord as part of an elaborate booby trap should someone try to break into your shop after hours.
- High quality corded drills sell for much less than high quality cordless models. That leaves you more money to spend on a kick-butt set of forstner bits.
- Corded models can be lighter than cordless NiCad powered drills. After drilling all day, your shoulders and arms will thank you.
