Electric drill
« on: April 07, 2024, 12:00 »
Lots of jobs in the garden I would like to do.  Fix some netting round a post for a climber, just those sort of jobs.  I have seen a cheap drill at On Buy, will thus, or another do the sort of things I want to do ?  Any advice will be excellent.   Thanks,  Mrs Bouquet

Is it a cordless drill, Mrs B ?  They are best and safest for outdoor use.

There are lots of them at On Buy, but this is unchartered territory for me.  Not sure what I need it to be capable of ?   Mrs B

As long as its not anything heavy like drilling into brickwork/concrete etc, a bog standard battery operated drill/driver will probably do the job.

Good features that are fairly common, and worth having/shopping for:
1. Variable speed (reducing speed is beneficial if you are driving screws).
2. Also for screws (removing them), the drill should be reversible.

I had a similar conversation with my son today. I was asking him about a cordless screwdriver and he told me that if you have a drill you can also get screwdriver "bits" that will fit into it and so you can have two powered tools for the price of one.  My problem is that I don't seem to have the strength to get screws either in or out of stuff when I need to. Good luck Mrs B - I hope you get one that's perfect for you,  but I would probably, as has been suggested, go for a cordless one.  I've just learned how to rod a drain if you ever need any advice on that :D.
