Just wanted to post an update. Today I ordered the Northern Industrial variable speed one.
I wanted to express my gratitude and thank you all for being such a big help! I am sorry that I couldn't answer each and one of you personally, it would have taken YEARS to do that!
I don't think I could ever get to order the drill if it wasn't for all you sharing your experiences, good and bad.
I KNEW I COULD RELY ON THE PEOPLE IN THIS FORUM!!!
So, again guys, thanks and know that from now on if I EVER have another question, there's nowhere else I will go, but, here!
Thank you from the bottom of my warm heart (or should I say thankS from the heart of my warm bottom?)....
