WHICH ROTARY HAMMER DRILL TO BUY?

i personally never really needed a rotary hammer drill until now( iam a carpenter) so i need a heavy duty tool.

the problem with buying off the net is you dont have the feel for the tool, just the specs, i have 2 options and would like your opinions plz

i like how option one comes with drill bits

but for option two i like how its slim and has a higher power output ( which is strange because i always thought that vertical piston was more powerful)

anyone encounter these two tools before?

thanks guys!

Dusty answers:

I do a fair bit of engineering work mainly metal which sometimes need anchoring into concrete. I generally use Hilti products for all of my fixing work. But, in saying this as one of the guys said the Ozito brand that Bunnings sell are surprisingly good. They have plenty of power, reliable and a 3 year warranty and cheap. I could buy 6 Ozito hammer drills for the price of one of my Hilti’s. Would I purchase an Ozito over a Hilti, I have. But in saying this it is nice to have quality gear too. Good luck.

Tradesmen/women: 1) What’s your favourite tool + why? 2) Any funny stories about…?

…your tools etc?
This is for part of a uni project so would be grateful for any information that anyone could provide. Just some details on your professional tools would be great as well. This applies to any builders, plumbers, electricians, brickies, carpenters… anyone really. Thanks in advance for any help =)

Dusty answers:

Without question, my cordless screwdriver. I am a widow and this tool has been a god send. I have learned to do many things which I didn’t think I was capable of but with my trusty screwdriver I, at times, amaze myself at what I can fix. I think it should be a law, no woman should ever be without one.

Ken asks…

What should I build ???

I have a large 25×25′ room off the back of my house not being used. I want to make something but what? And I got to make some money on whatever I do. I have carpenters and auto mechanics tools. What can I make with my hands and feed myself to ???

Dusty answers:

Maybe a storage place, or if you get kids it could be a playplace for them, mine sure do love those kind of things! OR a mini office, or whatever you need for your house.

Your Questions About Carpenter Tools



David asks…

I’m power tool shopping, need advice?

Triton brand, how are they? I am at the point of being a poor carpenter wannabee. I like wood working and I need a good miter saw, I saw a Triton on amazon for three hundred shipped with the laser sliding the works. is triton a good brand or should I stick with the dewalt for another $100?

Any good places to get inexpensive power tools that will last a long time would be great as well.

Dusty answers:

There are times to save money and times to spend. Buying a miter saw is the time to spend.

No point cutting corners on the device you’ll be make corners with.
The miter saw is the workhorse of th shop and needs to be solid dead nuts on, with each cut. Saving money sounds good but you need to think value. Once you loose confidence that a 90 degree cut will be 90 degrees your hate your saw.

I simply could not make a purchase for this type touching it – knowing how hard it lock at it presets and how many presets it has. I Would also look at accessory items and their cost as these can get pricey.
Lastly Never buy tool that says “professional grade”

I own a 10″ Makita compound and couldn’t be happier. I used it to build 7rl hundred pieces of furniture over the past few years. I think I paid 520 ish for it.

Lizzie asks…

Bringing culture to the masses isn’t a job?

Louis Hamilton demands that his racing car is in top condition.
A carpenter makes sure that his chisels and saws are sharp.
A fisherman insists that his trawler is seaworthy.
Why am I castigated as an actress for worrying about my face, figure and voice? They are my tools of work.

Dusty answers:

Because people might think you are vain. But that is a very good way of putting it, since it is usually one-sided. Good persuasive writing!

Donald asks…

If Jesus came from a place whose technology far exceeds today’s technology,,.?

,..then why is it, being a carpenter, he couldn’t have built homes and buildings better than Bob Villa? Why didn’t he ever mention tools like a staple gun or a power saw? If Jesus came from a world that exceeds this world in technology, then surely Jesus would’ve at least mentioned things like hoover cars and electricty and power tools.
and MP3 players, and ray guns, and supercomputer, etc….

Dusty answers:

Maybe god told him to keep it secret….

Dusty answers:

I’ve owned an older version of the Milwaukee. New, it was great – lighter than the Hitachi it replaced and ‘just-right’ in the torque department. But, similar to a handful of other Milwaukee drills I’ve gone through, the armature barely made it to its 2nd birthday before sparks were flyin’. When I retired the Milwaukee I picked up a Bosch and have been happy ever since.

P.S. To hear that there are still some carpenters working made my day. Thx.
