Yeah, no shit. I had looked a couple years ago and was finding the cheap china ones for like $400. I ended up with an old school milwalkee with a jacobs chuck of craigslist for $300 which seemed like a score at the time even though it had the jacobs (which all the old ones seem to).Are you kidding me!? I will be looking in to this!
Yes to all of the above. Used when a true hole is needed (vs. the walking or un-preciseness of a hand drill won't fly) and the part can't fit in the mill or drill press. Or if you are drilling on an already built part or structure.Quick question... What would this be used for over a hand drill or drill press? Would this be used for larger metal pieces where you need to drill a hole in the center (Cant fit on drill press) and don't want to hand drill it?
