Need a drill, help me pick one?
So after yet another project thwarted by a dead battery, I have decided to replace my cordless drill. It has two batteries, but I don't use it enough for them to hold a charge so they are both dead.
The new drills look so different! I think a lithium battery would work better for my sporadic bursts of DIY motivation. Plus they are lighter. Not the most important thing in deciding, but a plus.
But other than that, what should I look for? Do I need an impact driver? I don't even know what those do.
Most recently I removed all my kitchen cabinets to prepare for demo. I generally do things like put up blinds or curtain rods, replace door hinges, and other small things.
I may decide to tackle some limited drywall repair (large patches where we had a leak), maybe some beadboard with chair rail, maybe some trim. Nothing heavy duty.
One of those "one battery works with many tools" systems might be appealing, but if they are junk, or if most of the attachments are junk, I'm not interested. I'd rather spend more to get decent tools than have a whole system of crappy tools,
Any advice? Half the brands out there now I am not at all familiar with.
