That would be the reason i have a bad left wrist! Ive wired 5 houses with an older milwaukee right angle magnum drill- it nearly broke my wrist! If you ever use ship auger bits- be sure to buy the ones that will adctualy go threw nails!

(I bought that one in the pic a week ago------------)

the big hole saws, and the large ship sugers have much in common, especially when cutting metal

Milwaukee 3/8" hand drills. Arr, that takes me back to the two years that I worked in the shipyard as a Marine Electrician. The Milwaukee's were TOUGH. I dropped them accidently 8 feet to the steel or aluminum deck many times. Not a whimper and we used them only to drill aluminum or steel. 1/2" bit with a turned down to 3/8" arbor? No sweat, on aluminum. Parts of the frigates that we built were made of High 80 steel. High 80 steel does not wish to be drilled. Even an air-powered 1" drill requires a LOT of time and a LOT of cutting oil. Slipping and sliding below the water line in a ship heeled 15 degrees. Those were the days!

Last time I checked, you could buy one for ~$95, but they don't look like the ones we used in the shipyard. Cordless? You must be joking. Indeed, you had to be ready for serious torque on the wrist. Sometimes, two hands on the drill's handle was a very good idea.

I am also buying a milwaukee 1/2inch corded hand drill- there about $99---- but im afraid the one in the Pic -retails for around $229- + for 18nch ship auger 1/2-3/4-5/8-1/4 is about $300 total------
Ive wired 5 houses using an older milwaukee- so thats why i bought another :-)

Just bought me a 3" hole saw for my Black and Decker drill. Corded. A fat belly comes in handy for some work, as you can keep one hand on the drill, one hand on the handle, and brace it against your fat belly, and lean on it! Plenty of pressure behind the drill. I've actually stopped some industrial drills back when I was welding. God, that was fun!

A 4" angle grinder with some tiger paw wheel, grinding wheels and a stone would be very useful. But for now I'll have to make due with my dremel.
