Best Products: A Cordless Drill

One for the toolbox. You are in your apartment and you want to hang curtains, you want to hang a pot rack, you want to repair a table.... If you want to do almost anything handy, you need a drill. This one tool is arguably the most essential part of the apartment tool kit, and it must be cordless, because worrying about extension cords is just not on.

A good cordless drill is also a very sexy tool to have in one's closet, and we find that most people enjoy the thrill of using one almost as much as a ride on a Harley.

Our cordless of choice has always been a Makita (we like the green color), though others swear by DeWalt. We have bought and liked Black & Decker, but they have not been well rated (price is good). Most cordless work well these days, and for apartment use you certainly don't need to spend a ton of money on a heavy duty model. A lightweight version will do perfectly. MGR
