    What kind of drill?

    I love man toys. However, i often get confused. Is this a hammer drill or a regular drill. What about the different drill bits available?

    BTW, this guy does all of my electricity work around my home.

    Hammer drills normally have a switch to change from hammer action to normal, normal drills don't have it - mine has a little picture of a hammer on the switch - 300 baht from BigC - there's no substitute for quality

    It is a bosch percussion drill with sds drill bits, about 7k baht for a new one, as for nicka and his 300 baht drill, hmmmmmmmm, although I did buy a couple of them and they were great for wood and metal and lasted about 3 months before they had to be thrown away.

    It is a combination drill switchable between normal drill / hammer drill / hammer only.
    Some of them have 2 chucks for an easy switch between standard drills and jack-in drills.
    Bosch also has a couple of jack-in cement hammering tools.

    As a hammer it is not very strong so should only be used for smaller jobs.
    The voices in my head are mostly kind, I also like the music.

    It looks like a Bosch. Not a bad drill but I find that drills that try to function as both are Shite. It has to many revolutions to make a good hammer drill, and the switch were you change it over wears out to fast. If you want a good hammer drill I think hilti makes the best

    hillbilly,
    You know that this level of sophistication may be out of your norm. The use of Bosch or Hilti may be difficult for you to master.

    Here's what I would recommend, if you need to invade a house wall:




    This may, as well, be available in your backyard!

    That drill is one of these:

    I got a cheap one from Big C. The masonry drill bits that came with it were rather special. They lasted just one hole. I kept them just for a laugh:



    (The one on the left is a proper masonry drill bit from a set I bought from Home Pro.)

    My brother in law is a window fitter. He uses a special drill that goes into rock hard Victorian bricks like a hot knife through butter. Lovely bit of kit, but rather expensive. I think it's called a pneumatic drill, but not the road digging type.

    Clarification DD?

    That would be spline shank modell for the american market, sorry they are not cleaned up here as i took the shot in a hurry...
    such piece would easy be over 1000 thb per piece, but you can have it at a 1/10 of a price of a shag...
    If someone wants like large amounts of this we could talk as well...

    if someone needs just a few we will probably send..

    i am in Korat and we have bus service desserving the whole country for few bahts a pack, but if anybody interested in this offer pls go through PM...

    My store guy is on holliday this week, i will try to make some package once he is back and propose you deals, bloody cheap as those parts are taking space and are out of any accounting by now, so you can think when you drill someone shags with the money you send over...
