    Actually this was a month or so ago, but I used it for the first time today.

    I have or rather had two Metabo BE622 drills, both of which are about twelve years old and have been used and abused on an almost daily basis. The gearbox on one of them finally gave up, so the hunt was on to find a replacement. When I eventually found a NOS BE622 and ordered it up, it arrived with two chucks. I was more than happy with that, as I have wanted a good quality angle chuck for a long time. Using the drill today has made me realize just how worn out and noisy that the remaining old drill is, and how it is probably on borrowed time as well.

    Well it wasn't a tool that I purchased but more of a tool storage solution! Picked up both the 6 drawer cabinet and chest;

    Halfords | Workshop Storage | Toolboxes | Metal Cabinet for Tool Storage

    Does that count?!

    A crappy cheap B&Q bench grinder. Exactly the same as the last one that the switch packed up on after very little use. Still It got my first commission in the forge finished, and now I can keep an eye open for a nice old cast iron one with a bit more style...

    A cheap corded drill from B&Q.

    My cordless drill has given up the ghost. The batteries only hold their charge for about 5 minutes and any drilling into concrete with it will drain the batteries in seconds

    So needed some power to drill into some concrete posts and other household stuff. Works a treat and compared to my old drill, thinks concrete is made of cheese.

    Happy days D:



    Got a corded one as don;t use a drill that much and if I do it is virtually always in the house and I didn't have the money to spend loads on a nice new expensive shiny drill

    You generally have to spend a fair old amount to get even a half decent cordless drill for masonry. I think given the circumstances you describe that you did the best thing.

    I have both but if I'm doing a lot of drilling the corded drill is by far the best.
    Just a few small diameter holes and its a pain setting up all the 110 volt gear so I use cordless.

    Used it a few times now and I'm happy with it. Cheap but handy to have and actually can now drill into masonary, unlike the previous drill looking at it and crying
