Dewalt Drills – Dewalt offers a lot of drill sizes ranging from 3/8″ to 1/2″ chuck size and amp ranging from 5 to 7.8. For use around the house the 1/2 will be more than enough as most of the time you will not use a 1/2″ bit. Dewalt makes a nice keyless chuck (Jacobs-keyless). Usually when you get into a bigger drill they come in keyed chuck because of the power. Dewalt drills have an extra lock feature on the chuck that prevents any slipping of the bit.
