I'm in the market to buy a new 1/2" electric drill for drilling 2" mortises using an 18" x 2" ship auger bit (my search for 2" boring machines is not panning out). I am thinking a drill in the 400-500 rpm would be about righnt for such a large-sized auger bit. I see two distinct types of drills: a D-handle and the so-called spade handle. I am thinking the spade-type drills would be better for holding against the torque while sitting on the timber. I see both Milwaukee and Makita have some nice spade drills in the $300-400 CDN market. The Milwaukee has a nice 12" long pipe handle which seems nice.Any suggestions of drill type/brands?
Brian_Weekley: great looking drilling jig... I really like that setup. More information on the build?
I have one that some day going to get the best of me... 1" chuck. (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
