Dual–Laser Drill


Two lasers, two built–in levels, a "live tool" indicator light: that's a lot of technology for $69.95.

But wait: there's more.

It's also a 3/8" variable–speed electric drill with a lock–on button and sleeveless chuck and it's a Craftsman tool from Sears so you know it's gonna last.

They've tricked–out this puppy with laser beams that extend horizontally and vertically from the bit so your holes line up.



No, it won't count how many holes are in the Albert Hall — at least, not this iteration.

Maybe Version 2.0. But I digress.

Two levels — 1 for each axis (x and y) — keep things in line.

$69.95 here.

"can this drill make holes in granite marble" - yes, but slowly.

For serious drilling in masonry or concrete you need an SDS drill, but I wouldn't use one on thin stuff, it'd just smash it. If it's a thin veneer of marble you'll need a diamond bit and use it without hammer action.
pick a size!

SDS is the only tool that'll touch the concrete walls in this house. Everything else just skitters away.

is the sort of thing. The cheap models are fine for domestic use - it's not as if you need to drill several holes an hour for several years with one - not in the same house, anyway.

And if Craftsman tools don't last, you can always take 'em back for a replacement. We did that for a long time.
