Purchased! - Dewalt Drill - Purchased!

Proposal Type:

Joe Christian

Our current stock of drills are pretty poor performing. I am proposing we buy a new Dewalt Drill with a charger and 2x 4.0Ah batteries. These will complement the dewalt impact driver we already have along with the 3 or 4x 2.0Ah batteries we have (that may be getting a little tired). The batteries will all be interchangable with any dewalt 18v tool.

Proposed Purchase:
I’m proposing we buy this from screwfix, so the hackspace can deal quite easily with any returns that may be required. It’s also the cheapest place as it currently has a sale on.

Proposed Installation:
The drill will be put on the charging podium thing we currently have in the main space. Eventually I would like to make a dedicated drills and charging area, but that would be a proposal for the future.

I will take the bosch drills and their chargers away to be recycled.


Funding type:
Fully funded by Hackspace

Health & Safety
No induction will be required to use this tool. I will update the risk assessment and post it below.

I’ll support. Seems like the cheapest way to get two batteries and a spare charger!

Definitely agree with this, the space needs a few more reliable drills.
My dewalt broke recently so I left the charger and battery at the space to be used, those at least work pretty well

I think this is a great idea Joe. It’s clear that no-one really enjoys using the bosch drills to be honest!
I don’t mind going to grab the drill from Screwfix.
We just need two more people to say I!?

+1 sounds good

Ima try +1 again as it said my post needs to be moderated

I also support this. IIRC the current DeWalt twin set belongs to Ben anyway.

Thanks all, i’ve bought the drill. It will be in the space for the weekend!
