    I observed a mention of Dewalt and Black & Decker drills in one of the threads here, but did you know that they were made at the same company in Spennymoor, Co.Durham, England?

    Anyway, I would like to put up blinds on a regular basis and would need a cordless hammer drill myself.
    What can you recommend for about £100 ?

    I have a 14.4v Dewalt for over 7 years. I have absolutely hammered it, excuse the pun and it point blankly refuses to die, it has had new batteries but that is to be expected. It is used for security installation work so it has not had an easy life either. It has surpassed all me expectations. I have a 24v Bosch SDS and that has been pretty amazing too.

    Hilti are very good drills.

    I would not buy a combination drill without a metal chuck though.
