Which hand drill does a woodworker need? The requirements are so varied that basically, many different models could or should be considered. Good enough quality to provide consistent, wobble- and vibration-free drilling, and enough power to drill 40 mm holes without stressing the motor, should be considered basic criteria for most applications. In addition, portability and ease of use should also be given attention.
We have decided to add a hand drill from DUSS into our line of tools, because it easily meets these criteria. It is a quality tool built with the professional in mind. The sturdy build makes it a bit heavier than some comparable models. The 43 mm EUR standard neck allows it to be mounted on a drilling stand, and so can be used to do effective and exact work. The DUSS hand drill is made in Germany.
The hand drills we sell are intended for the German market. If you want to use them outside Germany please read this note for use of our hand drills outside Germany
