With all of its versatility, the power drill is an essential part of your tool collection. From installing new cabinet hardware to constructing an outdoor deck, the power drill is helpful for home improvement projects of all sizes. At Ace you will find a wide selection of portable drills perfect for the project at hand.

Power hand drills are one of the most frequently used tools in and outside the home. It is important that the hand drill you choose comfortably fits your grip and allows for easy usage. Sometimes, the most powerful drill may not be the best choice if its size and shape make it difficult for you to complete your project. Keep in mind how often you plan to use your drill, what you will use it for and what materials (wood, metal, concrete) you will be using it on. Different materials require different speeds; if you plan to work with several materials, a variable speed drill is ideal for you.

Chuck size is also an important feature of a power drill. The chuck size indicates the diameter of the drill bit shaft and accessories that will be used within the drill. Drills are available in 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" chuck sizes. Quarter-inch and 3/8" are typically used for household projects while 1/2" drills are more common for commercial use. Chucks can be adjusted using one of two mechanisms, either keyless -- by-hand, or keyed – requiring a small tool, or key, to tighten around the drill bit shaft.

A power drill can help you complete your next project with less effort. Ace carries a wide variety of drills from your favorite brands. For more information check out our guide to choosing a portable drill.
