Lowe's has the Bosch 12-Volt 3/8" cordless drill (PS31-2A) for $99
plus tax. I guess its nationwide.
I want one because it's no doubt much lighter and easier to
control than my 14.4 V DeWalt compact drill. Should do for most
drilling and screwing. I have two of their other 12 V products.
They work well.
BTW... If you already have the batteries, extra batteries can be
used to power a Dremel rotary tool, via wires. No need to chop up
the rotary tool body, you just need a wire and a spare male
battery plug (mine came from their flashlight). Sticking the
battery in my pocket or setting it on the table makes for a light
and nimble cutoff tool. And battery life is better than the stock
Dremel batteries. And they use a real lithium-ion battery charger,
unlike the cheap battery destroying charger that came with my old
Dremel cutoff tool. I like it so far, after significant use. The
rotary tool without the attached battery is easier to control.
