Big Bore. Every plumber has a tale about being beat up by his right-angle drill, so any model that improves user safety is worth a look. DeWalt's DWD460 Stud and Joist Drill contains a sensor that reduces power to the motor when the bit binds and jerks — protection that works in high and low speeds. It's also the only drill in its class with a variable-speed trigger for starting big bits slowly. During our testing it proved to be a powerful and safe-feeling performer. We found it online for $339. DeWalt, 888/433-9258.
