    Maybe his is like mine where they randomly stopped doing counter sales. They found the only edge a brick and mortar has over the internet and used it to hang themselves. Wtf?

    I bought a drill from McMaster and Regal is what arrived. It cut very well and was reasonably priced. If their taps are as good I'd certainly not scoff at them.

    10/14 or 8/12 vari-pitch blade. You'll sacrifice cut speed for durability and variety of materials you can cut.

    I use sawblade.com and like them a lot, the Q601 series.
