Summary: This Makita is the best variable speed drill my husband has ever owned. I bought it for him on eBay because you can no longer find this model in retail stores. He used one in the past on a car restoration project and just loved it! The best feature of this Makita is that you can set the speed exactly where you want it at the trigger. Other variable speed drills require you to maintain the speed by continually pressing on the trigger, using just the right amount of force.
