Got a new drill

Well I got a new toy for the shop. It is a Milwaukee mag drill. I have a bunch of 1/2 holes to drill and tap. Using this drill and a 1/2 drill tap, this is easy.

Here is a picture

Nice! Drill + tap in one operation would have saved tons of time in my one experience with a mag drill.

I drilled over 100 1/2 threaded holes. It was easy. Only one drill tap was used, and a can of foaming taping spray.
