    "Witch" = a magician, sometimes considered malevolent, usually depicted as being female.

    "Which" = a pronoun denoting an option of one item or another

    What's the difference between a 1/2" vs. 3/8" chuck - 1/8" In some cases that really is the entire difference. With pro-level tools, you can expect either to be plenty durable, but the 1/2" will most likely be more powerful, have more internal bracing against deformation, and better cooling.

    As to which one is a better tool, DeWalt will certainly be the better tool...but you have to want it. Expect the DeWalt to cost at least twice as much as a B&D of the same capacity. And don't expect the B&D to hold up very long if you intend to use it at a professional level. You cannot wrangle commercial work out of a consumer-grade tool, just forget that right now.

    One exception: B&DI - Black & Decker Industrial power tools were seriously heavy duty gear. Easily as robust as anything DeWalt was generating at the time - and probably far superior to them in the larger items - B&DI tools were a perfectly safe investment if you wanted to use power tools in a commercial setting. However I haven't seen them since the 1990's and if you found any for sale now, they've probably been used to death by somebody who really got his money's worth out of them.

    They both belong in the same company Stanley Black & Decker

    BQ 1/8 The chucks will only accept drill bits/etc with a diameter of 1/2-3/8 respectively

    The De Walt Company has the most reputation for manufacturing high quality battery drills & electric capable of giving good reliability for business & home use. However it depends for what you using that drill. Since De Walt is excellent but is also expensive, the Black & Decker is fine for occasional home projects and cheaper. What ever is your choice, I will recommend 18 DC volts or higher if you are going to drive screws like building a deck, floor, walls etc. Good luck...!

    As already mentioned, DeWalt is a subsidiary of Stanley Black and Deck, so...it's really not like you're going to be getting something from somebody unrelated.

    Technically DeWalt is B&D's high-end professional line, but without knowing your usage level, it's hard to advise you to try it or not.

    == if you see that you might be using a drill into concrete then you can get a combo DeW that will do both drill and hammer drill ... the 1/2inch chuck is in front of a tough center shaft and is the better choice for all projects ......DeWalt is the best of your selections ... I like SEARS tools for durability and price ...

    I prefer DeWalt.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0052MIHMO/ref=as...

    +++ THE PROS +++

    [+ UTILIZES LI-ION TECH]: Li-Ion offers more power in a smaller/lighter package, vs. NiCad and NiMH.

    [+ LED GUIDE LIGHT]: Positioned above the trigger. Turns on when you pull the trigger and auto-off after 20-seconds of non-use

    [+ 2-SPEED MOTOR]: High speed (up to 2,000rpm) for drilling, Low/Variable speed (up to 600rpm) with clutch for driving

    [+ LIGHT WEIGHT]: The 1.5A batteries weigh 12oz each. With battery inserted the total drill weight is 3.5lbs

    [+ 2 X 1.5A BATTERIES]: With each 1.5A battery capable of providing several hours of runtime, you're not actually giving up much runtime at all to have a lighter drill (vs. having a single 3.0A battery). That, in combination with the quick-charger being able to charge a battery faster than it takes to drain one...You could actually keep working with the drill on-stop, perpetually.

    [+ DUAL VOLTAGE QUICK CHARGER]: Charges a battery in 30min and if you happen to also use Dewalts' 12V MAX line, this charger will charge those batteries as well.

    [+ INCLUDES HEAVY-DUTY CARRY CASE]: With the included belt-clip, the drill could just as easily be a part of your tool belt or be in your tool box/chest. But if you like having a place for everything and everything in its' place, then the included case keeps your 20v kit together nicely and should be strong enough for the job site

    --- THE CONS ---

    [ - ACTUALLY 18V SYSTEM]: At full charge and checked with no load, you get the 20V reading. The actual in-use voltage is 18V. But so as to not confuse this new line with their other 18V lines that don't use Li-Ion, Dewalt calls these the 20V "MAX" system. So you'll need to remove the voltage difference, when doing comparison shopping, to other 18V systems.
