Default powering my mill !

Ok so i've got 2 drills for my mill and they're not strong enough to crush at low rpm. Is there a place besides harbor freight where I can get this drill :

I've called them twice to get a shipping quote but still waiting so I'm wondering where I could get such a cheap drill like that

Nope. Amazon has the exact same drill for $100.

Ebay for a used one? Saw one for ~$35....

I work at one of the Harbor freight stores. We don't have that orange drill anymore, this is the new version of it....

I suspect HFT won't ship to Canada. If you'd like, we can work something out where I'll just buy it at the store and walk to the fed-ex store in our parking lot and ship it right to you.

PM me if you're interested

Go Chuckelb! Helping out a fellow HB'er!

Matc - quit your squawking, a canuck just got a nobel. I mean it's not a "real"* one, but it still comes with a good chunk of change.

* my lit friends would kick my butt if the heard me say that... Let me re-phrase, they'd try to kick my butt... errr... give me the stink eye... ok, they'd just look away.
