A Gold Box for the DIYers

Today’s Amazon Gold Box holds a hefty deal for those of you who like to do your own work around the house—they’ve got a Bosch 12-Volt Lithium-Ion 3/8-Inch Drill/Driver with 2 L-BOXX cases available for just $94 shipped (less than half the usual price, and their lowest price ever).

My renovation skills are limited to painting, caulking, and colorful swearing while taking down wallpaper, so I turned to my own personal tool-guy to find out if this was, indeed, a good deal. He says: “12V is fine for a light-duty kit, and Bosch is a good name and the lithium batteries are good. That box arrangement is kind of cool, too.” Then I asked him what his drill voltage is and he said 18V, though we were conversing over IM so I cannot confirm that he puffed up his chest a little when he said it.

I think if you’re not building a house from scratch this is a decent drill at a great price for what you get.

    If you’re looking to up your macho and go for the 18v, Woot has one today. Of course, it’s Ridgid instead of Bosch, and it’s a refurb, but hey — 18 Volts!
