CMT Industrial 10529A reviews

Don't buy this
The drill only looks like it would work but does not. It spins like any other drill but when you put it up against a stud to drill the chuck does not spin. The motor sounds fine but the mechnical parts inside the drill do not spin under pressure. Save your money and do not buy this drill!

Satisfied
I was helped by other reviews online to purchase this drill for a onetime use. Sure, I'll use it again sometime. It works well for drilling in small spaces.

Cheap and does the trick
I need to drill in tight quarters very rarely - maybe once a year or so. So I didn't want to spend a lot, but I also wanted something that wouldn't break the first time I used it. Given that, this drill was perfect. It easily drilled a couple of dozen deep holes in very hard chestnut. It had enough power and felt medium-quality in the build. Plenty good enough for the price.

OK, BUT!!!
Delivery prompt, product is as advertised. It is identical except for case color to one I bought from Klingspor about 2 yre. ago. It failed internally. I really don't expect more than 18 mo. to two years of service from it. I think the first is repairable buy since the mfg. is China there is no source for parts that I know of. At it's price I can buy one every two years and still get 10-12 years of service versus a "name" brand. Bottom line is don't expect it to last more than 2 years as a moderate user. For example I use mine 1-2 times per month. Not very good is it?

Not Functional
I bought this thinking "what a good buy."
When unpacked from the box and triggered on, it went for approximately 2 seconds before self-destructing in a cloud of ozone.
Not so good.

Great Performance
Totally satisfied with the value of this tool. I do a lot of sanding and polishing with 3 inch disc and I have hundreds of hours on this thing already and no problems. I do use it to drill holes from time to time and that is no problem at all. It also has a lot of torque and that is handy at low speeds. It is a little heavy compared to an air polisher so my wrist had to build itself up to handle it but it does the same job and don't blow out air compressors and does it with a lot less energy. It makes some funny gear noises when running but I haven't seen any problem from that, I have had right angle grinders that had that noise, probably has a worm gear like a grinder.

Junk
It worked well for a week. Then the switch stopped working. It did not shut off. After releasing the switch the motor continued to growl. It was not longer possible to change from forward to reverse or visa-vera. It is junk. Do not buy this thing if you plan to use it more than once!

Great tool for hard to reach places. High Quality
I had a project to work on my boat that required drilling in tight spots. I purchased the Neiko 3/8" close quarters drill hoping it would do the trick. I was very pleased when I received the drill from Amazon. The weight showed the quality of the product. I cannot believe the torque this drill has. The paddle switch is easy to operate and the variable speed makes it very versatile. The price is very reasonable. The nice feature is this drill can also be used in many other applications and not just tight spots.

close quarter drill
This seems like a very good drill for the price. It's a little bulky, but works good. I can get is some darn tight places with this.

great drill for the price
The drill has a lot of power but is a little bulky. It could be redisigned, however, for the price you just can't beat it. If you use a right angle drill all day long then perhaps you should upgrade. However, if you are like me and use it infrequently, but still need a right angle drill for the occasional jobs, this is the drill.

GREAT BUY
GREAT BUY FOR THE MONEY. YOU CAN AFFORD THREE OR FOUR COMPARED TO AN EXPENSIVE DRILL. I USE IT FOR SANDING ON THE LATHE. BURNED OUT ONE ALREADY AND ORDERED A REPLACEMENT. CANT BEAT THE PRICE.

I bought this drill in July 2008, I literally used it to drill approx 18, 1/2in holes. Then the gear stripped out. When I contacted the company, within one year of purchase, I received no response. Needless to say I will not do business with this company or refer this product to even the novice, save your money and buy a better drill. I found a refurbished Dewalt for around $100. Pay a little more and you'll be happier in the long run.
