Recommendation for Close Quarter Stud Drilling...

This question is from 3/8 in. 1300 RPM Close Quarter Drill
Asked by

Read all my Q&A
July 3, 2016
The old 0375 Close Quarters drill was wonderful for drilling studs with spade bits. It had enough muscle to power through the wood, but not so much that you risked hurting yourself if the bit jammed. Clearly that drill wasn't really designed for years of 1" spade bit abuse, but it was so good at it!

From comments here, it looks like the new Close Quarters drill has less power. That might be a strategic decision to keep people (like me) from abusing the drill, since it no longer has enough power for this task.

Can Milwaukee recommend an alternative tool? The Hole Hawg obviously works, but it is heavy and often doesn't fit where we need to drill. Perhaps Milwaukee would consider designing a Close Quarters drill with super heavy duty gearing, and power like the 0375 in the future...

Answer: 
Thanks for your feedback. We don't have a tool comparable to the 0375 at this time. But we do have an M18™ Right Angle drill Model 2615-21 that should perform all applications you're describing.

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Use for sanding fine wood work I have used this product for years. Glad Home Depot carries it. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Drill I bought this for sanding my wood turnings, it did not last long with all the dust, had to change the bearings, when I called support to complain they asked what I was using this Drill for & I told them SANDING!, the support person told me right away that this is a drill, not a sander... he is right, I should not be complaining about problems caused by doing something it's not designed for. June 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad design I had purchased and older Milwaukee close quarters drill and abused the living daylight out of it, it died after 14 years of abuse (I have the receipt to prove it). This drill seems similar in quality to me however the switch to go forward and reverse is very difficult to change, I feel like I almost have to break the trigger to go from forward or reverse. In addition the switch is on the trigger so I caught myself several times starting the drill when trying to switch to reverse. I also agree with some of the folks the cord should come straight out the bottom of the tool. March 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for woodworking This drill is great for wood working. I use this drill for screwing in pocket screws. It does not have enough power for larger lag screws. For larger drill use the Super Hawg. July 31, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by you need to get the rpm up to 2500 the rpm need to gut up to 2500 sanding and polishing turned wood November 1, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not quite there yet I bought this tool to drill 1/2" holes though about 5" of wood for hex bolts in stud replacements. The tools barely powers thorugh them with a nice bit. I found it surprisingly light duty for a Milwaukee - expecting a heavier duty product. It felt cheaper and less quality. What really ticked me off is the cord coming at 45 deg out back. In tight quarters, between studs, it kept interfering with movement and catching on conduits. The cord should emerge straight down, or even tilted towards the front. May 16, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not work for as advertised Agree with Mikey et al. Bought to drill holes in studs for wiring. Tool advertised as "heavy duty". Wouldn't even drill 1/2" hole without stalling. To compare, I drilled 1" hole (auger bit) with my 1/2" chuck 18V cordless relatively easily. Couldn't believe a corded product would be so wimpy. Never did enough to run into the "cord positioning" problem. April 15, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely Terrible - Do NOT Buy This! I used to tell everyone how great Milwaukee brand tools were.... That the additional cost was worth it, because it would last long enough for your grandchildren to inherit them... NOT anymore. Luckily I bought a bunch of Milwaukee tools before the company started making complete trash... The many Milwaukee tools I purchased between 20 and 5 years ago have been to h3ll and back and are still running in perfect condition. I mean, I seriously have abused these things beyond what anyone would consider to be reasonable and they still work like the day they came out of the box. However, the Close-Quarter Drill I purchased a few days ago was an effing joke. I drilled four 1" diameter, 1.5" deep holes in soft framing wood and the gears started grinding. A few more holes and the gears were skipping and banging. THIS IS THE WORST DRILL I HAVE EVER TRIED IN MY LIFE! I've been happier using Black and Decker drills (it makes me sick to my stomach to admit this). The sad thing is that I now don't know where to turn for good drills. Milwaukee Tools used to be my ONLY choice for drills, grinders, and certain types of saws. I work professionally in a wide range of manufacturing industries and I expect my tools to last. I seriously feel like I've lost a long-time friend. I will no longer buy, nor recommend Milwaukee Tools... They are complete junk. Consider yourself warned. December 29, 2013
