Are SDS drill bits the best idea ever?

Greg told me to purchase a SDS drill and I purchased this DeWalt D25313K Heavy-Duty 1 inch SDS L-Shape 3 Mode Hammer.  I love these SDS drill bits and I guess the drill and my cheap Harbor Freight drill bits ($10 a piece, 42639, 42651 Drill Master masonry bits) are good.  Why does every drill bit not use this system.  The second picture shows the SDS bit layout, it consists of a locking mechanism.  The third picture shows the chuck, which you just jam the drill bit in and it clicks in place.  The fourth picture shows how you remove the bit by just pulling the chuck back.  This system is just for masonry bits I guess, but why?

I did actually use the drill and I mounted and reinforced some stuff.  The last picture is all the crap I needed to install a couple screws.

You know what really makes me really angry? :)

Is it just me or is this what happens every time?

I really love this grinder so far…. I have burnt out a little Dewalt grinder like this one then purchased a couple others….  But this Bosch 9 inch large angle grinder is pretty awesome…. if you want to grind through anything!

Only problem with the grinder is the length…. it is 26″ from the tip of the shield to the cord.  Almost as large as my kid.  LOL  🙂

It has more horsepower then my work car at 4hp….  The DEWALT D28499X has 5.3 horsepower….  The Dewalt is cheaper also…. I forgot why I thought the Bosch was better?  Maybe I try never to purchase Dewalt?  🙂  No…. I think Bosch just usually has better stuff in general?  I actually only purchase Dewalt products because they come/came in hard boxes…. which they look like they are getting cheap and starting to go with bags?  Like this device? DEWALT DCS355D  Which I think is one of the leading devices in that category of knock off Fein products?  Apparently Fein’s patent ran out?  I can not remember everything!  🙂

But now Dewalt has kind of a conflict of interest?  They use to have the hard cases for everything…. even multi-packs.  Then they switched to bags for multi-pack.  But it seems that Bosch and others…. came out with stuff like the lboxx.  Now Dewalt has 2 systems the tough system and the tstak….  I looked at both online.  No one sells them locally so I decided to not bother.  I like the tough system though because of the water proof aspect.  They have also gotten cheaper so they seem more appealing?

Ebay.com crap, I mean good stuff

I purchased these from toolsandmorellc (ebay name) and she owns a store close by called “Tools & More” in Alabaster. I have been getting my cones stolen alot recently so I purchased some “Temporarily Closed” tape. At least it will be cheaper when they break or steal it.
