Here's a video review of the C-12 drill/driver.  Most of the time I talk about the various chucks, which means it will be useful for people not interested in the C-12 per se.

Yes and Yes  [cool]


...and that was my sense of humor; no knock on either company, though my knuckle did hurt a lot after slipping with the 'red' 90º chuck.

Hi, thank you for the excellent review - was good timing for me :). Do you also have the T15 and if yes - do you still use the C12?

Paul, another nice review.  One small error regarding battery capacity--it should be 1.3 Ah not mAh (milliamp hour)  or 1300mAh.
Paul at this rate of excellent reviews, Shane will have no choice but to give you the Grand Prize. ;D

I agree that Paul's doing an amazing job and has certainly significantly enhanced his odds of winning in the video category. However, the reality is that the contest is not based on quantity, or even quality. The winners are selected randomly. So, someone who makes one video has a chance of winning. Of course, the more entries you have, the better your odds of winning.

Hi, thank you for the excellent review - was good timing for me :). Do you also have the T15 and if yes - do you still use the C12?

I don't have the T-15.  The C-12 is the only Festool drill that I own.  The DeWalt you see in the video has an interesting story behind it and was a gift from my dad; it will never leave the shop.  I did use an older T-style drill from Festool when I helped a friend do an onsite install; it was very comfortable and didn't feel anywhere near as heavy as the DeWalt.

The chucks are the same between the C-12 and T-15+3 so buy one drill as a set and you have the chucks to interoperate between all the drills.

I have a Centrotec chuck demo that I did with the C-12 that I just posted.  Give that a look if you are curious about the chucks.


Vijay: you know, when I said mAh, my brain said "D'oh!" and I wanted to put a call-out to correct it in the video.  I may go edit that on YouTube.  Yeah, 1.3 mAh would kinda suck, huh? :)  I swear the camera's red light makes me dumb.

That's what I came to understand. But I guess there must be some very plausible reason for this restricting measure from the people that pride themselves to live in the Land Of The Free where everybody is equal.

But, some are more equal than others (to quote George Orwell).
