Amazon has marked down the Black & Decker 12V Smart Select Drill to $40 — that’s a considerable drop from its original price of $155.  The drill comes with a battery, DC charger, and double-ended screwdriver bit, and Black & Decker backs it with a two-year warranty.  The drill also features the innocuous “smart select” images around the chuck, a visual representation of what each setting should be used for.

    Too bad that the battery probably won’t fit into a better tool – since it may almost be worth the price of the tool.

    It is also too bad that the venerable makers of some of the first power tools – and the innovators of tools like the Super Saw Cat – have now decided that the B&D logo should go on mostly low-end products.

    I’m more concerned, however, about a trend that I see with their Porter Cable brand – that they seem to be using for DIY’er tools – a far cry from the old Rockwell (not the new Rockwell) branded PC tools – like my “locomotive sanders” and Versa Planes.

    Regardless the original price, it still doesn’t seem like much of a deal. You can get an 18v Ryobi for that price.

    Ryobi also has a 12 volt , speed-light combo, 2 batts, 2 speed drill and a flashlight for 29 bucks at HD on line this week. Drill is pretty good, it’s like the p200 but with a smaller footprint.
