It will never work again either. you can't use a little drill for a big job, and 5 gallons of drywall mud is a big job. Sorry for your loss

Drill sqeaks when mixing drywall mud

If your drill squeaks, it's most likely one or both of the armature bearings are failing. If you run it too long after they fail, you'll also melt the case arount the bearing and have to replace the housing along with the bearings. You didn't specify which model you are using to mix mud but If you are using the Makita drill pictured with this query, you are over powering it. You should be using a spade handle drill for mixing mud. It has a gear reduction and more powerful motor to handle the torque needed to mix mud.

My Black and Decker Drill and Hand Saw have brand new battery pack and brand new charger to BE SURE battery is fully charged but still don't work

it is probably the brushes on the motors are wore out or stuck and not making contact. pretty much junk unless you feel confident enough to attempt repair.

Will a 12 volt slide battery work in my 9.6 volt Black & Decker Firestorm drill. The 9.6 volt batteries don't seem to be made any more. I don't think I paid a lot more for the original drill...

This close to father's day you should be able to buy a new drill for about the same as a battery. The 12v would overheat the motor if you ran it for an extended period.

Trying to mount blinds in kitchen, walls plaster over carstone. as soon as we hit carstone masonry drill stopped in its tracks!! less than half inch into wall!! really need to be at least quarter inch...

Is there a space between the back of the drywall and the stone? Or is the drywall tight to the stone? Either way, you need a masonry bit, I hope you have one, a hammer drill would be real nice, but you can muscle through it without one. You can try a smaller bit as your first cut , then go to the next size. Makes it a lot easier to drill. If there was a space behind the drywall, they make all kinds of fasteners for drywall only, they will hold quite a bit, but might not be enough for blinds that are going to be yanked on.

How do I change my black & decker electric drill to go in reverse or forward? As you can see I'm tool challenged. Kathleen

The switch near the trigger that toggles left or right controls that.

Good luck with your project, Kathleen.
