"Not straight! This means the drill oscillates violently in your hands, accurate hole placement is impossible and the hole size ends up bigger than it should be. I would just like to add that this wasn't a result of abuse, it was like this from the first hole drilled! At first glance this drill was a good price, but not when you factor in the time to go back to Screwfix, complain about it and then get a decent one. Wouldn't recommend one of these and won't be buying one again."
