First I installed a post on the DeWalt. The post provided my thumb a place to engage and led to greater control and a barrier between thumb and bit. However the depth adjustment is crude for this precise job and the machine is top heavy for this work.
While touring Lowes I spied the "Colt". Gave it a simulated test drive and was sold. Low center of gravity. Good depth adjustment. Took little time to reproduce exact depth needed for hinge I am using. Good visibility. Collet is sticky. May improve with use. Miles of power cord. Plenty of power for a 1/4" bit. Adequate grip but I will install a post on this one too. $89.
