Title: Two speed right angle drill

Abstract: A drill (10) has a housing (12) with a motor (14) which includes an output pinion (104) which defines an axis (102). A power source (16) is coupled with the motor (14). An activation device (44) energizes and de-energizes the motor (14). As the motor (14) is activated, an output (18), which is coupled with the motor (14) is driven. The output (18) defines an output axis (156) which is substantially perpendicular to the motor axis (102). A transmission (20) is coupled between the motor (14) and the output (18). The transmission (20) changes speed and torque of the output (18) between at least two different settings.
