There's no switch anywhere that I can find. There's no menu either. Just Channel 03 and Channel 04. I can't do anything else. Both channels are gray fuzz.

How do you toggle it between cable and antenna? I don't see any button or switch for that. There is no antenna. There's a hole to put an antenna in, but I don't have an antenna.

I don't like this method either. It's not simpler or faster or more effective and yes, it's more dangerous. In case I can return the drill, do you have any recommendations for a decent corded keyless...

It wouldn't work if it was in reverse. I tried it forwards several times, using pliers, and using the 'hold the collar' method. It never gets tight enough. As soon as I start drilling, the bit gets...
