I had that what sounds like that same Craftsman drill and light. Same thing, I burned up the drill. I don't know what happened to the light. Wish I still had it. I replaced that with a pistol grip cordless but for the life of me I can't remember the brand. I eventually took advantage of a Rockler trade-in promotion and got the current20v Dewalt set.
I like the idea of the "system" tools.
BTW, California is banning sales of small outdoor gas powered equipment like lawn mowers, leaf blowers, etc in 2024. Because of that, I'm stocking up on maintenance parts for my Stihl leaf blower. Save your old gas powered stuff. The parts will become valuable out here on the west coast.
