I need a good drill, period. Basically, I bought this drill 5 years ago (not sure of brand) for $70 and it works fantastic on small fender gauge materials and smaller gauge metal sheets. Anything bigger, like drilling a hole into a frozen bolt etc it just fails to even make a mark.
I need a better one with more torque, any recommendations? Brand? It needs to be 110Volt setup and no battery please.

Breaks down all the time...

Torque doesn't have much to do with making a mark on harder material. It sounds like you're using junk bits. Get a nice set of Cobalt bits not the Lowes Kobalt brand. Rigid makes some decent ones.

There are lots of good 110V cord drills out there. Porter Cable and Makita are both good. If you need lots of torque get a 1/2" drill with the side handle.
