Hi!
I have gsb 10,8 with led illumination.
There are basicly 2 problems:
1. it's slightly off center where I wan't to drill. Maybe would be better to have simmilar design as GDR 10,8 if possible.
2. You can't have only light on before you start the motor (you can but it so small gap in press strentgth on button before you start a motor, that is usless). So if you can make a soft press for led illumination on and hard press to start a motor with led on.

There are some limitations due to the need for a chuck on the GSB that prevents in-line illumination.
The trigger should have alittle play in which the LED will come on, without starting the drill. Setting the tool in between forward and reverse should make it even easier to pull the trigger but not start the tool. I have seen some redesigns of some of the new 18v GDRs that have the lights as a button on the base so not linked to the trigger. Maybe this will catch on...
