Cordless Screw Drivers

Postby Turps » Mon Aug 17, 2009 1:49 pm

I am after a cordless screw driver. Seen others using them at comps I have been to.
What have others been using?
I think something with adjustable torque is the way to go. Just havent found one yet (bunnings and Mitre10) and ebay dosent bring up anything I like.
So keen to hear of what people have tried and what they like.

Been using a Bosch lithium from bunnings for a while now no worries.you just buy the allen keys whith the same size hex drive as the driver bits.
See your hobby store as it they are the same make as the drivers they sell for rc cars.
And yes they make beadlocks a breeze,just don't strip the screws.

I picked up a Ozito 7.2 Volt 180 rpm from Bunnings for $20.00 it also has 5 led lights so you can use it at night. I picked up the bits in the photo from my local dick smith con't remember how much they were.

i seen the ozito one at bunnings but never checked the price.
And dont think I seen the bunnings one. As having adjustable torque I thought was a good idea.

I thought of the bits already in a socket type thing. Just didnt know you could get them in 1.5mm and up. I had seen them in the bigger sizes. As had used them before on my patrol (great in an impact gun).
Cool will goto Jaycar and Dickies tomorrow.

Just be careful using these on untapped plastic holes, cordless screwdriver spins the screw too fast heating the plastic as the thread is cut increasing yr chance's of stripping it first time. Better too cut the thread by hand tools first, unless of course u have alloy beadlock's 8) :lol:

^^ I wouldn't tap the whole at all when using a screw straight into plastic. Tapping the hole cuts the polymer chains in the plastic and reduces strength. If you don't tap the hole, the polymer chains are plastically deformed around the screw thread and the thread form will have better pullout strength - kind of like the difference between machining and forging.

lost in translation, i meant just cut the thread with the screw & screwdriver or allen key not a thread tap :wink:
