Friend is looking for a rechargeable screwdriver that's small (6") and quick. What do you guys use?
is it cordless then? never seen such things. but i think i may wanna try one sometime
I have this at my house http://www.blackanddecker.com/productguide/ProductDetail.aspx?PID=4878&RHID=739&P=ProductDetail.aspx&ATT=AttachmentDetail.aspx&ACC=AccessoryDetail.aspx&ACS=AccessoySet.aspx&R=ProductListByType.aspx
I have used it inside my computer alot, I have a mid-tower and it fits in just fine...
I use this one. I like the adjustable torque and speed settings it offers:
6" = 1/2 a foot
I think he's thinking of a handheld. I've only used dildo sized screwdrivers since the smaller ones tend to not have the power. The only downside is that they sometimes can't get into the same spots a small screwdriver can.
I didn't say taht it was under 6"... I simply said that is what I use. With it's pivoting-design, I've never had a problem getting into tight cases... And the adjustable torque settings is great to make sure you don't strip screws, but still have enough power to get screws out.
Yea, I use a black and decker with a pivoting neck, works fine in tight spots.
On the subject, anybody been able to find torx driver heads for these?
yes, you can get them at Home Depot and Sears. You need an adaptor that lets you stick a short-bit into the long-bit slot of the driver. It works out for the better, however, because it extends your reach and you can get a magnetic one to hold onto screws for you.
^^ offset driver.
That offset driver looks pretty neat. The cordless screwdriver will be used on laptops most of the time, and some desktops.
I would never use a powered tool on a laptop. We use it on desktops all the time, but we use small hand tools for laptops. Trust me, you don't want a power tool for a laptop.
