Worx Six Shooter Cordless Driver With Swappable Bit Cartridges Hot
Tired of having to fumble around with, and keep track of loose driver bits? Worx took the technology of two handgun types and came up with a way to make changing bits hassle free. It looks pretty cool too.
The AD SemiAutomatic Driver is a new cordless tool from Worx that uses a revolver style cartridge to store 6 driver bits onboard the tool. Using an action like a semi-auto pistol, the AD SemiAutomatic Driver changes out the bits the same way a gun would chamber a round. The driver is powered by a 4-volt lithium battery that can hold a charge for up to 18-months, but it does take 5-hours to charge. It is no surprise the drill is not very powerful - delivering 27in-lbs - but small lightweight tools like this are popular for light duty work and Swedish furniture assembly.
Costing about $50, the AD SemiAutomatic Driver (WX254L) includes two 6-bit cartridges, 11 driver bits, 1 drill starter bit and a five hour charger. Look for it this month in stores and online.
