I guess my knives are machine assembled now! :eek:

New shop toy, to avoid carpel tunnel! Electric screw driver with electronic clutch.

I can adjust the force that it tightens too, it sounds like I am assembling knives for NASCAR! 2thumbs

Now I just need one for each torx drive size! :)

No worries Les, "If you ain't cheatin, you ain't tryin". With as much as you have to deal with all of those screws in folders, I can understand how this could be a great asset to your operation.

If you're holding the tool in your hand, it's still handmade :D

Ryobi makes a really nice cordless screw gun with a mechanical clutch. Good idea!!!

To me the problem with that is the battery makes them bulky and never charged when I need them... I am not moving around much, to the cord is fine.

When I initially saw it on the bench and thought it was a karaoke microphone.

Being a guest, I didn't want to say anything.................you know.......

...just in case you broke out in song.

Alex, I know what you mean, there is a good deal of these on E bay, I think this one was $30.

Well worth it! ;)
