Guessing http://www.amazon.com/WX254L-Semi-Autom ... tch+driver

I just bought some square drive screws that don't care (so they say) if you use `#1,2 square or (shudder) phillips to simplify my life. Unfortunately, as I have transitioned to square drive, the world has seemingly gone to torx. Can't win the convenience war without a gadget like the above.

I like Torx screw heads by far over others. I have much less trouble with the bit camming out.

Almost everything I do requires slotted flat head screws. Phillips, torx or square heads didn't exist in the 18th century. :-?

After years and years of buying bits and such I found out that one must have the right bit that fits the screw head. If there is a slight movement from side to side the screw will get its face torn off :D :D :D :D That poor little screw will have to spend the rest of its life Embedded in the wood with no face :D :D Poor little guy

The drivers good for light duty, the battery seems to be ok and last for some time. I screwed about 200 #4 Brass wood screws with the thing on a single charge. I do like the rotating check with all the little bits. its cool.39.00 bucks on ebay. cost more then that for a rack of beer and a party pizza :D
