Topic tags/keywords: bosch screw gun review

i bought this little screw gun about a year ago. every time i use it i like it more . i find it quite perfect as an assembly tool i use a lot of pocket screws and its certainly my tool of choice for that . lightweight , compact good power . the batteries last quite well on a charge . it also has a little light thats very handy when your standing on your head and trying to put screws into a base cabinet . i think i paid 109.00 for it . i bought it from a bosch rep that i ran into somewhere

Photobucket

let me introduce you to its double jointed cousin !

Photobucket

the rep. offered me a deal on this at the same price as i recall ive only used it a couple time and it worked equally well when it was needed

Very handy, specially the last one. For drawer slides your screw driver is always too big.

And it’s got blue racing stripes…lol

Good deal MrT. They look like they are a good size and handy for your needs. A light can be handy sometimes.

Are they impact drivers, or regular screwdrivers?

I have both. I tore up the pistol style one drilling a few too many 1” dia. holes through floor joists. I know … dumb. But in my defense I thought it was only going to be a hole or two, it turned into a dozen. When I finally replaced it I opted for the slightly more powerful Milwaukee M12 driver. I’ve ben hapy, but nothing bad to say about the Bosch.

The close quarters driver really comes in handy in tight spaces, but I rarely use it.

at first I thought the first one was the impact…nut you said it is a screw gun and not…..I like and have been very happy with the Bosch tools I have…...and yes you would like the impact…I use mine almost everyday driving screws or bolts it’s a great tool…......like the little screwdriver thing…think I’ll have to look into getting one of those…...

LOL…I know what you mean…,shhh.. don’t tell my wife but I put a bid in on the little Bosch I driver this morning :-) .....The great thing, other than the driving power of an impact, is that it doesn’t strip out your screw heads like a drill would/will….at least I have that problem with a drill and say 3 or 4 in. Philip head screws…....I like never hardly ever use the drill for anything else other than drilling small holes…....on hole saws and concrete bits I use a cored drill…..I use to burn up s few cordless 18volt drill,, work them to hard, but haven’t done that since I got the impact and I’m using the corded drill more…..
