So I thought I would give one of these a try. I was walking around Home Depot at lunch and was about to leave empty handed when I decided if the good people at HD are nice enough to sell tools, then I should be nice enough to buy something! I was working on an old rocking chair this weekend and there were some screws that weren't very tight but in a pretty tight location, and this would have been pretty handy to get in there and snug them up. I was able to do it by hand but this would habe saved a lot of time. Anyone ever use one and have any thoughts? I'm just assuming without trying it that it should work ok for lighter duty jobs but I'm not sure about the tougher jobs.

. Lol Kruton!! In my garage all brand tools get along except that Festool hasn't found its way here yet ;)

We are in the same boat with the lack of Festool my man, but we will take care of that eventually!

I like mine as well,the only thing I don't like about it is that the shaft moves so freely so it usually takes 2 hands to operate this and the drill. a hex screw to tighten it up would be a nice feature but other than that I love it. Though I have read complaints of the gears stripping out in the early models.

Ok so after my first use I have to say I am a fan. I used it to remove and replace the screws I tightened on the rocking chair this weekend. The thing fit perfectly and was able to pretty easily remove the screws. I definitely had to use a hand on it when I started removing the screws and then again to drive the new screws. My next test is going to be starting a new screw with no pilot hole and see how that goes. All in all it is worth the 15 bucks just for what I used it for tonight. To make it an unbiased test I used it with my Bosch, Ryobi and Milwaukee drills mainly just because I felt like playing with all of them!

Seriously, why would you want a Festool? When tool companies like Milwaukee, Dewalt, Bosch, and Makita provide you everything you need at a quality cost, why would you want an overpriced tool brand? Thats like spending 300,000 dollars for that Snapon tool chest, when the 700 Milwaukee toolchest would be all you need.

I really like their integration with their dust collection setups. Plus that Kapex is one precise mofo. I was hooked after I watched a video ChrisK posted of his Kapex. I figure a Ford escort can get me places, but you are hell of a lot cooler getting there in a Ferrari! [emoji6]

That's odd, the metal head is rated as being 5X stronger than the 2X black plastic head version. It's designed to take the torque a little better for those tougher jobs. Neither one is a substitute for a right angle drill but will usually work well enough under occasional general use. If you plan on using it primarily for repatedly boring 1.25" holes with spade bits through studding don't do it because it won't last very long.
