Got to admit, this is awesome!
on November 26, 2012
This purchase was "That is awesome, got to try it!" So let me see if I can break it down. The drill:
1. Packaging good, nice and simple
2. Drill is small, not going to be a jobsite tool for sure.
3. Bits are contained as advertised, not going to lose them. (two "magazines" full of bits comes with)
4. Charging is done by plug in on both sides. Meaning the battery (as far as I can tell) is not removeable.
5. No carrying case. But the tray in the box is surprisingly heavy duty, (seriously) I may leave it in there in my tool box.
6. It does have a little LED light on the handle to illuminate a screw head.
Some things to note, this little guy is not going to replace your big dog 18volt (insert big name cordless drill). This little guy, is going to put your doll house together, hang pictures, tighten screws, little odd jobs that the big drill just gets all up in the way with and to be frank, way to powerful to do in the first place. The Worx is hefty enough though. It does not feel cheap, it does have some weight to it. The handle is a little small for my hands, but will work. The slide is heavy duty plastic and slides in and out very smooth, no sticking, nor does it feel cheap.
The RPM is way low, meaning the bit spins slow. Also there is no other speed. It will be easy to track and place on smaller projects and screws. The lock & load method is pretty awesome. You do have to manually open and rotate the cylinder inside the chamber for the desired bit (way easy). And it pops in and out super easy. I really like it so far. One other thing to note, there is no need to tighten the chuck or any of that, lock, Load & screw...lol. I dig this little thing!
Its the perfect leave in the house got to get it quick tool. The price point is good. Any higher and I wouldn't have done it. To find anything similar is difficult. After some hard use (putting togther Christmas toys!)I will definately update my review to see if it makes the 5 star! Since last year, my DeWalt crushed some delicate stuff, I had to use a manual screwdriver at 1am. Not this year!
I do like the drill and one commenter pointed out correctly that infact the drill bits do auto change: just slide back the slide all the way and it will rotate the cylinder bit to the next one. Yes ok, I missed it. Awesome point out and way awesome feature!!
