    Default saw this drill and slobbered

    doing some googling last night and the good old brand WORX popped up, look at this baby, for doing pocket holes etc it would be so neet. Yes I guess you can and do have more than one cordless drill but 2 in 1 wahoo.


    #*'<&^#@)" cannot get the pic to upload but the whole chuck twists and brings up a second drill bit..https://www.worx.com/switchdriver-20...er-wx176l.html

    There are also other people doing the same with twin normal chucks. Just a pity none of the "real" brands make one...

    Therein might be the reason no "real" brand is doing one - it might not work well or reliably?

    Not saying one way or another, just postulating.

    What I can't tell is how the bit-holding chuck works:
    Is it mechanical or magnetic?
    I've never seen or used a magnetic bit holding chuck that would actually hang onto the bit.

    Not much different to using 1/4 inch hex bits in any other driver is it?
    Some have the option to turn off the impact function

    IMNSHO, It seems to be over kill to me.

    I have a snap in hex driver drill. It only takes seconds to swap out bits. Although my preference is a regular chuck drill for drill bits (Bits cost a lot less) and the hex driver for countersink and driver bit.

    It is a clever idea but I would be be concerned as to how reliable the gearing in that swivel head would be in a budget drill. To my way of thing thinking that gearing would have to be high end to get any life out of the thing. Anyhow I have a couple of drills so not an issue for me at the moment.

    It's $90. Go for it. But to be honest for an extra $30 you can get the Drill / Driver combo. A proper chuck on the drill and two batteries.
    Those were the droids I was looking for.

    Mechanical using a ball detent, you pull the knurled ring to release.

    Before getting too excited, how come the version of this that was on the market years ago in Australia is no longer heard of. (I can't remember the year but saw an ad on TV and stock at A Lewis & Co, timber merchants.)
    There was a version of this in this years season of "Shark Tank" on the Ten network.
    The "Worx" drill probably has a 110v charger and the use of 1/4" hex drive bits will reduce drilling capacity in both diameter and depth.
    A good idea but...
