What next ? I gotta buy a pocket driver to use with a pocket hole jig now ? Just kidding, but it did sound confusing at first.

I have a little Dremel driver that I bought because Marianne doesn’t like the weight of my big 18V drivers. I use the little Dremel a lot – it has quite a bit of torque, and it fits anywhere.

Like Bentlyj, I have never tried the Hitiachi, but will swear by my Bosch 10.8v. It has really served me well. pkennedy

I have two of the Bosch pocket drivers. They had a promotion going on so I got the second one for free. One is always set up to drill pilot holes and the other one is always a screwdriver. If you do go with the Bosch though, make sure that you get the updated version (which I think is actually labeled 12V). The only real difference is there’s a magnet in the chuck, which makes it really convenient to drive screws. Plenty of power, and fantastic battery life.

I’ve heard good things about the Makita set as well, but haven’t used it. If you don’t want the 1/4” quick release hex chuck, I think Ridgid makes one that actually has a normal 3/8” chuck

I’ve got the Bosch 12v and I love it. Love a tool, guess that makes me a tool junkie.

I have the Milwaukee M12v and it is awesome! I can’t recommend it enough.
