After our post about the new Bosch PS31 3/8″ drill/driver went live earlier today, I realized that the PS21 Pocket Driver is essentially identical to the newly redesigned PS31 drill, except for their different chucks (1/4″ hex vs. 3/8″).
Following hot on the heels of the newly redesigned PS21 Pocket Driver is Bosch’s new PS31-2A 12 volt 3/8″ cordless drill/driver, which improves upon their PS30 model. The newest addition to Bosch’s lineup of compact lithium-ion cordless tools is lighter, more compact, and stronger than its predecessor.
Bosch’s SPS10 is an ultacompact cordless driver intended for light to medium duty tasks. This ergonomic 4-volt driver can deliver enough torque to handle up to 1/4″ screws, and enough power to drive up to 110 screws per charge.
Wera’s Rapidaptor universal 1/4″ hex bit holder might just be the best such bit holder that I’ve ever come across. The Rapidaptor securely holds insert and power bits without any wobble at all, is self-locking, and features an easy-change unlocking mechanism.
Bosch has just announced the PS21-2A, an upgraded short-nose Pocket Driver in their lineup of 12V Max compact cordless power tools. Compared to the popular PS20 Pocket Driver, the PS21-2A is smaller, faster, and can output twice the maximum torque. Bosch’s new and improved Pocket Driver is described as the most compact and powerful screwdriver in its class! Skeptical […]

Over at Amazon, Ridgid’s 1/2″ drill and a 1/2″ hammer drill are priced considerably lower than at Home Depot and other Ridgid distributors. This could be a temporary sale or price drop, but maybe we’ll see more price drops as part of an end-of-the-year sale. Ridgid R7111 8-Amp 1/2″ Drill (Amazon – $57 at the time of this posting) […]

We had to double check, but these are new tools and not refurbished, or bare-bone kits! Note that this Impactor is going to be […]

It really is no secret that impact drivers are becoming more and more popular among both professional users and consumers. With this in mind, Dewalt recently released an entire line of new Impact Ready drill and driver accessories.
Milwaukee very recently released a new M12 product – the 2415-21 cordless right-angle drill/driver. The main selling points of this driver are its super-compact size, 3/8″ chuck, speed control, 11-setting electronic clutch, and runtime battery gauge. The only thing we read about Milwaukee’s right-angle drill/driver that we didn’t quite like is that the kit only comes with […]
CPO Bosch over on Amazon is offering a reconditioned Bosch PS10 I-Driver kit for $60. This driver design is particularly well suited for driving fasteners in cramped workspaces.
