Over at Amazon, this Dewalt DWA2T40IR 4pc FlexTorq impact-rated screwdriver bit set is currently low-priced at $18.
This is not a huge deal, but it does beat a pre-Black Friday 2017 deal by $2. The FlexTorq 40pc bit set typically sells for $25 at some other retailers.
A bit of price history research shows that this 40pc FlexTorq bit set has been at this price since May. The deal might last a couple of more weeks, or end tomorrow, it’s always hard to predict these things.
Dewalt’s “Magnetic Screw Lock System” is handy, but I haven’t found it to be a must-have.
It’s unclear as to when the pricing
Don’t need new bits? Maybe you’ll at least be amused by what seems to be some kind of Amazon auto-correct, translation, or 3rd party weirdness that put the following into the product description for the Dewalt FlexTorq bit set:
Flexor allows bits to flex up to 15 degrees which equals increased durability and reduced breakage for longer bit life. This set allows you to maximize you Impact ready system. It features a 10x Magnetic Screw Lock System for strong fastener retention and is preferred by professionals everywhere.
Sorry, these bits don’t flex, but like many other impact-rated screwdriver bits, they can temporarily absorb excess torsional energy, twisting the bits a little instead of breaking them.
In regard to Dewalt FlexTorq screwdriver bit quality, they’re good, or at least I haven’t had too many issues with them, but I’ve also taken a stronger liking to Bosch and Milwaukee Shockwave bit sets over the past few years, mostly due to better pricing or wider availability. I had a bit holder lose its magnet, which is always frustrating, but that could happen to any brand.
And as a reminder, Bosch’s 24pc impact bit set is also still on sale, although it’s backordered at the moment (but you can still order).
