I spotted a new Dewalt drilling and driving power tool accessory set, DT71569-QZ, and its case struck me as quite interesting.
It has a clear lid – always a nice touch – and is advertised as being a reusable storage case for use with a T-Stak drawer unit. I’m not sure, but I believe they’re talking about the DWST17804 case, currently $25.49 at Acme Tool.
That actually seems like a neat idea. Does the accessory case take the place of one of these drawers, or does it fit inside it? Just to clarify – it doesn’t look like this is a T-Stak unit, it looks like it is only compatible with a T-Stak drawer unit. But you could use it by itself as well.
You get a selection of drilling and driving accessories – hole saws, screwdriver bits, nut drivers, drill bits, and masonry-drilling hammer drill bits.
Now, while this looks like a neat idea, I am so confused. Why are the drill and hammer drill bits given metric sizing? And if you look closely, the hole saws have dual-unit measurements on their plastic cover.
I’m thinking that either this is an international listing that accidentally made it to Amazon.com, or it’s coming to the USA but the decision was made to reuse the metric set’s product image.
I’d love to see something like this bundled with a T-Stak unit as part of a holiday season promo, except maybe with a different drilling and driving accessory assortment.
