Am I the only one who has trouble finding the right screwdriver that’s the right size and shape for the hardware I have to remove from a dresser? Usually I need a flat-head screwdriver for the vintage pieces and I’m always misplacing them. I use them so often for prying things, opening paint cans, etc. and I’m not the greatest at putting things away.
It basically is a hybrid between a regular screw driver and a drill. You turn the handle and there are some gears inside that turn the tip a little faster. (I’m sure that’s not the technical description…)
…and it successfully removes the hardware (as it should.)
There’s a small switch on the side to turn, so it can drive or remove screws, much like a drill. If you’re interested in seeing this tool in action, here’s a great video review.
It also comes with a bendable extender thingy (again, not the technical term)…
…and a set of driver bits.
I especially like that the set includes square and star-tipped driver bits, since that’s mostly the kind of screws we buy (my husband is passionately anti-flat-tip screws.)
I like gadgets that make things easier and all-in-all, the Swift Driver is a pretty good gadget.
Now if I can just make sure I don’t misplace it…
