Our «old» (well, as an old, he is less than a year), the screwdriver is good for everyone: a small, capacious battery, quickly charges, everything that is required of it does. Only lately I began to notice one bad thing behind him. When I need to do something around the house, it can RRRRRAZ and disappear.
That’s just he was at hand!
I just went to the garage for a tape measure, but it was not!
But, the most interesting thing that every time after the disappearance I find it in our workshop. And the wife stands nearby and, innocently flaming, reports:
«Yes, I needed it to drill holes in the clock.
Well, I needed to drill earrings.
-And it’s not me, and in general he lay here for a long time.
In short, two owners at the same tool, it’s like two mistresses in one kitchen. I look at full idyl, and for the screen of smiles and pleasant communication, I want the second mistress of the handle something …
Therefore, I decided to cure the attacks of the sudden disappearance of my screwdriver surgical way: just giving it to his wife, and myself and to be buying a new one.
In addition, putting your hand on the heart, it was good for the workshop, but for the construction of the house frankly weak. When you twist them 100 mm. Self-tapping screw, rightly visible as the baby moans and shouts:
Turn me to my homeland, Gad!
I stroked him on the cartridge, carefully with a cloth, handed my wife and under her envious glance seized a piece of money from family piggy bank.
Well, where to go! I need a new shurk.
True a little more expensive. Three times.
But it’s little things!
Here he is, the hero of my today’s story — the new screwdriver DeWalt DCD 708 Atomic.
To be honest, I myself am surprised that I bought it.
The fact is that 17500 is not just expensive, but specifically expensive! Especially when the former screwdriver cost only 5 thousand.
The pros, of course, on this price simply shake, and for a home master, such money is already something. Especially, for me, DeWalt is a new company. Never communicated with her, everything is somehow Makita, Bosch, Metabich.
Why did you take it?
This is an atomic series of screwdrivers. With its development, engineers wanted to shove the unpiring — the power of 18 volt tools and the dimensions of the 10 volt machine. Partially it succeeded. On the passport, Schurik has dimensions of 160 mm. In real life — 167, which is not so far from the stated. The weight is not felt at all. Of course, he is heavier than my old, but not critical.
He has such such that screws 6 * 120 mm. They enter the bitch board not just fast, but with a whistle. Vzhiiiiiiiiiii and self-tapping screw in the board. The battery is enough for an hour and a half of truly active work. This is for the eyes, since the spare battery is fully charged in just 40 minutes.
And now that I did not like it.
I wanted power, I got it. But, tree sticks, I did not think that it could be too much. He breaks the heads from Samores once or twice.
Vzhik-Bzdin and self-proof hat rotates in the hole.
Therefore, you do not recommend twisting the screws on the drilling mode very much.
This is almost a drill in power, not a screwdriver.
No wonder it was called atomic.
I heard that many men who fan from winter fishing take such screwdrivers to drill holes. I absolutely believe, as Duri has enough.
And one moment.
On my old screwdriver, the backlight lamp is located next to the patron, it is not always convenient, but the light falls exactly where the bit or drill is directed. In the devolte, the light is located at the bottom of the handle, and when you drill a long drill or use a long bat, then … Well, you understand.
In general, the screwdriver works out every penny. You see for what I paid money. The only problem, the wife says:
«You bought yourself too expensive toy, so I want a fur coat.»
How to convince her that screwdriver for construction, and fur coat … fur coat … Mdaaa is a fur coat.
