Spax vs TurboGold (Pozidriv)

Page 2 of 2  


If it cost a pound, then you got what you paid for. There a few makers making this type of thing.

With this one you just put the screw in even when turning. No need to adjust anything once set.

Yes, I saw one a long time ago. Very useful though.

The linked one was the exact one I saw being demonstrated on QVC along with the 'push hammer'.

somebody or other might have said:

Saw one of these being demonstrated and in the interval before the next performance had a good look at it - and decided to buy one. Only cost a fiver and another couple of quid for some spare bits.
I've done some heavy duty work with it - three inch number 10s into good wood, corrugated iron straight onto timber, garden timberwork.
Well impressed - but there is a knack - takes 1/2 a dozen attempts to get it right. The "gotcha" is the bits - they are NOT any standard size and even then they need a little O ring ... I bought a bitless one at a car boot sale (50p) and a friend to whom I gave it (having played with the complete one) is still trying to find a supplier of the bits and he has access to all sorts of specialist suppliers.
The build quality does look suspect - I'd love a really nice one. (Tool lust) Wonder who has the patent ... Barley Twist (Please put out the cats to reply direct)

At 5 it doesn't sound like the QVC one. Where did you buy one for a fiver?

at a huge carboot sale just outside Portsmouth a year or two back.
Demonstrator had a very slick act, and the stall was quite impressive - more like an exhibition trade stand. AFAICR you *had* to buy the bits as well as the gadget - they were sold separately, but the all-in cost was still only about 7 or 8 pounds max.
No - you can't have it!

Did he do any other magic tricks? Spinning plates on sticks, boomerangs, that kind of thing?

No - but he was certainly an accomplished presenter - that's why I waited until he took a break before asking to have a look at the gadget - he was very good at getting the crowd to part with their cash and had an almost palpable "want ...need ...buy " atmosphere buzzing during the demos. Probably a politician now ... Or an IT systems vendor!
