...before I put in all the screw bolts on my metal roof.
There is special tool/screw for this job - google TEK drivers and
They work in a very similar way to drywall screwdrivers, with a set-
and-forget setting on the nose, that operates the clutch by position/
depth rather than by torque.
Probably more than you want to spend for a one off job, but hiring
might be a possibility if you have a lot of fixings to do in one go.
which seems to do what you describe and only costs £5.
I agree that the specialist drivers such as
are too expensive for one job.
My main problem now is mail order and the bank holiday weekend.
I'm very happy with the Ryobis B&Q are selling for less than 80 quid
Unfortuantely I left one battery on charge overnight. They take 3
hours from flat but you are warned not to let them flatten as this
reduces life. I wish I could get spare batteries but I doubt they'd be
worth it if I could. I might go for a rebuilt battery if there is
someone locally doing them (Stoke on Trent anyone?) If I was in
serious employment and the larceny at the maks was over and done with
(which irt ain't as the thieves are still there) I'd get another pair
Maybe if I get another pair I'll get a timer for the chargers.
They are 14 volt but have plenty of torque. They come with 2 drill bit
holders but they are non magnetic. The bag they are packed in is
useful I suppose but you can get a cheap shopping bag from any charity
shop that will be a much better holdall for all the tools required on
Personally, I prefer a 2 gallon plastic bucket. But at least if it
rains you can cover your tools.
A 10 or 20 quid purpose made shopping bag type of tool hold-all
doesn't have a cover. WTF? If they were long enough to hold a saw and
provide for rain or dusty conditions or just cut down on prying eyes a
little, I'd get one. Since I usually only need one of the tools and
the charger can go on a wall, I suppose the bag is just about big
enough for a few hand tools. I keep my drill bits in it.
So all in all, a happy choice for DIY and for not too much heavy duty
