Dewalt DC600K Cordless 3.6v Screwdriver

Does anyone own one of these and if so are they ok for little jobs here
and there.

In the description it mentions the following 'Quick release 6.35mm
magnetic collet for ease of use and convenience'

Does that mean most standard bits will fit or do you have to buy Dewalt
bits and how would you go about using drill bits in it, do you need to
buy Dewalt stuff again or do you just need some adaptor.

Thanks

I've used one and it's OK for what it is. The chuck takes the
standard hex bits that all manufacturers use.

However, if you want a better tool in this class, then the Metabo is
quite a bit better.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the info, I have seen a similar Dewalt one which is a 7.2v
version, would that one be much better and could you tell me which
model of Metabo, perhaps point me in the right direction for it.

WIth regards to the Dewalt one, how do you go about using Drill bits,
do you need some form of adaptor for that.

You either get a hex shanked drill bit, or a hex shanked chuck adaptor.

Thanks John,

I have seen the hex drill bits but cant seem to find an adaptor online,

Best on test in a recent woodworking magazine was the Ryobi, also sold under
the B&Q Performance Pro label for an incredible £14:99! I have the B&Q one
and it's excellent. Ideal for those smaller jobs like hinges etc. Highly
reccommended.

It doesn't have a chuck as such, unlike a bigger drill/driver so the bits
fit an industry standard hexagon fitting. You can buy sets of drill bits
with hexagon fittings quite cheaply. Hex Shank Drill Set
