If your going to get a Black & Decker you might want to try this one. Of course its the one I use.

http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...3+90401+527285

Same price but you can set the torque so you don't over tighten screws and the handle pivots. I bought the OFNA metric's and SAE's from CarolinasRC both sets were 24.95 ea.

http://www.carolinasrc.com/Webstore/...idproduct=2807

Works outstanding and a good price.

I use the Bocsh, but any will work. Just make sure when you order the allen bits they have the milled end for the quick connect otherwise they will come out easy. I had to order 2 sets before I got it right. Alot of them on amain say 1/4" connector but they don't have the end milled to hold it in the drill, buddy of mine just did the same thing so I would hate for you to do the same mistake.

Drill is the way to go if you do alot of wrenching.

Been using this one for 3yrs -

http://www.blackanddecker.com/Produc...roductID=10952

In spite of heavy use, its only required charging 3 or 4 times a year. I don't keep it plugged in. Picked it up a Wally World for about $30. I use the Ofna drivers and it took returning a few sets before I got a set that was straight.

There weren't so many options as there seems to be now.

I use a Ryobi one, was $29 at Home Depot. Single speed, but adjustable clutch, and works great. It's a real workhorse for the price. And the Ofna tips are great in that driver.
