I'll make a reply anyway. I like cheap, weak wimpy ones. Anything fast and powerful can strip out plastic parts. I use a $15 black and decker.

I have a $29 Ryobi from Home Depot. Does the job and the charge lasts a long time. Got the OFNA bits from A-main, works great, no hassles.

BUT... the Dynamite ones are the same price with a handle so you can hand-tighten...

Black and decker, works for me with a little handy holster charger it clips into. So it has a spot next to the air brush holder and the soldering iron. I still use a small wrachet for some of the wrenching stuff.

The new Dremel Lithium Driver has variable trigger speed. Most others are only a on-off with a high and low gear.

I needed a new dremel also so I picked up the package deal and I absolutely love it.

I like using elbow grease myself. But on my 1/8th scale stuff it gets a little tedius at times.

Thanks guys!!! I need to learn how to speel.

I am going to order the Ofna bits and I haven't decided on which screwdriver I want. Lowe's is 1 mile from my house, but Home Depot is like 15 miles

Keep em coming!!!

Default Drivers

Ok, the best driver that is out there is the Bosch driver, 10.8 volts, dont remember the part no#, but it comes with two lithium batteries, charge both and your set for a weekend of racing. Plus this is the only driver that has enuf power to remove and install the screws that mount the diffs to the chassis in an 1/8 scale rig. it has an adjustable clutch also. Lowes sells them , they are about 129.00.
I still use the hand tools to do the final torque.
My opinion on the Ofna bits, got them and gave them away, they dont fit the screws very good.
Buy MIP bits , they are the best.

Hmmmm... my Ryobi isn't variable speed... it has one speed, pretty slow. It had enough power to remove engine bolts (engine to mount) so it isn't weak. It also has an adjustable clutch. Also has an LED that illuminates what you are working on.

I like the black & decker VPX driver and the MIP bits. On and off switch trigger but the slower speed is great for screwing into plastic.

I like this one:

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=4246047

Small, lipo batteries, comfortable grip and has tons of torque to break lose screws easily. Only drawback is I don't trust it not to strip out screws, so once I get them close to tight I still tighten them up manually. Still, combined with the ofna driver set made putting together my 808 super easy.
