New Semiautomatic Screwdriver

Now you can shift from slotted to Phillips to Torx or square recess without ever touching the bit of your screwdriver: The new Worx SD SemiAutomatic Driver features a six-slot revolving chamber that rotates screwdriving bits in and out as needed. Inside the tool’s body is a rotating circular cartridge that holds six 1-inch, hex-shanked bits. Draw back the magazine (cover) to advance a bit into the chamber, then slide it forward, and it’s ready to drive screws. If a pilot hole is needed, there’s even a hex-shanked screw starter drill bit.

The Worx SD SemiAutomatic Driver is powered by a 4-volt lithium-ion built-in battery. The plug-in charger brings the driver to a full charge in 5 hours. Constructed of nylon composite, the SD driver features a two-finger trigger, an LED light to illuminate the work area and a forward/reverse rotation button.

The kit includes the SemiAutomatic Driver, two bit cartridges and 11 screwdriving bits: Phillips #0, #1, #2; Slotted #4, Hex #3, #4, #5mm; square recess #1, #2, and T10 and T20 Torx bits. Also included is a screw starter drill bit and 5-hour charger. The cost is $49.99, and it is expected to be available in October.
