Picture the scene.....

You want to drill a 3mm pilot hole for a baseboard screw, insert the screw, then drill a  0.5 mm hole a plastic sheet and then  1.5mm hole in a piece of P.C.B....

Big drill from the workshop, then 'Dremel', but, oh, change collets etc...




Introducing the Ikea £20 Li-Ion drill/driver and charger. Compact and lightweight. They do a £30 two-speed version, but I've got all that in Bosch 40Nm and Makita 65Nm [serious, but large and heavy] There's an even cheaper £5-50p s'driver but it looks as though it will do one Billy bookcase, and that's it.

If you've seen these before, sorry to bother you, but I reckon there is room [almost literally] for one of these in most railway modellers' tool box.

Poop=poop!

Useful things to have. I use a Li driver with a 14wh battery, adjustable torque for screws, and fast enough for plastic, wood, brass. Decent runout. I checked out the IKEA one, bit too light for my hands and the runout is not that great on the couple I asked to test in the shop (that caused a kerfuffle, they had to find a couple of assistants putting displays up). Cheap and cheerful though.
