This time, it’s for a cordless screwdriver, of this ilk:
Confession: for most of my life I’ve used a variable-speed electric drill to drive screws home, because my experiences with the battery-type were universally bad. But my Bosch drills are too cumbersome, too powerful and too heavy for furniture assembly — they’re fine for construction, less so for cabinetmaking — and as I’m about to assemble some Ikea bookcases in the near future*, I need a decent cordless screwdriver. As always, I want to buy quality — not professional, but close to it — because if the damn thing breaks in mid-task, I will not be responsible for the rage which ensues. Ditto if the damn battery only works for ten minutes before expiring.
All recommendations will be gratefully received.
*Don’t chide me, I have very specific dimension needs, and the Swedish joint is the only place which has suitable bookcases — believe me, I’ve looked.
