Excerpt: "...electric screwdriver. I spotted the Black & Decker AS36LN electric screwdriver in a local timber and builders merchants for the very reasonable price of £36, a quick comparison on the iPhone confirmed that this was an excellent price so I grabbed the last one and fled home. === *** About the AS36LN *** === The unit is made by Black & Decker being assembled in China – as usual! The screwdriver is designed for general DIY use and it doesn’t seem to ...
Pros: Screws well, good battery life and its very reliable !
Cons: Some useless features and batteries are not removeable
Summary: I didn't realise how useful this little tool could be until I bought it on impulse - it was a Marketplace item I think, which meant that it had been returned by another purchaser. More fool them!It may be small, but it powers in screws firmly - if you want them real tight, you can lock out the mechanism and then use the tool as a hand driver. Clever eh? I did wonder about that silly looking orange thing by the drill chuck. Its a magnet.
Summary: I have used this several times now and i get more impressed with it everytime, putting up shelves in garage, 1 inch & 1.5 inch screws into raw plugs, no problem or reversing them out or directly into wood, saves a layer of palm skin. The light is ideal in dark corners but only comes on when pulling trigger, might be better with a seperate switch. Also when pulling trigger you sometimes catch the directional switch.
Summary: I am very pleased with my purchase,it has plenty of power for those small jobs around the home,easy to carry, quite a long battery life,I also like the way it is presented with the screwdriver bits on display.I find I am using it a great deal.It has become my favourite driver now.
Summary: This is the third one of these I've bought - for work, home and parents. It's a really handy little tool. Underpowered for anything meaty (not really worth trying to drill with it) but brilliant for around the house minor stuff. Well worth buying.
Summary: This item arrived in a pseudo biscuit tin which is of little use. Certainly not for storing or carrying the driver etc as it has no handle. The lid was crumpled and someone had attempted to straighten it but failed. The moulded plastic support inside the tin was so thin it had almost totally disintegrated. The instruction booklet was torn. I bought this item to replace a previous model which had stopped working after many years of sterling service.
