Electric Screwdrivers Information

Anyone who has ever had to drive a large volume of screws by hand will appreciate the benefits that electric screwdrivers can offer, whether you are working in the construction industry or assembling flat pack furniture. There are a variety of types available on the market and not all of them can be easily categorised; however they can be broadly summarized as either cordless screwdrivers, drywall screwdrivers, screw guns or auto feed screwdrivers.

Here's our quick application guide:

• Cordless screwdrivers – mostly compact tools which are essentially stripped down drills with hex shank bit holders for quick and easy installation of screwdriver bits, many of these are affordable little machines which are intended for the DIY / consumer market and make ideal kitchen drawer tools for fixing and assembling things around the home (such as the ubiquitous flat pack furniture). However you can also find professional grade machines for use in industry and on the jobsite.
• Drywall screwdrivers – as the name suggests, these tools were designed specifically for the task of fixing drywall (plasterboard) to wood or metal. They are usually either screw guns or auto feed screwdrivers, but in either case the advantage of a dedicated drywall screwdriver is that it can drive and countersink drywall screws to the required depth in one motion, and with optimum power and torque to avoid damaging fasteners or driving them in too far.
• Screw Guns - Screw guns look much like cordless drills but instead of having a chuck, they are usually equipped with a nose cone (inside which is a bit holder for affixing standard screwdriver bits. On drywall screw guns, the nose cone enables drywall screws to be countersunk (recessed) into the material. Some screw guns are not designed for drywall but sheet metal, and some are multi purpose machines which can be used on drywall, wood, metal or plastic.
• Auto Feed Screwdrivers - the auto feed screwdriver, or collated screwdriver, enables rapid fixing of drywall by using collated drywall screws, which are continuously fed into the machine on a belt. This makes auto feed screwdrivers a great time saver for everyday users and large projects.
