    This will probably become the drill/driver i reach for most, its small and compact and has torque to spare, the speed control trigger offers perfect control and the torque settings can be set up to suite any screw, the build quality and feel is as expected very high end, the rachet chuck grips a bit very well, the battery indicator is on the tool itself and its a three level indicator and activates with trigger press and it auto sleeps, the led light comes on automatically with trigger press and can be activated without the tool rotating with a gentle trigger press this is good when you first need to find the screw head or marked hole places it is the perfect mini drill/driver.

    It is a snug fit in the hand and well balanced, it works like a dream. I love the new style it gave me some awesome precision movements as I can use it like a pen, it is super convenient for me who loves to draw and would give model builders the ease to sand or remove seam lines or unwanted details. Worth every cent.

    Sorry to say … but this is not worth the money. I have struggled to get this plane to work. I sharpened the blade … readjusted everything and still it doesn’t really ‘plane’ anything. It almost looks as though the angle is wrong on the blade. There is a reason why proper hand planes are so expensive.
