Over the past week or so, I’ve been using a new tool. It’s a SKIL 360 Quick-Select. I own five drills and this tool is very different because it features a bit magazine that auto loads the bit for you. Neat, right? It’s very convenient for DYI projects and fixing things around the house. No more wasting time searching for the correct bit. Thanks to SKIL, a reader of my dad blog can win the new 360 Quick-Select power screwdriver.
The bit magazine on the 360 Quick-Select is an integrated bit management system. It houses twelve commonly used bits in a rotating compartment. To select a bit, rotate the magazine until you see the bit you want in the lighted window at the top of the tool. Then push the sliding switch forward. To select a different bit, pull the sliding switch back and rotate the bit magazine to the appropriate bit.
The new SKIL tool includes two chargers. There’s the standard charger for plugging into a wall outlet. And then there’s the USB charger. According to the press material, it’s the tool industry’s first-ever USB charging capability. With the USB charger, you can charge the 360 Quick-Select by plugging into a computer or other USB port. Convenient, right?
The SKIL 360 Quick-Select is small and lightweight (about a pound). It features a Lithium Ion battery that stays charged for up to 18 months. The battery has a maximum rating of 4V. However, its 210 RPM is one of the fastest in its class. BTW, the power screwdriver also features a Site-Lite LED worklight to illuminate dimly lit areas.
