No woodworking tool is 100% perfect, and so is the WORX WX255L SD Semi-Automatic Power Screwdriver. For starters, this product is only suitable for handling small, low torque projects. At 4 volts, the torque/power is might be inadequate while screwing into hardwoods or handling high throughput projects. Do not expect it to replace your full-size drill, especially if you are a professional. Also, WORX WX255L SD Semi-Automatic Power Screwdriver cannot handle a full kitchen restoration project but excels around small gardens and home projects.

The best tool should feel solid and snug in your hand. The WORX WX255L SD Semi-Automatic Power Screwdriver does.

It has a secure and well-engineered design that, once set to your desired location, stays locked in your preferred position. All components are robust and durable. Unfortunately, because you do not get magnetized bits for some reason, you might have a hard time securing your bits on the work surface.

Also, the tool is not as small as some people think, and the placement of some buttons make multi-tasking a headache. The risk of activating the wrong button and ruining your work surface is high while novices might have a hard time operating it for a long time.

The tool takes about five hours to charge and uses ¼-inch hex bits, approximately 1-inch long.
