Glad they still sell them!

" I've used one of these sets for the last 5 plus years. Beside the odd replacement drill bit and screwdriver bit it's been dependable and saved untold hours swapping drill bits for screw driver bits.
Compared to the quick release chucks and accessories on the market this device still saves on time, pilot hole, counter hole, countersink and then drive the screw in two stages - a simple flip of the bit! "

Love it.
24 Mar 2011
By Davymac
, Enniskillen
" Have three different brand sets of Flip-drivers, and whilst one type will require pulling the sleeve back and the others push the sleeve forward to release drill/driver, this gadget saves countless times, bending down to pick up separate drill, countersink and driver cordless units.
Any time I use this gadget in front of householder, they are all amazed and intrigued by the invention. All in one gadget for the fitter/carpenter is a must, especially if your working alone.

3 Pce Flip Driver Set
25 Jul 2014
By BathGnome
, Bath England
" A nice and basic cheap and cheerful set. No frills but it works and does what it is meant to. There are obviously better kits out there but at this price I have no complaints at all. Great for the DIY'er but if you are a tradesman spend a little bit more money and invest in some better quality tools. "

Flip Drivers
19 Nov 2011
By BobVu
, Cheshire
" Great Invention. Used mine a lot and saves bags of time fiddling about changing bits. Unfortunately though, 2 of the pilot drill bits have snapped off and when I tried to remove them from the driver the bottom end of the bit got sucked into the body by the magnet! Only way out was to drill through the magnets (thus wrecking them) and push the broken bit through. I agree with the previous comment that paying the extra couple of quid for the De Walt version would be worthwhile. "

A Must for all DIY'ers
16 Jul 2008
By BILBO
, Merseyside
" No more hunting for that chuck key or the drill bit you took out and laid down somewhere so you could put the screwdriver bit in, not to mention the countersink.
Plus it comes in 3 handy sizes, all with a countersink.
And it comes in a sturdy tin box. "

Was hoping for better quality
4 Feb 2014
By Wrongway
, Ulverston
" The idea is great but the overall quality isn't what I expected. The main problem as has been mentioned is that the drill can slip into the the holder pulled in by the magnet and is nigh on impossible to get out again. Poor design in that respect. "

Lost drill bits
14 Nov 2009
By RunningRepairs
, Cumbria
" I haven't even managed to get the device working yet. I went to adjust the drill depth (by the way, the Hex screws were very poor quality); the bit slid inside against the magnet and was so short I can't get it out! Held firmly in place by the magnet. One (now two) useless flip drivers! "

Not a good buy
13 May 2015
By Bespoke
, Bury
" If you leave the screw driver bit in, it doesn't fit in your chuck, which defeats the object, plus when you do manage to get it in your chuck, the body of it is that soft it crushes, plus the counter sink burns rather than cutting. Hence I will be returning them to the store. "

poor quality
8 May 2015
By Brirgr1

" Bought this and only used to countersink a dozen screws and ball bearing fell out of holder.traveled back to ScrewFIx and exchanged for another set.
Traveled back to site to start again and put in drill and found shank was slightly bent and caused rotation of drill bit to wobble.
Returned to store and handed back and bought De Walt set .
Lost about 4 hours work plus traveling back and forward to ScrewFix on two occasions.
Lesson learned not to buy inferior equipment again.Stick to quality brands. "

Awful! Pay more and get DeWalt
21 Mar 2015
By Wwoodster
, Nottingham
" I bought this as a replacement for a DeWalt set I have had for years. Mistake!! Poor quality, poorly aligned, not as easy to use single handed, and broke within a day!! The countersinkers don't cut very cleanly either. My advice would be to pay the extra and get a set that will last. "

Poor quality
19 Nov 2012
By Jedibassman
, Colchester
" Bought this product to make life easier.
When I opened it I realised it was very cheap but not very cheerful! The pilot drill will not stay fixed and the grub screw holding it has no point to fix it in place. The flip over worked a few times but the mechanism then failed and fell apart.
Better to buy a branded version "
