    MagRevolver magazine screw holder Kickstarter - photos

    MagRevolver magazine screw holder Kickstarter project. $54 pledged of $7,056 goal, with 27 days remaining. Full 0:58 video:

    I guess I would have to use the tool before passing judgement, but, first impression: gimmicky, sloppy, and dangerous.

    I like the concept, and I know that collated screwdrivers are used for drywalling. But between loading the screw magazine, and then gingerly pivoting each screw into position, I don't think I'd save much time or hassle.

    It looks like the tip of the magazine prevents you from driving a countersunk head screw slightly below the surface of the wood. Seeing a protruding screw head mentally destabilizes me. I also know it's magnetic, but I'm not so sure about all of those screws pointing at me, let alone that that open spinning screw magazine. And, is he driving 3"+ wood screws with a Philips head and no pilot hole? That reminds me of being a teenager.

    I do wonder if you could change this design a bit and make a useful tool: shield the magazine, make loading the magazine easier, and make it easier to move a screw from the magazine to the driving bit. Or maybe the magazine should be separate, and not attached to the drill. Note: if you want to research this concept a bit more, searching for "screw magazine" in Google is probably not the way to go.

    Embrace the work. Learn to take the time to do the job properly and enjoy doing it.

    In this case, "gimmicky" would be a compliment. It's hard to imagine something more complex intended to save a few seconds on a job that isn't going to take that long anyway.

    Get a handful of proper Robertson screws. Hold in left hand. Attach screw to magnetized Robertson bit in drill. Drive screw. Rinse and repeat.

    You were born with two hands. Learn to use them in concert.

    GOt to agree this is not something you will find in my tool kit.
