    I've wanted a collated screwgun for a good while but the dewalt one bare is £230

    The Makita as a set with a battery is cheaper, but having used them a good amount id never buy one

    So i thought ill try an attachment for the drill, that was only £16 i trialed it an the mechanism is fantastic plus simple but it doesnt fit any of my drills well enough to use.

    A solution had to be created, also a good opportunity to play about in the workshop and have a break from the house.


    Marking out

    The part was turned eccentric to allow space for the clamp screw simple set up

    As my mill isnt set up i held the part in the chuck and used a large endmill then finished with hand tools

    Little bit of tig welding shes complete

    Took 3 and 1/2 hours a good deal was looking through unsorted boxes for tooling

    Damn. A collated screwgun sounds like fun. I want one.

    Primarily for dry walling, I bought one for fixing my floorboards down.

    Well its installed about 300 screws today maybe 3 misses which don't leave a badly jammed gun unlike the makita.

    Only fault with the gun is a pin that's retained by an oring dropped out its now super glued on. Really impressed

    Not had much need for a board lifter yet for myself but il buy one in a heartbeat if the job dictates it

    Hardly worth unpacking it for a 4 board ceiling
