    I was doing something on my truck and I needed this offcenter drill yesterday

    Do you have one Ibrahim, or you mean that would have been great while working on your truck,
    It does look very practical

    The Flexi is on sale over on amazon for $30 off. Not sure how long the sale will last.

    Does that make it 139$?? That’s a good deal.

    So many of you are hyping that drill – when I got to play with it a bit I wasn’t really impressed with the need to get one, since I have both the 31/41 and 32/42 12v sets at home and work, but, man!, the pressure of repeatedly hearing about people getting one and then sales …Bosch is definitely doing well off this forum! I am about *this* close to ordering one myself…I mean, I at least could use more batteries, right? LOL! #rationalization

    Robs video had a couple of neat tips that the manual that came with the tool did not cover

    First you can put hex bits directly in the tool with putting on a head unit. This will make for an even more compact driver

    Second you can combine head units like the right angle head and the drill head, to make a right angle drill.

    I learned that too. Nicer versatillity than I realized.

    But lile he pointed out also, why cpuldn’t they have gone with the traditional pull mechanism for the hex attachmemt. That’s gonna take a little getting used to for me.

    My guess is that they figure that the constant pulling when changing bits might have an event lol (effect) on the locking mechanism for the Flexi click system,
    Just a guess,

    darn smartphones lol choosing words for me

    I actually put mine to real use yesterday for the first time. To have to depress rather than pull the hex chuck didn’t bother me. In fact, it seems it’s a better way of having it for ease of bit changes. It’s just we’re so used to the opposite way. I wonder if this is the direction they’ll all be going, or if it’s just due to some design necessity inherent to the Flexi system.

    The push to release is actually an old design. It was abandoned probably 20 years ago in favour of the pull to release mainly to avoid accidental release of the bit by pushing the collar against some stray object. I have no idea why it would be incorporated in a current model. It’s definitely a deviation from standard practice.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Didn’t know that it was the standard long ago Peter. I only used standard drills back then, none of the driver/impact styles I have a bunch of now.

    Quick change chucks were common in industrial applications for many years before construction tools adopted them

    It’s out of stock,

    Guess the sold out quick at that price. The Flexi has gotten good reviews from all who have tested it. It sounds gimmicky but it works.

    That’s what I have been seeing, plenty of good reviews.

    This little drill is pretty good. On par with my Festool drills for versatility. I am working on my review. I would recommend it for sure to anyone needing this kind of drill. For the work I do, having interchangeable heads is a must. If I were just drilling and driving without need of a right angle or close to a corner and dI’d not need a compact drill body, then I would opt for a traditional drill/driver. But when you need to get into tight spaces, this one is hard to beat.

    yeah that’s what I assume too. The attachments are pretty good. they came in handy.
    Overall it’s a well build tool, doesn’t feel cheap.

    The only thing that the Flexi has missing is an impact mode.
