    @siberian

    The PS22 has the clutch and the IDH182 has 3 speeds which limits max torque when you have the trigger fully depressed on the IDH182. The IDH182 I usually just set it on the lowest setting for woodworking and let it lightly impact and sink screws. The second and third settings are honestly way too much (Especially the highest setting with a 4ah pack) for any woodworking project short of using bolts.

    Now you’ve gone off topic and talking about the 3 speed impact.. I have one too and use all 3 speeds too.

    That’s a nice tool, I’ve been thinking of getting a mini driver.

    They come in handy especially for low torque work. I find it easier to keep them on the screw sometimes rather than using a bigger driver.

    Those mini drivers are especially good when dealing with smallish brass screws so as to not strip them which is so easy to do even by hand.

    I do use them on mine, but mostly I use my 3.6v Hitachi electric screwdriver for the smaller ones ; https://www.amazon.com/Hitachi-DB3DL2-Dual-Position-Cordless-Screwdriver/dp/B004Y74AU6?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0

    Will, That’s a nice compact driver.

    I have the Skil on that’s on the rewards list, picked it up at auction last year. same as the one below.

    Costco had that Skil set on sale cheap a few years ago and I almost picked up one. But I already had way too many drivers so I eventually put it back.

    The best low torque driver I’ve used is Makita DF010DSE, not cheap but the low clutch setting and auto stop is awesome for disassembling/assembling stuff.

    I’m torn between the Makita and the Ryobi, the Ryobi has a bigger platform for that pellet battery.

    I keep forgetting to redeem for that. I need one of those.

    I think i had that makita a few years back when i started to get tools. However i think i ended up giving it away to friend that needed it.

    True that the Makita 7.2 volt battery is not interchangeable with other tools, but the kit comes with two of them and I just treat it as an independent system.

    Doesn’t Makita make a higher quality tool?

    With out a doubt but when it comes to a little cordless screwdriver it doesn’t matter as much.

    @theamcguy its true makita makes a higher quality tool but ryobi and their multi faceted battery platform seems to make a convincing argument. i just noticed they started with a new garage door opener that can combine with multiple plug ins to do alternate work in the garage. i was impressed. I actually stopped at the store to check it out.

    My Makita 18voly vacuum is exactly the same as the Ryobi in Japan. I would guess that Ryobi makes them for Makita.
    Go ahead Doobie start digging around Ryobi Japan web sites and find the pic.

    I looked at that driver and thought it would be handy as a string winder for guitars if I were doing more work on them.

    i also use the drill torque settings for pocket holes, i find if i don’t the screws poke out on the other side causing a line of sharp tips.

    I’d just use a shorter screw then? and adjust the torque so it just snugs it up good without overtightning.

    I think screw length is tour problem here…can’t just use the same screws for every application.

    I agree. Are you using the washer pan head type screws that you are supposed to so they are less prone to over driving/sinking the screw? You really need to use those. Otherwise when you over sink them, you are also compromising the strength of the joint because you are crushing and deforming the pocket hole itself, often to the point where it can start to split the wood surrounding the hole from the inside where you can’t always discern it.

    no i bought the kit that comes with tons of different sizes. i match the screw to the size of the wood i am using them on and when i sink them in, it just pops out on the other side.
