Skil iX03 Palm-Sized Screwdriver

Skil_ixo3.jpgSkil has just released the iXO3, the third version of their popular palm screwdriver. To us, there were no apparent changes between version one and two, leading us to believe that there was some sort of battery upgrade, but this time, Skil has added on a removable right-angle attachment. We like this addition and think that it adds greatly to the appeal of the tool, particularly given it's small size. The ixO3 is only 3.6 volts so it's not going to be doing a lot of heavy lifting, but for around the house stuff like tightening drawer pulls, minor electrical work, and assembling toys and furniture, it should work great. All of these tasks mentioned are also places where the right-angle feature could be useful as well.

Unfortunately for all you iXO and iXO2 owners, it looks like the iXO3 is outfitted with a special chuck to accept the right angle attachment, so it doesn't look like there's the opportunity to retrofit the piece to the older models.

The iXO3 costs about $40, which is actually less expensive than the previous models without the right-angle attachment.
