Have You Got a Screw Loose this Christmas?

The team at UnderTheChristmasTree were delighted when a new computer desk eventually arrived – at last, no more sharing. We were kindly sent the Bosch IXO Cordless Screwdriver to review.

As you would expect the desk was flat packed and required the steady hand of John, not just the boss but also a man who knows how to use a screwdriver.  After poring over the instructions he eventually got started.

John set too and quickly started screwing the computer desk together, just when everything was going so well there appeared to be a hitch and worked stopped as he pored over the instructions and scratched his head a few times. Eureka – he got it! He’d inadvertently put once piece on upside down this was why the screw holes on the next piece wouldn’t line up.  Luckily the Bosch IXO can remove screws just as easily as driving them in – problem solved.

This a a really neat and powerful, rechargeable screwdriver (charging time 5 hours) that also has an LED light which is surprising useful.  Weighing just 0.30kg it’s light enough to carry around with you and is always ready for use.
