Ive a shed load of plasterboard to put up... and fair bit of chipboard flooring to go down.
A collated screwdriver would save me a fair bit of time I reckon, so thinking of buying one, a one off job pretty much, so open to a used item, or maybe new, depending on price. Hire is a possibility i suppose, but would want it for 3/4 weeks, so not that cost effective.

Cordless wise, ive plenty of Hitachi 18v batteries...
Probably go with 110v as most of my oter stuff is...

Its 37mm insulated plasterboard, so screws probbly need to be about 55/60mm, which rules out some guns.

Flooring wise, I see theres collated flooring screws... same machine, just a different screwdriver bit?

Are all the collated screws universal for different manufacturers?

Reach, are they all the same length, or adjustable?


Not a tool i've used in the past, so unfamiliar with them so any pointers gratefully recieved.

Cheers...
Are all the screws the same? Or do different manufacturers have different screws (or at least the plastic strip.. )

Pretty much a universal standard, Hitch. Some screws definitely feed better than others, though. Good ones I've had include Simpson (Strong Tie), deWalt and Makita. Bad ones? Screwfix ones are pants! The bad ones tend to cause a lot more jams and misfeeds

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!
