Kit Up!

For the Engineers and Seabees


This may not be as sexy as a new LMG or ultra-light robotic assist bulletproof LBE, but you have to admit it’s a little cool.

It’s a drill that works like a revolver and after talking to a couple of contractors (the construction kind, not the gun-totin’ convoy kind) I think there’s an argument to be made for mentioning it here on Kit Up.

The 2lb. Worx SD Semi-Automatic Power Screwdriver uses a 4V lithium-ion battery and will charge from dead to full in 3 hours (the manufacturer advises it will hold charge for up to 18 months). The cordless drill has a rotating six-chamber bit cylinder that will cycle to a new drill bit each time the ‘slide’ is racked, and it has a second six-chamber cylinder to hold a reload. An LED automatically illuminates when the trigger is pressed, so watch your light discipline.

The Worx WX254L SD Semi-Automatic Power Screw Driver with 12 Driving Bits will be available 05 December 12—just in time for Christmas at the local Naval Construction Battalion.
