Short Review: The Skil is a futuristic-looking machine with a large softgrip covered handle and a bright work light mounted on the base. It has a locking chuck that to stop the bits slipping out. On the top are a pair of coloured arrows which illuminate to indicate the direction of rotation. It has a very large variable speed trigger. Unfortunately, considering the voltage, the performance is less than impressive. The speed chosen is rather too fast for screwdriving, so drains the battery quickly, and is more suited to drilling. It’s supplied with a set of both drills and screwdriver bits. This is a fairly large tool, though still convenient and comfortable to use. Overall not a great performer, but considering the bargain price OK for a DIY Father’s Day gift.
