This is a second generation hand screwdriver for manual use of all the Festool CENTROTEC bits and accessories. Fitted with a CENTROTEC quick release bit holder (the original version required a CENTROTEC chuck to be fitted).

Simple but effective.I bought this as a in addition to the Snappy one that I already have. The Snappy is OK but the rather large chuck sometimes gets in the way. I quite like the Snappy chuck because you can simply push the bit in and pull the sleeve back to pop the bit out - makes one handed changing simple. However, the Festool is remarkable in that when the bit is in place it feels like a one piece item. I have, over the years, used numerous interchangeable bit tools and they all have felt like - well, interchangeable bit tools. This does not, it even grabs onto cheap bits. Other holders just seem to stop the bit dropping out of the hex. For something so seemingly simple, it almost magical the way it grips.
