Me personally I'm a DeWalt guy! Here's one that has the flex top just like the Panasonic but it's only about $65-70. I've had a few of them not the DeWalt yet! Might be on my shopping list when I get back to the US and go to Home Depot. http://www.acehardware.org/hand-and-power-tools/consumer-power-tools/screwdrivers/4724.html <DeWalt $72 @ Ace Hardware

I've actually had this one. It held up for a while and for the price not to bad. Mine came with a tool set I got for xmas a little while ago. $15-20 http://www.toolbarn.com/blackdecker-9074ctn.html?ref=base

Craftsman for around $25-30.http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00911779000P?ci_sku=SPM1758109803&ci_src=14110944&i_cntr=1294667926225&sid=IDx20101019x00001a

I've never heard of this company before, but for the price and what comes with it not bad $30 driver and a 174 piece set from Home Depot. http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10051&productId=100660559&langId=-1&catalogId=10053&ci_sku=100660559&ci_src=14110944&cm_mmc=shopping-_-googlebase-_-D25X-_-100660559&locStoreNum=121&marketID=1

I use a cordless drill for tear down and to get stuff started(screwed most of the way in but about .5mm be for they start to get tight. do all the rest by hand.

I have had a few Bosh-Craftsman-Porter Cable-Ryobi-Hitachi, they are all pretty good.

But if you want the battery to last and do the job you want every time you want- spend the cash and get the LION battery.

My drill is set up with a set of adapters that allow the use of 1/4-3/8-1/2" drive sockets.... I am assuming that you are still using the Phillips screws that came with the Savage. You can pick up a good #1#2#3 Phillips that will accept a 3/8 drive socket...works wonders.

i use a green ryobi one from home depot so far so good and i got it for 30
+1 on this, use the ryobi 4v Li camera at work and have the multi-meter and temp gun in addition to the screwdriver.

i religeously use milwaukee & dewalt tools on the job & the blue ryobi tools suck, but the green Li stuff is awesome lyle.

you CANNOT go wrong. cant believe its only $30
