What do you think of when you think Dremel? Let me guess, a rotary tool. The reason being is because Dremel was the first rotary tool and they have been the leader ever since. In fact, most people don’t say rotary tools, they just say Dremel. Just like most people don’t say tissue, they say Kleenex. While they have the most well known rotary tool on the market, they also make other tools such as the Dremel Go Screwdriver.

Dremel Go Screwdriver – Impressions
So as you can see this is a small handheld cordless screwdriver. What is cool about this system is the push and go feature. So on the handle, there is a slide switch that has three positions. In the middle, the screwdriver is locked. Push the switch up and it will go to tighten mode and when the switch is down, it will go to loosen mode. So here is how it works, just push the screwdriver onto the fastener and the screwdriver will start loosening or tightening. Yes, it’s that simple. No switch, no turning your arm, just simple push and hold.
The push and go feature is extremely cool especially if you are working in tight spaces. I like how the tool also features an LED battery status light. The one thing I wish it had but doesn’t truly matter is onboard storage for bits.
A cool feature to note is the variable speed dial on the back of the screwdriver. Since this screwdriver is used more for precision, it’s nice to be able to adjust the speed. I know some adjust the speed by pressure but I would much rather have a dial because pressure never seems to work correctly.
Dremel Go Screwdriver – Wrap Up
Overall, I like this tool. The tool is easy to use and easy to control. While not everyone can use a tool like this, those looking for a small screwdriver, this is a very cool tool to own. And considering it’s Dremel, it’s a name and tool you can trust.
