BLACK+DECKER says their new 20V MAX Lithium Cordless Drill with AutoSense is the first drill designed to understand when to stop screws flush with the work surface. It has two modes, drill and drive. In drive mode, a microprocessor continuously measures the tool’s performance. As the screw enters the material there is a rapid change in its torque profile. The microprocessor analyzes the rate of change and stops most screws flush with the material within three milliseconds. To countersink screws, the tool provides depth control for micro adjustments. A battery status indicator lets you know when the battery needs to be recharged and an LED work light on the foot of the drill illuminates large work surface areas and reduces shadows. The 20V MAX AutoSense comes with a charger and a 20V MAX lithium ion battery, which holds a charge for up to 18 months. The 20V MAX lithium ion battery is part of an interchangeable system that powers more than 30 BLACK+DECKER Power Tools, Outdoor Products, and Home Products combined. Two of us used the AutoSense Drill/Driver as you’ll see in the video. The only thing to be aware of is that we found the ‘forward/reverse’ lever is easy to move. So when you start driving or drilling you may accidentally put the drill in reverse. It doesn’t damage anything, but you’ll wonder why it’s not drilling until you push the lever to forward. Price: $79.99. Model #: BDCDE120C. Available at Amazon & many big box stores. As of 9/25/14 it was $79.00 on Amazon and it's Amazon Prime, so free shipping if you're a Prime Member.
