A Must have tool for inserts
The item is so easy to use like the screwdriver bits it is a pop in and out tool for various drills (handheld and drill press). As for the inserts it eliminates the hassle or braking that occurs when using just a regular screwdriver in perform the insertion. I highly recommend the power Drill threaded insert tool. A Must have.

Nice Tool - Must Have for Install
Bought this with 3/8" threaded inserts for installing a birch butcher block onto an island I built. I used the tool with a dewalt impact and it installed easily with this tool into both oak and birch.

worked as advertised
The driver worked as advertised and made short work of driving the inserts I had also purchased. I was careful with the driver as I had read other reviewers state that the "wings" had broken off in useage. So I made sure that the hole the inserts were to be driven into were properly sized and not overly tight. On the other hand, if the metal wings are made from a too soft a material then that should be addressed otherwise a handy tool will not be sold very long.

Easier threaded insert installation.
I have used threaded inserts many times over the years. This tool makes it so much easier than a bolt and jam nut!

Good tool
This helped me install 24 inserts into black locust. I also tried a big "2 fister" screw driver just to see which method I liked best. The tool was the clear winner. I was able to put the insert on the tool in the drill chuck (it holds the insert nicely on the driver blades) and drip some varnish onto the outer insert threads just before driving them into the wood. No runs no drips no errors.

Power Drive Power Insert Tool
This little device proved to be very useful for easy and accurate driving of threaded inserts. It is well worth the small price especially when a project involves several threaded inserts. It took seconds to drive the insert into the specified hole size and it was easy to have them go in without trying to use some ill-fitting screwdriver that messes up the slot on the insert and puts them in slightly askew.
