    A cordless screwdriver was the best thing i purchased last season, made life connecting up the hundreds of cables to the controllers so much easier.

    Every channel equals TWO screws to turn.

    The one i bought was a Ryobi Lithium screwdriver

    Interestingly i could do the connectors by hand with a large jewellers screwdriver just a little faster but at the expense of a sore hand.

    A size 3-4 slot bit will fit most of the multiway connectors used snugly.

    If you have a lot of channels that connect to screw terminals then i would highly recommend you invest in a cordless srewdriver.

    Of course you can use it for other things during the rest of the year

    Cheers

    I bought one of these last year too Phil. I can say it was definitely nice to have and one of my most use tools these days. Much more controllable than my cordless drills which I sometimes use for the same purpose.

    Definitely recommended.
