Is RS Radio Shack? our Radio Shacks in Canada sell bar accessories and that's about it.


RS components, they have a US agent too...
Prices range from 130 to $300 for the manual types... especialy the calibrated ones are quite heavily priced

I'm not sure if what your budget and size requirements are, but in the Wal-Mart stores in the USA I picked up a Black & Decker cordless drill set I frequently use for DIY limited-torque screw projects.

It included 2 14.4V batteries and has been very durable. The clutch is great for screwing into any material from soft plastic, aluminum, or all the way up to steel (in addition to full-torque drilling).

Price was $60 including the extra battery and carrying case, and some drill bits.

I used it to build my DIY car amplifier you see in my photo.

Whatever you do get something reputable and durable. Those cheap cordless screwdrivers or drills have very poor battery life and durability.

The only cheap (~$30-35) cordless screwdriver that I have liked is the 7.2 volt Craftsman one. It has 24 torque settings and the battery life is much better than the other cordless screwdrivers I have used. I have purchased a total of 4 of them now (one for me, one for my father in law, one for my brother, and one for my lab at work). They are a great driver for the money. The original model was made by dewalt (according to the parts sheet), but the new model presently for sale does not seem to be. I purchased one of the new ones a couple months ago and it seems to perform just fine.
