For those of us with a 6X4 Bandsaw (or any other sized bandsaw), going from cutting a bit of 3mm on edge to cutting 150mm on its flat, can be very time consuming. I had this idea of fitting an Allen key of the correct size into a cordless driver drill, to speed up the process.
It works well, just have to remember to slow start the wind out as it will unscrew the bolt.:doh:
This idea should also work for those that have a hex headed bolt, just grab an elcheapo socket and weld a bit of bar to fit in the drill if you don't have 1/4" hex adaptor to suit the socket.
