Yep, it's a drill, with a separate hammer mode that you can set it to.

Lol..that would be overkill using hammer drill to ruin your ikea furniture. You definitely don't want to use the hammer feature. The bits will fit though, think it uses chuck instead of the 1/4 hex.

What you need is just an electric screwdriver like this or similar:

But a regular drill is more ideal.

Yes, absolutely, I have the Milwaukee equivalent and it works very well for this purpose. Just make sure you select screwdriver mode instead of drill or hammer.

This Ryobi drill is a regular drill, with drill (maximum torque), screwdriver (selectable torque) and hammer (pulse action) modes as well. It will work perfectly well for assembly.

Thx. I’ve been stocking up on tools lately. Now have the hammer drill, impact wrench, extra batteries, but still want something like that just for basic assembly and the odd bit of work/maintenance.

Honestly, if you have the compact drill, you're better off using that - with the multiple batteries you already have - instead of investing in another platform. I used to have an battery-powered screwdriver a long time ago, but once I got a cordless drill I never used the screwdriver. Rather than duplicating what you already have, you can put the money into a tool that covers a different use case.

I'm sure the hammer drill have drill screw option. So that should be fine

Agreed, I also found my electric screwdriver to be more of a nuisance. I didn't use it often, so when I did randomly want to use it the battery would be dead. I just use a screwdriver or if needed, my compact drill on low speed and torque. Got rid of the electric screwdriver and have never missed it.

A hammer drill is perfectly fine for furniture, just set the clutch to the lowest torque setting that will drive the screws in all the way, and no more. If the holes are pre-tapped, then make sure that you thread the screws in by hand first, to make sure that they're not cross-threaded.

Some amount of chuck wobble can be normal, especially for cheaper drills, but it varies quite a bit from model to model, and even sample to sample. If it's severe, you can try a replacement.

The drill has a clutch feature for driving screws, so should be fine as long as there is clearance to use it. But yes do not to use hammer unless drilling into concrete.

Same here. I tried a 3inch bit and it was quite noticeable, then tried the same bit in my 12v makita impact and no wobble at all.

What's the torque specs on this impact? I assume this little 1/4 in drive cannot do wheel nuts?

Impact drivers aren't for lugs, no.
