Screwdriver stuff
« on: March 27, 2019, 06:19 PM »
Thought I would pass along some tools that I like that others might be interested in.

First up this t handle 1/4 inch bit holder by Felo. Quality construction and feels good in your hand. Strong magnet to keep the bit in. If you’re an old guy like me sometimes your wrist needs more leverage to torque stuff home.

Next is this kit from Wiha. Impact rated and a nice bit holder. The bits are in foam so they don’t scatter everywhere when you drop them [wink]

I had this one for a while and use it a lot.

Just picked this Wiha kit up the other day. A few more bits same bit holder but it also comes with a mini 72 tooth ratchet. Bit fit directly into the ratchet  with a strong magnet hold. Ratchet is reversible. Bits are impact rated. Slightly short than the previous kit. These aren’t as secure in their holder so don’t drop it unless you want to crawl around on the floor.  [tongue]

Oh forgot, kit also comes with a 1/4 inch socket adapter too.

Wiha 30747 - Very specialized, but works really well for engaging terminal screws on outlets and switches.  It has a combination of Phillips and straight blades on the tip so it engages well with very little effort and won’t cam out.

I followed Ron’s lead on this one and it is a dinner winner. It’s a much more complete selection compared to the Festool bit box.

For limited space environments I have a Snap-on ratchet that I will add to this thread once I find it. It’s basically a 1/4” hex ratchet that’s only .250”-.300” thick. The 1/4” hex bit will be depth limited on one set of hexes, however rotating the bit one hex will allow it to pass through the hex drive unimpeded. Difficult to explain...easy to see when the tool is in-hand.

Snap-On standard length for me. It's their old stand-by, they DO make other versions of it like short, long, and T-handle, but for me, this is the one I still own and use. I own bright colored versions as I've learned that the original black one was too easy to lose in low light areas.... [embarassed]
 Tips store in the handle, you can easily add a few to the screwdriver over what it comes with. Easy on the hands/wrists, the reverse knob is right in front, and it's magnetic at the end, so that's handy too. I freely admit that Cordless Tools have largely replaced these for me on a daily basis, but I won't sell mine, they're just too nice.

I've been buying Weras from Chadstoolbox.  They seen to carry everything Wera sells and the service is outstanding.  Several of there screw drivers including the offset (WERA 05051030001 KRAFTFORM KOMPAKT PISTOL RA COMBI-DRIVER WITH MAGAZINE) one have the bits stored in the handle.  Wera Kraftform Kompakt 62 Bitholding Screwdriver and Pouch Set, 33-Pieces IS ANOTHER GREAT SET.  I buy Wiha's one meter folding rule that lives in my carpenter pants pocket and the just ran a 25% off sale so I bought their soft head hammer set, handle and a variety of heads in a metal tool box.

Try this Snap-on ratcheting screwdriver, as it does everything the one you linked to does, and more, as it has multiple positions other than straight. I own both types.

My original set of Snap-on screwdrivers were all black as that is all they offered at the time. I have lost almost every single one, but all the orange, green, and red ones I own are still in my tool box. Maybe I just improved over the years about not loosing tools. Either way I am a firm believer in anything BUT black.

  I've seen that one but as I stated, it's so rare now for me to even drag any of my screwdrivers out anymore since I use Cordless Impact Drivers all the time in the place of the screwdrivers unless I need to grab one.
 So, I can't justify buying any screwdrivers, just bits for my cordless tools...   [embarassed]

The Wera laser tip Phillips head really do grab well and work as advertised. I have several. Definitely a favorite hand screwdriver.  I don't have a picture handy.
