This is absolutely my favorite hand tool for dealing with screws. Mine carries an extra endorsement label for Tim Allen Signature Tools, which is no longer marketed, but the basic tool is still available. I’ve had this one for 15 years and it still works great.
This is a shaft that accepts double ended snap in bits. The handle is a larger diameter and the end pulls open to reveal storage for the bits. There are 7 bits. Each bit is double ended providing 14 driving tools, and the 15th is the shaft with no bit inserted which is a 1/4 inch hex nut driver.
The handle is 1.5 inches in diameter with a textured hard rubber grip. This makes it really easy to hold on to and get good leverage for really tough screws. And the best part is that the end of the handle is smooth and can rotate freely. This means that you can put the palm of your hand on the end of the handle to apply pressure and then turn the handle underneath it with your other hand. This not only makes it easy to remove screws, but reduces the stress on your wrist when doing a lot of hand screwing.
Power tools are fine, but I hate getting one out for small jobs. But sometimes it’s hard to get out screws by hand that are stuck. With this driver, I can usually get anything out that doesn’t have to be dug out by breaking away the material around the screw.
Mine came with:
Phillips 1 and 2
Phillips 0 and 3
Square 0 and 3
Square 1 and 2
Flat Slot 3-4 and 5-6
Star 15 and 20
Star 25 and 30
Other sizes available are:
Pozi 1 and 2
Pozi 0 and 3
Star 27 and 30
Flat Slot 2 and 4
Flat Slot 4 and 6
(I need to put these on my wish list!)
I use this ALL the time. The only thing I don’t like about it is that I would rather have more of the flat slot size choices and not the star bits, which I hardly ever use. I really need the flat slot 4 and 6 size.
I only paid $9.99 for this on sale, but I see that it now retails for $17.95
