Here we take a closer look (literally) at ACR (anti-cam-out) screwdriver tips. Read More

This weekend I visited a few major tool and home improvement stores for a sneak peek of their winter holiday tool gift displays. As expected, the two Home Depots closest to me had most of their displays up already. Similar to last year’s selection, there were a few power tools in the mix, but there was a […]
Long-time reader Joe sent us a comment recommending the Lutz 15-in-1 ratcheting screwdriver. Joe writes: I was on vacation and had to assemble a ton of flat pack furniture and picked this up at the local Ace. I have used ratcheting screwdrivers before and they always seemed clunky and cheap. This little screwdriver made the […]
When we suggested Williams’ hard-handled screwdrivers as part of our Father’s Day gift guide, I ordered a 5pc set for personal use. In the three months since then, these drivers have easily become my go-to drivers. While not my absolute favorite drivers (a title reserved for my PB Swiss screwdrivers), these drivers come close. They’re […]
Klein’s 10-Fold 10-in-1 screwdriver/nut driver is a multi-bit driver that folds into a compact and pocket-friendly package. Bits unfold and lock at 180°, providing a straight easy-to-turn screwdriver.
Wiha recently released new screwdrivers based off their SoftFinish cushion grip drivers. These new Measure-Up screwdrivers feature inch and metric measuring scales on the shafts of the drivers. Initially I was skeptical that these new drivers were just another “gimmicky’ tool but I was soon proven wrong, as you will see in the following hands-on review.
Over at Amazon, this PB Swiss screwdriver set (7244) is on sale for a hair less than $30. The set features gold plated shafts and black Multicraft hard handles, and includes two Phillips drivers and four slotted drivers. This set is normally priced at about $70, making it a steal at $30. You can also […]
Last week we talked about some of our favorite screwdrivers and asked about your favorites. Now we’re going to talk a bit about our go-to drivers. You know, the ones that are up front, within easy reach on the bench. For speed and production driving, I grab my SnapOn ratcheting driver (see the above photo, driver on […]
To finish off our first Favorite Screwdriver Week, we’ll take a look at Wera’s Kraftform Classic screwdrivers. Wera offers several tiers of screwdrivers, including the Classic, Comfort, Plus Lasertip, Insulated and Chiseltip handled driver styles.
Continuing with our favorite screwdriver week, let’s take a look at Facom’s Ergotwist Combination screwdriver set. I have a 16 piece set of these Ergotwist drivers, and consider it to be my all time favorite. The handles are of a bi-material design that features an impact resistant top and softer grip for comfort.
Continuing with our Favorite Screwdriver Week series, take a look at SK Hand Tool’s tri-molded screwdrivers (#79600), which I use everyday at work. The drivers in this 5-piece set have ergonomic tri-molded® handles that are extremely comfortable and easy on the hands. Tri-molded handles are formulated from three types of materials to provide impact resistance (even at lower […]
In yesterday’s post, Alex mentioned that when preparing to adjust his headlights he had an overwhelming number of screwdrivers to choose from. So which did he use for the job? One of Wiha’s Orbit screwdrivers. These drivers have pivoting tips that allow up to 20° of offset, useful for hard-to-reach fasteners.
After driving around and blinding everyone on the road, I decided that it was time to adjust the headlights on my truck. When I opened the screwdriver drawer of my toolbox, I was momentarily overwhelmed with the many tools choices ready to tackle the task at hand. We all know how important it is to have the […]
I’ve never really been a fan of offset screwdrivers – they just didn’t seem too convenient to me. Until now. There was a fastener I needed to reach in a really low-clearance area, and none of my usual low-profile drivers fit. None, except for the offset Phillips driver that sat unused in a drawer for a few years […]
Amazon has gone crazy with their PB Swiss tool pricing. Some of their product offerings have been priced ridiculously low lately (50% discount or more!). These items often jump back up in price after a single purchase is made, which is why we haven’t been mentioning these deals. BUT, we did find a great deal that […]
These Williams hard-handled screwdrivers are made in the USA and offer great ergonomics. The best thing about them, though, is that they offer great performance at a reasonable price. What more could one ask for?! We found that Amazon has the best prices on these drivers. If anyone finds a cheaper alternate source, please let us know! Williams 5 […]
Remember when we told you that Milwaukee was introducing new hand tools and promised that more were on the way? Well, they’ve now added an 8-piece screwdriver set (48-22-2008) to the new product lineup. This set will include 2 ECX bits (#1 ), 2 Phillips bits (#1 & #2), 2 slotted drivers (1/4″ & 5/16″), […]
This awesome T-handle driver features a 1/4″ square drive body with spinner and T-bar, all machined from solid titanium! The tool is made in the USA by Tom of Artistry in Titanium, and will probably endure several lifetimes of use and abuse. Just look at those comfortable looking grooves and finger grips! Fantastic!
While not as amusing as the $100 billion Estwing Fireside Friend Splitting Tool error, I spotted this 4″ Gearwrench screwdriver selling for nearly $100. But wait, that’s at an 82% discount from the list price of $532.50! And there are only four left!! Better hurry! Oh, Amazon… Gearwrench 80007 4″ Phillips Screwdriver via Amazon
