Park Tool’s p-handled wrench set is the de-facto starter set for bicycle maintenance. Featuring a convenient Bondhus balldriver and a high-torque straight hex tip, these drivers are highly versatile, and can be used on bikes or around the home and shop.
Normally I hate, hate, HATE cheap crappy bits, but you never know when one might come in handy. Afterall, a poor quality bit is still better than no bit at all when you really need one. There are a few sets that caught my attention over at amazon:
Right now Amazon has some great pricing on Bondhus BriteGuard Balldriver L hex wrench sets. Bondhus’s long length 13 piece SAE set covering sizes 0.050 to 3/8″ is currently priced at about $13 ~$21, and the 15 piece metric set covering sizes 1.27 to 10mm is priced at $17.20 ~$20. If you don’t need as many sizes, […]
Over at Amazon, a 3rd party vendor Industrial Supply Company is selling 5pc Williams hard handled comfort grip screwdriver sets for about $27 plus shipping and handling. While they may look rather unimpressive and plain, these drivers are said to be phenomenally comfortable to use, and are often compared to Snap-on’s unfortunately discontinued hard-handled drivers. […]
County Comm’s Screw Key is a set of two key ring sized screwdrivers that includes one Phillips driver, and one slotted driver. These mini drivers are constructed from heat treated and hardened steel, and have an industrial-looking black oxide coating. If it came down to a choice between these County Comm drivers and a Screwpop keychain tool, we […]
We recently found out about the Screwpop 4-in-1 keychain tool, which offers a bottle opener, #2 Phillips screwdriver bit, flathead screwdriver bit, and a 1/4″ nut driver in a tidy key-sized package. If you consider that the flathead bit can be used as an impromptu pry bar, then the Screwpop is in fact a 5-in-1 tool. […]
The first ever MVT (most valuable tool of the week) award is actually shared by two tools – a Wiha ergonomic screwdriver, and a 4oz Vaughan ball pein hammer.
If you saw the title of this post and thought that we were going to talk about a traditional push-pull screwdriver, then we’re sorry to disappoint you. The New York Yankees just won the World Series, so we took it upon ourselves to mention a few Yankee-inspired tools, the first of which is a multi-bit […]
Voila – we’re giving away a Gearwrench 56pc ratcheting screwdriver set! If you recall, we’re holding a giveaway this month, and since the end of the month is nearing, we thought it’s about time to reveal one more prize. This is how it went down: we were at the store to buy one of these Gearwrench screwdriver […]
We’re about to place an order for a few new tools and wanted to share our selection and reasoning with you. First off we’re picking up Channellock’s 8-Inch Wide Adjustable Wrench (808NW). We spoke favorably of their extra-wide Code Blue version a few weeks ago, but could not justify a 65% increase in price for a 1/3″ […]
The PB Swiss Household Screwdriver is a cute flat head screwdriver with a 5.5mm tip, (right smack in the middle between 3/16″ and 1/4″,) and a very comfortable soft-textured “Swiss Grip” handle. With its useful tip size and truncated shaft, the appropriately named Household Screwdriver is well suited for many common driving tasks. With its small […]
Channellock recently announced a “new and improved” series of Code Blue screwdrivers and nutdrivers. Each screwdriver has a 3-sided handle grip, straight-thru steel blade, and a magnetic tip, while the nutdrivers have full hollow shafts and the same high-torque grip. The color scheme and grip design of these drivers look rather appealing – if the drivers feel as […]
Wiha’s 40 piece cushion grip screwdriver set includes just about every driver style that one could ever need. Wiha’s 3K handle style is comfortable, durable, easy to clean, and reliable. Similarly, the tips on these drivers are very hard, durable, and accurate. We have been using a smaller set of these 3K drivers for a few years […]
The PB Swiss Tools Insider driver is a pocket-friendly screwdriver that can carry up to 8 insert bits in a removable cartridge. Don’t let its modest size or appearance fool you – the high quality Insider is very well designed and can handle most manual driving tasks with ease. Take a look at our in-depth review of the […]
