We talked about Husky insulated screwdrivers yesterday, and there was brief mention of this Felo insulated screwdriver bit holder. It seemed worthy of a closer look.
There are as many variations of insulated screwdrivers are there are of regular screwdrivers. You have individual screwdrivers, interchangeable screwdrivers, where there’s a single handle – or sometimes multiple handle types – and swappable shafts, and there’s this Felo bit holder, and I’m assuming others like it.
This seems like an inexpensive and space-saving way to get a bunch of insulated screwdrivers in your toolbox. All you need to keep or carry is this bit holder, and then some standard 1/4″ hex screwdriver bits.
But here’s the big question: is there a downside to this? Well, aside from the typical differences between using individual screwdrivers and multi-bit screwdrivers or bit holders? I can’t see any, but I also don’t have a lot of experience when it comes to insulated tools.
The Felo 518 series bit holder has their typical palm-fitting handle design. According to the product description, it’s got a 2-component handle with a soft outer grip. The handle is also designed with anti-roll features, notably flats towards the front of the handle.

You’ll need to supply your own 1/4″ hex screwdriver bits. It looks like the driver comes with a single Phillips bit.
