Scott wrote in with a heads-up that this Husky 3pc insulated screwdriver set has dropped in price, from $10 to $7.
I bought a set of these drivers from Home Depot’s holiday tool gift center, but had not put them to use yet.
I just skimmed through my daily HD SALE email (that I’m sure you received as well) and it looks as though several items are starting to drop in price. I was looking for an inexpensive VDE driver to more safely tinker around the house and had my eye on the husky$10 set- it just dropped to $7. I opted for a ~$12 Felo bit holder instead and the grip is amazing. Again, Felo would not have been on my radar had it not been for your site and I am appreciative as always.
I haven’t spotted any other notable holiday tool gift center items that dropped in price, but might take a trip to Home Depot later to see if new signs are up.
I actually own a Felo Ergonic insulated screwdriver set, currently $26 and change on Amazon, that I bought a few years ago when I noticed a price drop. I haven’t used it much, so why did I buy the Husky set? I wanted to get a feel for Husky screwdriver quality, and the price is too good to pass up. Besides, this allows me to keep one set in a portable tool box, and the other at home for more regular use.
The Husky set seems to at least be worth its $10 price. $7 is an even better bargain.
The Husky drivers have very grippy handles, and each has a built-in wire stripper, with 14 and 16 gauge slots.
You get a slotted screwdriver (1/4″), a Phillips (#2), and a square (#2). The sizes are clearly marked on the ends of the handles.
Sorry, you’ll have to foot it to the store, online shipping isn’t available for these drivers right now.
Remember: Insulated screwdrivers like these are designed to provide a level of protection when working on electrical components that have been de-energized. Sometimes a situation is not as safe as expected. Insulated drivers like these are generally not designed for use on or around live equipment. Maybe I’m mistaken, but this is what I’ve been repeatedly told.
