Milwaukee’s newish tri-lobe-handled screwdriver set is usually a good buy, where you can get a 6pc set for $20.
This 8pc set is a seasonal “special buy,” for $20.*

* You can read more about these screwdrivers here, in Ben’s roundup. There, he says:
You can find the 6 piece and sometimes 8 piece with square driver sets on the shelves at Home Depot for $20 and $22 respectively. Unless a local supplier carries them locally, you’ll probably have to go online to find the 8 piece with ECX or the 10 piece sets, which run $25 and $30 respectively.
So, my first thought was “cool, you’re saving $5 on this set compared to the regular price.” But if its regular price was $22, then that’s not much savings.
Well, either way, $20 for 8 screwdriver sizes is a great buy. I’ve been using some of these Milwaukee tri-lobe-handled screwdrivers, and they’re pretty good. Having the sizes marked on the ends are convenient, and the handles are comfortable to me.
I think it’s a good deal, but how good? I don’t know. Good enough of a bargain to want to share and put it on your radar, I guess. Check it out if you’re in the market for a common-sizes screwdriver set on a $20 budget.
