Milwaukee Tool has come out with a new 10pc precision screwdriver set, model 48-22-2612.
Milwaukee makes precision screwdrivers? Yep, and they’re pretty decent, too.
In my experiences thus far, Milwaukee precision screwdrivers are strong, comfortable, and with well-shaped tips.
Here’s a look at some of the tasks you could use these screwdrivers for – basically anything that involves smaller screwdriver tip sizes and narrow shafts – smaller fasteners, circuit board work, computer upgrades and repairs, electrical control panels, terminal blocks, and all kinds of other such applications.
From what I can tell, this kit is basically a larger assortment of Milwaukee’s current precision screwdriver sizes, not that there’s anything wrong with that. It’s a very good value, too, at 10 screwdrivers for $30.
This set comes with the following screwdriver sizes:
- Phillips #0, 00
- Slotted 1/8″, 3/32″
- Torx T6, T7, T8, T9, T10, T15

It doesn’t look like this set comes with a storage pouch. If that’s important to you, consider their 6pc sets, priced at $23.50 each.

If you just need a couple of mini screwdrivers, Milwaukee Tool also has a 4pc set with Phillips #1, slotted 1/8″, 3/32″, and 1/16″ screwdrivers.

Here’s a link to what we said when Milwaukee first came out with precision screwdrivers:
The item number is missing a digit in the text. 48-22-2612.
Thank you! Sorry, I don’t know what happened there.
The first two are useful. They are my main go-to’s for electrical work. They are long enough and small enough to get on those little tiny screw terminals and strong enough that the tips don’t just break off or round off unlike most screwdrivers of this type.
I take that back. The older set was useful on the first two. This is brand new. Not sure what I would need all those Torx heads for.
Needs a Phillips #1. People (including me, before I learned better) reach for #0 for things that need a #1 nearly 100% of the time.
Since a #1 Phillips was the first thing I looked to make sure was included, I have to say that I wholeheartedly agree with you ToolGuyDan!
Phillips #1 is absolutely a must. Most precision sets skip the #1 and usually go up to a #00 or #0.
If I needed a set I’d strongly consider them. Where are they made?
I have a fairly old set but I don’t recall the name brand. They were given to me and have SS shafts with black tips on the larger sizes. I like the color bands for ID – nice touch.
Probably China or Taiwan, I don’t remember.
