The PB Swiss Tools Twister ratcheting screwdrivers that I asked you about yesterday – they’re not $150, they’re ~$66 for the shorter one and ~$70 for the longer one. I could only find the sets in my searches, and they’re around $150 each. A reader turned me towards a UK source, and using the shorter model number I found the bare screwdrivers here in the States.
I still don’t know if it’s worth testing out and reviewing $66 and $70 ratcheting screwdrivers. Plus $10-15 in shipping fees.
Would you be interested in such a review, now knowing that they’re not actually $150? Well, the sets are still $150 – but many people would probably just start off with the ratcheting screwdriver and use the bits they have.
I know why PB Swiss Tools’ screwdriver bits command such a high price – they’re made with ultra-high precision, but not everyone needs to spend an extra ~$80+ for (20) bits and a case to hold everything in.
Given that these ratcheting screwdrivers by themselves are more in range of Snap-on and other industrial and automotive brands’ offerings, I’m less inclined to whip out the credit card to buy some test units. Maybe I’ll buy an extra for giveaway purposes to help make the most of the shipping fees.
Anyway, let me know. $66-70 is still a lot to pay for ratcheting screwdrivers – I’m usually happy with my ~$30 models – but maybe these drivers are sweet enough to be worth it.
What do you think?
And while we’re at it, how much is too much for a ratcheting screwdriver?
