I recently posted about Wera’s new Kraftform precision screwdriver set. It’s a fantastic set, but if you’re looking for a more reasonable priced option, Oria has a couple of sets that are work considering.
Oria sells a 60-in-1 precision screwdriver set for $13.59, and it covers almost every type of small screw size or style most consumers will come across.
Oria Precision Screwdriver Set 60-in-1 set
I purchased a mini screwdriver set from Oria a few years ago and it’s been invaluable. Whether it’s changing the battery in my Suunto watch, adjusting sunglasses, or changing the batteries in various kids’ toys.
The 60-in-1 set includes 56-bits covering almost every eventuality. All of the bits are packaged in a nice compact case that still provides easy access. The screwdriver is well proportioned and includes a swivel cap end allowing you to apply pressure while you spin the driver with your finger tips.
It also includes a flexible screwdriver shaft, allowing easier access to those hard to reach spots.
If you’re not a fan of blue, they carry the same set in different colors.
Oria Precision Screwdriver Kit 76-in-1 set
They also sell a larger set that includes an anti-static wrist strap, tweezers, SIM card ejector pin, triangle plectrum, plastic spudgers, and metal spudger. This kit might be useful for tasks such as swapping out hardware in a PC.
And yes, I did have to look up what a spudger is – apparently it’s a tool for separating pressure-fit plastic components, such as a phone case. You learn something new every day!
Stuart’s Note: A metal spudger can be used as a sort of thin wedge (but can be delicate), while plastic spudgers are useful for soldering tasks and other such things when you need a tool for part manipulation. Here’s more about a 3M plastic spudger I’ve been using.
Xiaomi Wiha 24-in-1 Precision Screwdriver Set
If you’re looking for a more familiar brand, this Xiaomi is worth a look, with the tools made by Wiha. Not only does it include 24 of the most common bits, it’s also a very pretty set! I’m tempted to buy it just based on that alone!
Stuart’s Note: This is a very nice set. I ordered one from a different seller, but there are a number of different listings seemingly for the same product.
Inside you’ll find a slightly smaller range of bits, but it’ll cover all the main use cases.
Do you have any precision screwdriver sets you’d recommend? There are bound to be some Black Friday 2019 deals on entry-level precision screwdriver and tool sets. Are you tempted to watch for any such deals?
