I PROMISE you, Your knuckles will LOVE you if you buy this.
After all the cheap screwdrivers that strip and rust and are just junk, I took the plunge and took a sip of the "SnapOn Kool-Aid" You know those rusted screws in oven ignitors that are a bear to remove? No more!!

The other neat thing about it is, it is ratcheting AND you can interchange the shafts. Just an amazing screwdriver. But here is the bad part.

$70.00!! So if you get it, DONT LOSE IT!

I have this same screwdriver (except mine's all black without the snazzy green trim). Love it! Even more than my battery driver. And the ratcheting action is smooth, light, and fine so it even ratchets with screws that are already kinda loose and in tight places. Awesome tool!

Frigidaire has corrected that problem my drilling slightly larger holes in the bearing assembly so the screws go in easier.

Tech line finally got sick of hearing all the complaints about this problem.

I just run the new screws in and then back out of the part   before installing. Works great.
