Usually the first thing that I have to reach for is some sort of screwdriver, whether it's a Torx, Phillips, Flat, etc. Right now I use a Klien rubber handled phillips that doesn't grab that well, a Craftsman flat blade that is nice, and individual Torx and square bits in a small plastic case with a hard plastic screwdriver handle that is uncomfortable. Just wondering what everyone else is using; ratcheting, 6 in 1, individual bits in a case, a whole set of screwdrivers? Below is a link for cordless drivers, but wondering about manual drivers, Thanks!
Who here uses a cordless drill/driver for dissasembly/rea...

Is it just me, or does anyone else keep losing parts to klein 11-1? Countless times I reverse the socket expecting a reversible bit and lo and behold...aint nothing there. Maybe i should get the williams ratcheting since it appears to use standard (replaceable!) bits and use the klein for its excellent built-in nut drivers.

One tool lost in 8 years? That's amazing. Maybe I need to get your toolbag (more than likely, it's your organizational skills I really need)

.15 plus years of service.....Snap-On, of course.....


Just got one last week.....man is it smooth. I also got this jewel http://www.amazon.co...22606081&sr=8-1. German engineered but the Snap on is a tad bit smoother. The Wera beats the snap-on in bit storage. The body of the wera has a spring loaded hidden compartment that secures each bit. It opens up when you press the button on top of the handle. Really cool. For those that wonder why i bought two high performance ratchets? i dunno...because they're there? Well, lemme see...do you ask your neighborhood drug addict why he bought two packs of stuff instead of one? No? So leave me alone then! :lol:

Have had that exact same driver for almost as long. Also the first tool I reach for. Great minds and all that! :thumbsup:
