I was in the need of a small right angle screwdriver that would work in a tight space. Found this at Harbor Freight for less than four dollars. This simple little tool isn’t fancy, but has a nice feel and the ratchet appears to be durable. The set comes with six different heads. Thanks again, Harbor Freight!

Thanks for the information. It looks like it will fit a very tight space too.

Bought mine from Lowes, probably a little more than at HF. Still it has proved irreplaceble at times. Great little tool.

Does it use standard 1/4” bits?

- MrRon

Comes with a set of six bits, but yes, they measure 1/4”

I’ve had one just like yours for many years and as you say it comes in handy quite often. I use it with my standard bits. Good review!

Oh yes a very handy piece in the tool kit
If your a pocket hole man see if you also use your Robertson bit for it
and any hard to get to pocket hole places are over come.

Yours apperas to be a craftsman or perhaps the first HF version. What I like about the new HF version is the addition of the thumb drive for those extremely tight places!

I’ve also had one for years. I find it indispensable a couple times a year. Not sure where I got mine, local hardware store, I think.
