Topic tags/keywords: question

I’ve probably got 50 or more screwdrivers (slotted and Philips) and am wondering who makes a good set. I’m thinking of getting rid of what I have. About all I can find is negative on Harbor Freight sets.
Thanks.

I like all my Craftsmans, and if something happens to one, you just take it back for a new one – no questions asked. However, I also pick up those cheap HF sets when I get a coupon for them for free… great beaters to keep in the car, tool box, kitchen drawer, etc… and since they are free, if I trash one, I don’t really care much (and grind them down into a lathe turning tool :)

Cheers,
Brad

Klein. Not cheap but not expensive either. Great tools.

Do a google search for “screw driver for wood screws”. Lots of inserting stuff comes up.

Here’s one.
