WHOOOOO! It's nice. I agree. But, no where near that nice. She's in a class all by herself.

I have a couple sets of screwdrivers and 3 sets of nut drivers. They have yet to fail me.

What do you find wrong with them...don't open paint cans efficiently?

Klein were my first set of screwdrivers when I started doing electrical work. I quickly realized that for the price they are garbage.

My most commonly used screwdriver is a 1/4" standard cabinet tip. I've snapped 3 Klein and they weren't warrantied. The rest of them strip easy, wear out fast or snap easy.

My Mastercraft 60 piece set for 20 bucks is better than the Klein screwdrivers.

I now only have Wera and Wiha in my toolbag, all insulated. Whia makes the best tips, wera has better handles and bit holders.

Klein is an electrician's Snap-On. They started their company making side cutting pliers. Their pliers and cutters are excellent, I've had their hand tools in daily use for over 10 years, I can't say enough good things about them.

Their other stuff is just re-badged crap...and the screwdrivers are atrocious.

My Klein screwdrivers seem to wear out faster that any other also. I have only snapped off Klein and Crapsman screwdriver tips, and at least the Crapsman are easy to warranty.
Most of my hand tools are Snap-on, Stahlwille, and Hazet.

I agree, not only are Klein the worst screwdriver ever made, they are relatively expensive.

Re: New Tool I Couldn't Say No


I think I saw them at Billows.

I don't own any. I do have a bunch of Klein. I too use the little slotted screw driver often.

I bought two off set screwdrivers, that are supposed to spin screws in and out quickly. I never use them.

Re: New Tool I Couldn't Say No


The wiggy screwdrivers have very limited uses, faster to just use a drill.

I know, right.
Seemed like a good idea in the store.

I have several and I rarely use them, as the screws I'm trying to drive always seem to have just enough "friction" to keep you from spinning them freely.

I use my Bosch pocket driver for just about everything.

Re: New Tool I Couldn't Say No


An HVAC friend of mine had a pretty cool DeWalt electric screwdriver. If you turn it slightly clockwise it tightens automatically, if you turn it slightly counter-clockwise it loosens.

He was looking for another battery. Apparently it only came with one
