I definitely see how this handle shape would be excellent. I may give the PB holder and bits a shot, and also get a set of cheaper Wiha fixed drivers. Sometimes it's nice not to have to fiddle with changing bits.steelcity16 wrote: ↑Wed Mar 04, 2020 9:21 amI am a big tool junkie and have everything from Snap On to Wiha to Wera to Witte to Felo to Vessel to Bonhus to Harbor Freight! But for drivers and bits I have found PB Swiss to be the best there is. Expensive but totally worth it. Definitely go for the bits and bit holder. Much cheaper to replace a bit than a screwdriver! And the Crosshandle Driver is perfect for knives with loctite. It allows you to turn the driver while applying constant downward pressure so you will likely never strip a screw if you do it right.
That's a big reason I want a new set. The cheaper folding set I have doesn't allow for much downward pressure since the wrenches are on pivots.
Are you me?
Awesome, Julia! I'm sure the new set will bring you joy. Nothing like a good set of tools!JuPaul wrote: ↑Wed Mar 04, 2020 11:39 pm

+1 on what Dazen uses, I have the same set up; I added a Winchester firearm screw driver bit set (Walmart, though it is sturdy) as it has very thin flat screw driver bits that fit very nicely between stubborn scales when I'm doing scale updates/swaps.
The Torx kit that I got from Benchmade at their booth at the 2004 BLADE Show has really served me well over the years which is quite similar to that one you displayed. But I'm always up for improvement. I would even like to see some type of a multi-tool set up with all those Torx bits in the set up. I've heard from a friend that the SNAP-On tool trucks also offer a Torx kit similar to that one as well. You can not go wrong with Snap-On even though they are a bit pricey.
Yes this is the set I use and never had a stripped driver, compact and cheapWright.88 wrote: ↑Wed Mar 04, 2020 8:31 amBONDHUS, 12632, T6-T25 GORILLA GRIP FOLDUP TORX TOOL SET https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000E7ZLHQ/re ... xEb5T613GH
I’ve had one of these for years and have never stripped a torx screw or any of the tool heads. It’s not the most ergonomic though if you’re using it often.
Also use a leatherman bit kit from my wave and extender which has worked really well.
