I have two sets of Wheelers just like Jackofalltrades03. One on the bench and one in the range bag.
I have some grace precision tools (the ones with the wooden handles). Higher than usual upfront cost, but when I once had a problem with a bit that bent they not only sent me a replacement no questions asked, they also asked if I wanted to send any bits that were not completely sharp for replacement. They keep that up, and if I don’t die early it promises to be worth the cost.The only precision ground ones I have ever had were a set by Grace. Not really worth it. I use the standard and thin bits (European screws) from Brownells. If you go British, they call them "turnscrews" instead of "screwdrivers."
Wish I could get the old army guns for 50 lolBut I don't have any real collectables . . .all my pals say they're all "just a bunch of old army guns."
"Just an old army gun . . ." I've heard that a few hundred times.
Once, when I was jobless, and broke, a guy I grew up with, a Plumber, gave me a job helping him . . you know, going and fetching stuff, holding a pipe, etc.
My buddy was talking to the owner of the house, an old guy, must have been 50 years old or more, the subject of guns came up . .. .
Owner says: "I've got an old army gun . . ."
Friend: "Yeah? What do you have?"
Owner: "Oh, it's just an old army .45 I brought back from the war."
Friend: "You want to sell it? How much you want?"
Owner: "I'll take 50 bucks CASH for it."
It was a genuine WWII Remington Rand . .
This was about 1997 or so . .
Just an old Army gun!
I've got Chapman sets I've had from the 80's without issues. I got this through work that's a big step up from Chapman Super micro ratchet set
I think what you are referring to are what us old folks refer to as "hollow ground screwdrivers" the phrase refers to the way edges are formed. If you google the phrase you will find screwdrivers from brands like Wheeler, Forster and Brownells.Seem to recall years back seeing screwdrivers which prevented (or helped) one from marring the firearm?
Do they make these, or was I dreaming?
I'm sitting here with a Chapman No. 9600 set that I have had since 1978. I have broken one tip which the Chapman Company replaced upon return. Maybe that heat treat goes awry occasionally. (I've had that happen!)
