  • Buy Now
  • Evaluation Type: Workshop Tools
  • Was everything in the box required?: Yes
  • Comparable Products/Other parts you considered: TEKTON 2841 Everybit ($34.55 USD) or 33pc Security Bit Set ($6.29 USD) + a standard screwdriver set (approx. $15 USD)
  • What were the biggest problems encountered?: Not really a problem, but I did not know the name of each bit so I had to Google some of them. It would be nice to have a chart included with the set.

  • Detailed Review:

    It's the only screwdriver set you need

     

    This screwdriver set is an incredible value for money.

    It cost less than $22 CAD ($15.30 USD) and contains everything you need.

    As a comparison, my current old rusty kit was purchased 20 years ago for $18.00.

    Because I am always missing the bit I need, I purchased a lot of bits separately.

    So my old kit plus the bits I purchased must have cost between $30 and $40.
