Nova Scotia Mike Posted September 5, 2011 Share Posted September 5, 2011 Howdy, You all seem like a handy bunch. I'm looking to upgrade my tool collection a bit and the first place I want to start is at my screwdrivers. Over the years, I've cobbled together a mismatched collection of screwdrivers that I can seem to use to get whatever job I need done in most cases, but they are of lesser quality and are showing their age. So, what makes a great screwdriver great? I almost gave in to an impulse buy yesterday in the hardware store as they had a 75 piece screwdriver set on sale for 60% off ... I backed off at the last second realizing I don't really know what qualities to look for in a set to end up with a great set. With 75 pieces I figured there'd be a lot of crap in there that I'd never used. Related, it seems like most Jap bikes I have/had use Phillips head fasteners that have a little "+" indicated on the head. Is this a special sort of Phillips head? I think I knew the answer to this question at one time, but excessive substance abuse over the years seems to have purged that info from my receding memory bank.
