As an employee at a large online tool retailer, I get to see many odd tools get pitched to us. One of the more interesting ones that I was recently contacted about is a high torque screwdriver. While it’s not earth-shattering, it’s certainly interesting.
As you can see, there is a simple flip-out “T” handle. This allows for a larger area to grip, which results in more torque. But the toys don’t stop there. You see, this thing is available as a standard screwdriver or a racheting model. Stubborn screws can come out easily AND at record pace. Very nice.
While I won’t be ditching my Makita cordless drill any time soon for this, I can certainly see keeping one of these in the glove box or in the drawer for those times when I need a little more leverage without all the power of my drill/driver.
I’m looking for any comments based on experience with these – are they as nice as they look? If you don’t want your comment published, just say so and I’ll keep it off of the blog. But this certainly looks cool and I’d love to hear from anyone that’s used one.
