RoadTest: Cool Tools: 105 Piece Standard Screwdriver Set

Author: vlaine

Creation date:

Evaluation Type: Workshop Tools

Did you receive all parts the manufacturer stated would be included in the package?: True

What other parts do you consider comparable to this product?: 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.
