Default found some really nice precision screwdrivers for cheap!

I was out at home depot today and I ran across some precision screwdriver sets on sale for 3 bucks a set they are made by husky
one set is a 28 piece with a ratcheting T handle the other set is a 30 piece with straight ratcheting handle
even if your local home depot don't have them on sale they are still priced pretty good and look to be very high quality. time will tell I guess.
just thought I would pass the bargan along

Bought the 28 piece, about $10 with shipping. It'll replace my other cheap mini screw driver set!

no they are not an over priced set from Brownells but will work just as good.

Take one and insert the blade into a vice, then turn it as hard as you can with one hand, if it breaks, keep them away from your guns. But if they don't break buy another set, because "Brownells" is awefully proud of the things they sell.

Never mind, just checked your link I thought they were Hollow Ground set.

Don't vice test them, the ratchet handle will probly bust.

Cheaper than dirt has "Gunsmith" screwdrivers at a better price than Brownells. Your blade screwdrivers need to be hollow ground to prevent damage to the screw head.

dang dudeif i have to put that much torque on a screw something is bad wrong

a little trick i learned many years ago from an old gunsmith was to lightly hit the screw once with a impact driver using a 8 ounce ball peen will never have damaged screw heads and back right out with ease.

Well I guess it depends on how strong you are, or how brittle the screw drivers are. I used to be an electrician in another life and I broke quite a few dicount screwdrivers, untill I switched to Kline hand tools.
