Long shaft drivers are difficult to put away since most drawers aren’t that long. (We keep them in their own drawer in the roll-away.) They’re not really useful for much in the way of normal projects such as close car work or woodworking, either. But when you need one, you need one.
The long shafts can reach screws 22” down and keep your hands out the way. Magnetic tips keep the fastener on the tool as well.
Seriously, a set should be on your “to get” list if you don’t already have some. Street pricing starts at $10 for a set of two Phillips and a common.
