Everyone should own a few stubby screwdrivers; they fit into the tiny spaces your standard ‘drivers won’t. But what happens when you’re short on space but need to really crank down hard on a screw? Normally you’re screwed — unless you have one of these. Craftsman calls ’em “Super Stubby” screwdrivers: a standard-sized handle with a stubby shaft and tip.
TM reader Paul recommended these via email recently, and it reminded me that we have more than a couple of these in the shop. We find ourselves reaching for ’em regularly — especially on auto projects. These totally fit into the “gets you out of a bind” tool category.
The standard and Phillips models come in many of the screwdriver kits available at Sears, but if you already have all the other ‘drivers you need, you can snag a 4-piece set for $10. (They also offer a 4-piece Torx-only set for the same price.)
