Today, in this third, and last, installment of uncommon nut drivers, we have the insulated and angled nut driver from Cementex.  It’s not articulated — it’s a fixed right angle, so it’s not bent to get into odd spaces. My best guess is that the shaft is bent to apply more torque.

Made in the USA, the double-insulated drivers are rated for 1000VAC and 1500VDC. The driver’s bent shank measures 4-3/4″ by 5″ and is sold in 7/16″, 1/2″, 9/16″, 5/8″, 3/4″ sizes. Cementex also sells angled short-barrel nut drivers in the same sizes. All the angled drivers retail from $52 to $56, but you can find them as low as $37 if you shop around.

    Good for sneaking around corners to tighten nuts.

    Who needs these?

    That appears to be a highly application-specific set of drivers, for a particular type of electrical equipment.

    The chances of those tools being useful in randomly-encountered shop conditions with close quarters situations is limited at best, since the overall shape and size is not compact.

    Now, a nut driver with a u-joint placed in the middle of the shaft, THAT would be interesting, and useful.

    For sneaking up on those nuts from around the corner, how about a flexible shaft nutdriver like these from Wiha:

    (not for hi-voltage work, obviously)

    The one in the photo above reminds me of a tire iron.

    the only thing interesting here is the fact they come in large sizes many many times have I wished for a 9/16th nut driver to help build unistrut racks and such
    but they just don’t seem to be around

    but other wise seems kinda useless
    tell them to straighten out and make some nice normal one
    in those sizes

    I remember long time back.. maybe more than a decade… One of those TV Infomercials.

    There was a Toolkit which had a driver where you did not have to twist your entire wrist. You just had to twist-(clock & anti clock) to drive the thingy.

    It also had a flexible articulated PIECE for driving nuts in hard to reach locations and angles.

    Any idea what that toolkit was called or if something similar can be obtained?
