So I’ve been traveling on the other side of the planet, and can’t bring my tools obviously. I managed to bring my Wera screwdriver and a bit kit with me, and promptly put them to good use.
I had to do quite a few repairs, mostly pulled out screws from particle boards. To avoid further blown outs, I had to drill pilot holes for screws. I’ll have to say, I’ve never appreciated power drills more after drilling many holes with a screwdriver.
I’ve always thought the handle on Wera is strange, but the more I use it the more I find how much thought went into it. For example, the tapered tail was perfect to pinch with two finger reaching a difficult position and push at the same time so bit doesn’t cam out. It wouldn’t be possible with a barrel shaped handle, the screwdriver would fly out the window quickly along with much cursing. The bayonet was quite helpful too, retracted it would fit into places only a stubby would do, and extended it works just like a regular driver.
Can’t wait to get back to my power tools though. 😀
