HELP! Lost favorite tool and cant find replacement.


I lost my 6 in 1 Craftsman screwdriver and cannot find it anywhere to buy. Does anyone know where I can find it to purchase it. Its the model that is just the black handle and you would turn the top to the screwdriver you wished to use there were six to choose from 3 regular and 3 phillips. It was not just the bit but when you turned the top to the screwdriver of choice a aprox 3 inch screwdriver would come out of the handle and move to the center of the handle and lock into place. Please let me know if anyone knows where I can purchase this tool.

This must be the 2009 version of it. Its close but not the same. I believe that this has just the bits but if I have to buy a new one it may have to be this one. I thought someone might have it like the websites that have all different kinds of things but not there either.

Did you look in Kmart. Since K mart was bought by sears, they do carry craftsman tools there. I have two of those screw drivers, and I bought one for my Dad at Kmart not to long ago.

I have seeen this driver in trade supply stores under a different name. Check there for a copy if you really want your old favourite. Also ask a Craftsman tool sales rep and try on SEARS.CA as our inventory may be different, including products codes.

Where I live we have a company called ONWARD CLUTHE that makes numerous brands of multi tip drivers for retailers. Search Retract a bit, select a bit, etc. Their original products came as nut drivers and green Cluthe 6 bit drivers with a swivel cap and great tips, or up to 12 bits, orange handle, but the steel tips were VERY good and so popular they began building private label retail brands years ago. I still have my original Cluthe after 31 years and several others around the house.

That said my favourite to use is a Snap On, ratchet driver I got at a junk shop. It`s fast, the cap never unscrews by accident... I THINK THERE`S AN O RING IN IT and you have great torque with the handle. Best versatility of all, magnetic, extendable, holds nut driver adapters, etc. Never seen a better one of this type
Search for one in the pawn shop or ebay. If you're lucky this one is a find and with tips you might only pay $40. Lifetime warranty goes with the tool.

Or upgrade:

Remember that thing they use to pop all the screws out of that elevator panel in Blues Brothers? That would be one of these.

Quick bit changes saves time but not as much time as getting the screws in/out at near-power drill speeds without all the noise. Not that I've ever even imagined why someone would want to rapidly unscrew stuff stealthily. I have two. The newer schroeders are lighter and have tighter action (made in Germany by a precision parts company) but I like the weight on the older Stanley Yankee I have (you can find these on eBay fairly regularly). I'll bet it would suck to get clobbered with it. Not that I've ever imagined why you'd wanna do that either but I carry the Stanley in my backpack. You can buy a cheap adapter for the Yankee from Veritas that will fit any standard hex bit. The Schroeder comes with one built-in.

I love my subcompact drill/driver but these guys are a hoot and a holler to use and a nice backup if batteries go sour. It's also the ultimate thing to whip out when you happen to have one on you and somebody needs a screwdriver.

I have one. I know it's at least 8-9 years old. Haven't seen them lately, but I really haven't looked. I mostly use my Klein 5-in-1 now.

If Jerry can supply the part number on his driver handle with a photo that would be a good start in your search.
I see that Craftsman now offers a ratchet type with dial handle for $20. The ratchet is a wristsaver. I use a drill driver most times but for the small jobs requiring repetion, like light switch covers, where the drill could slip etc ratchet all the way

The Klein 10 in 1 has 8 bits and two nut drivers in it, and is better quality than Craftsman ever thought of making. I have the Klein and the ratcheting SnapOn screwdriver, which is awesome (ought to be for $75!).
