Wanted: decent set of screwdrivers

I got a Craftsman set of, I dunno, a gazillion screw drivers for $35. To be honest, I wish I'd paid the extra money for the Craftsman Professional stuff. The handles aren't ergonomic at all, they kinda dig into my hand after moderately heavy use. The CP ones kinda remind me of the Snap On ones I used for work at the tire shop, as far as handle design goes.

But, to be fair, the quality seems pretty good and I did get a gazillion of them for about $35.


I hate signatures.

Craftsman Professional Screwdrivers are the Top Craftsman Line.
But they are not cheap, here is a set of six slot Drivers

For more sizes and including Phillips drivers there is a 16 piece larger Set

If you can do without top quality, HFT has a set that I would not be afraid to buy for everyday use.

Over the years Sears has had many names attached to their stuff. I believe I remember JC Higgins as one. At one time Craftsman was free replacement, Sears was not. I am not sure Sears ever manufactured anything, I thought they contracted out most everything. All I know is I can go into Sears tool section and see more "Made in USA" than almost any other store.
