Ok, your catching on….that’s right, this week we are picking out some basic screwdrivers.
Now not for “nothin"…as they say….this was informative but not that interesting…None the less…we deliver what we promise and once again we are on the hunt. Frankly I never knew there was so much to know about a flipping screwdriver…but then again I usually only use one when I don't want to break a nail or ruin a fresh manicure….did someone say spoiled? Nick set me straight…(well, at least I least I let him think so)
Different Screws, different screwdrivers. This is something that was completely foreign to me as a young single gal living alone in my 20’s. I had one large straight, slotted type with a broken handle and when that didn’t work I went straight for the butter knife. Oh how times have changed….…married to a handyman and couple of drawers full of screwdrivers later. I would imagine we have a screw driver for literally anything (if there is something that we don’t have one for…I don’t even want to know what it is!)
So, the 2 most popular types, the slotted and the phillips head. There is also a star shaped one…luckily I have never had the opportunity to see such a screw.
There happens to be an excellent solution to this quandary. They have very reasonably priced sets with all different types of heads and handles They also have kit with a universal handle that has interchangeable working ends Check them out:
My pick? Neither….call my husband. Nick’s pick for the self-sufficient home owner. The Lutz. Not only does he recommend it....he has used one for years.
