    Draper VDE Torque screwdriver bit

    Hello fellow electricians I was wondering if any of you have seen a VDE bit that allows different screwdriver heads to be placed in the end (If that makes any sense to you) I dont really want to keep buying different type heads when I can just swap them out from my little socket set many thanks.

    Which screwdrivers?

    I seem to get through so many 4mm slotted drivers. I currently use Irazola/Bahco. Is there anything tougher out there?

    Domestic Why did my voltage tester just explode?

    Hi, I'm new to this forum, but it seemed like a good place to find out why my voltage tester (screwdriver type) basically just exploded when I tested it on a mains voltage supply (back-box of a fused spur switch).

    I worked out what a neon screwdriver is for

    Contrary to popular belief they are not fishing weights, neither are they a substitute padlock for the garden shed. No. A neon screwdriver is designed to be the perfect size to remove layers of paint from slotted screws so they can be removed with little or no swearing.
