Went in CEF in Launceston today and on the counter was this fancy electrical screwdriver kit in quite a small metal tin. There was about ten types and because there was only one handle they took up very little space. The handle clicked onto the screwdriver shaft with a very convincing click. It was released by pushing a button on the handle. It all had a very high quality feel.

I cant remember the name of the manufacturer so I could look it up on the web to see if it was cheaper anywhere else. The name started with a K and sounded German

Does anybody know who makes these.

Did it look like this?



If so it is made by Klauke and is called the KL300IS Smart Box

You can get it online for around £45

I know a few people who own it and are happy with it but I much prefere my solid one piece Irazola screwdrivers.

Thats it eskimo !!

I'm quite interested in the idea that you see if any are missing at the end of the day. I'm always losing screwdrivers and tapes. So last time I went cheap and bought a set from Wickes. Big mistake firstly there wasn't a slot head that properly fitted the majority of terminal screws and the steel quality was very poor. This was very noticeable on the small drivers.

Well if I get some jobs I've quoted for recently I might treat myself.

I have had the Klauke set for a year or so, they are good for little jobs but big jobs id rather use seperate drivers cos if you leave the handle anywhere u dont need to walk back for it.
