Hello guys welcome to Tool Talk, I'm Ben Curry from Electrical Innovations in Derby, you want to check out any of my previous videos, I've reviewed the Bosch hole cutter set, the GSB 10.8 from Bosch, I've reviewed this DeWalt multi tool, and today I'm going to talk about some screwdrivers that I've... And there's a couple of different ones here.
Obviously as an electrician you use tonnes of different screwdrivers over your time. This is probably the trusty one, everyone uses the 5.5mm or the 4mm screwdriver. And the reason I'm liking this one at the moment from CK is because it's got this narrow shank up here which is quite nice.
What you find is if you've got something ... say you open up a box like this and you've got a screw hole in here, like you've got that one there and you have to get it down the hole to tighten it up. Sometimes your fatter screwdrivers don't fit down the hole, and that's a bit of a narrower one.
Also some makes of drivers for some reason, have a narrow shank like this, which is really susceptible to snapping with a wider head on the end. When you put the big head into the large screw and give it a lot of torque, it's just waiting for it to be snapped. These don't do this, they follow the length down, and it keeps the same width as the head until about 50mm down it opens out into something thicker. That can really take being twisted.
I've got a set of these and they've been really good so far, however one thing that I'm really struggling with, and I'm hoping you guys who are watching at home can help me out on this too, is I'm really struggling with a decent PZ2 driver. So just the standard posi, this one is an uninsulated one so all you electricians will be cursing me but it's about the best one I've found recently.
My old favourite used to be the Stanley one, again uninsulated, the long reach on it lets you really, really get some torque on it and the ends of them seem to be a bit more reinforced so they last longer.
Unfortunately the CK ones I do not like at all, and I find a few of the insulated types have the same problem, whereas this is a Wera one, it's a 355PZ and it's fantastic, still doesn't beat the Stanley version, that's been the same blue and grey handle for years, but I can't seem to find them anymore. They've changed them all to fat nacks, and they just, I don't know they just don't seem as good. Not really as effective as the older ones.
So that's the screwdrivers I've been using, like I say thanks very much for watching, check out my other review on Expert Trades, and hopefully I'll see you again. This has been Tool Talk, I'm Ben Curry, thanks for watching.
