Good screw driver, bits are weird
I have a couple of bit types that I use almost exclusively and I haven't really used the ones that come with the driver. The flat head bits were oddly shaped and looked a little cheap, but I haven't use them. The driver itself is nice and the good thing about the design is that the ratchet has very little resistance so it's easier to work on a screw that is a little bit looser without spinning it both directions. one odd thing is that it doesn't click when it ratchets but it still works properly and this is probably part of the design to reduce load required to make it ratchet.

A neat novelty but overpriced
I saw this item on the Sears website and then saw it in person. When viewing some items online, it's often deceiving if you have nothing to provide a sense of scale. This item appeared great until I had the opportunity to check it out. This driver might be convenient and a bit of a novelty. That's however, is where the advantages end in my opinion. I would suggest that you view it in person before ordering it on good faith. This driver is MUCH larger than the photograph appears to depict. It is also constructed of a great deal of plastic. The soft grip is comfortable, but I would not expect it to hold up if your needs call for frequent heavy torque. In my opinion, this is NOT a contractor grade tool. I realize that it's not necessarily advertised as such. On the other hand, 25 bucks is a lot to shell out for a novelty tool that lacks the stamina to hold up under torque. You can purchase a far more professional screwdriver for much less than that. It may not be as convenient, but the convenience in this case is overshadowed by this huge and largely plastic tool.

USA made, very nice and very useful, must have!

This screwdriver is still made in the good old USA, has a nice thick handle and comes with all the tips you will need for most jobs. The tips fit into the back of the screwdriver, which makes it very compact without bringing along the little red bit holders. Ratchet works nice and keep you moving without readjusting your hand. Also has a nice grip and will not kill your hands like traditional screwdrivers when you need a firm grip. Must have for me, I have 2.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

For you to (drive) screws with!!

This makes the second one of these I have purchased (lost the first one, and then found it again). Love the ratcheting nature of it, or if you want a static screwdriver, lock it in place and turn to your hearts content.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

American made ratcheting screwdriver

I replaced a cheap ratcheting screwdriver with this one, and I can really can tell the difference. My old screwdriver had a drive direction selector that was easily bumper to the wrong setting, which is not a problem with this design. The large handle size does not bother me since it allows for organized bit storage. By the way, the red extra bit holders fit perfectly in several of the drill & drive sets, such as 64340.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very handy.

Excellent quality and very versatile. I needed screwdrivers I could depend on and something that wouldn't take up much room in my handy bag. This filled the bill very well.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great all around tool

I have owned this Craftsman driver for over a decade now and am very satisfied with its performance. I use this driver pretty much every day for all kinds of tasks, so I really appreciate its versatility in bit selection. The only drawback I have experienced is that the ratcheting mechanism seems to fail on me pretty regularly. I am now on my fifth of these tools & will be returning it for another one shortly. At the end of the day, in spite of my numerous returns, it is a great and useful tool and above all, it's a Craftsman.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
