      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.

      Excellent screwdriver

      My wife purchased this for me. Previously I used another brand but this tool is much better because it has a bigger handle and more bits plus it's a Craftsman! I use this tool everyday and I liked it so much I bought another one for my tool chest in our garage.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Decent Ratcheting Screwdriver

      This screwdriver is not bad. The ratcheting does not feel very smooth or substantial, but it gets the job done. It is very large to accommodate the bit storage in the handle. The price is reasonable,as it is made in America. Overall I would recommend the screwdriver.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Looking for a magnetic bit driver, this may or not be the one for you.

      I was slightly disappointed in the quality of this tool. The ratcheting "switch" is not a positive click. I was also disappointed in the fact the extra bits are in a very cheap holder that has no store spot on the tool. The tool does have a place for bits in the handle but, not as supplied with this tool. Very disappointing for a Craftsman tool! All this said it is still pretty close to what I was looking for, I just remember when Craftsman tool were the BEST.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      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.

      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.
