We recently had a clear out of our garage and I was amazed at the amount of tools that we have accumulated over the years, so much that I think we could set up our own DIY store. This is one screwdriver that I found hidden away in a tool box.
If I am honest, I am not sure where we purchased this one from however I have just had a look online and it seems to be available from most DIY and hardware stores and is priced from around £2 up to £4.50 depending on the size.
This is a slotted screwdriver (I only learnt the different between a slotted and a Philips head last week) and has an 8mm head and looks very much like a normal screwdriver and is made from Chrome Vanadium which has a shiny finish and it is topped with slightly rubbery handle. The handle is black and red in colour and is shaped hexagonally yet the edges are smoothed which means that the screwdriver sits comfortably in my hand and it is really easy to grip. To the top of the handle is a little hole so that the screwdriver can be hung up when not in use (I must say though, we have never used this feature as our tools get left everywhere).
The screwdriver has quite a solid look and feel to it; the metal shaft sits securely in the handle and doesn’t move around when in use. I like the fact that the handle is insulated as it gives that extra piece of mind when using for electrical work such as changing a light fitting of socket.
The tips of the screwdriver as really sturdy, when use to turn a screw, it sits securely in the hole and turns really easily, I have used cheaper screwdrivers in the past when the tip just slips out and ends up damaging the head of the screw.
We have a few products now from Silverline and what I really like is that they come with a lifetime guarantee so I have always got that extra piece of mind should anything go wrong or the product develop and fault in any way.
I would recommend this screwdriver, it does its job well and is a reasonable price therefore this gets 5 out of 5 stars from me.
Thanks for reading.
