    I keep a set of these, usually in my pocket. I don't know how I ever got by without them.

    I've had my eyes on those for a while, now.

    I've dealt with too many universal joint type thingies that bound at certain angles, though. Do these do that or is the angle limited to a point where it cannot bind?

    For every day stuff, I carry 6" x 1/4", 5/16", 11/32", and 3/8". I'll probably take the 11/32" out of the tool bag. The only time I ever used it was on fractional HP condenser fan motors, and I haven't done one of those in at least 4 years, lol.
    What would you call them then?

    What do you call the nut driver bits and the nut drivers with handles?

    Thats why I call them nut setters so you dont confuse the two.

    I have been using these for over a year! I just about can't function w/out them. I keep an 11/32 Nut Driver (Notice Proper Use of Name ) in my instrument case, for motor replacements. The 1/4 wobble goes in my impact and the 5/16 wobble goes in a 6" Irwin extension in my Rear Guard Pouch, Best tool belt ever! Makes climbing thru scuttle holes possible.

    Wiki Definition:
    The device your wife uses (when she finds you cheating on her!) to cut off, flatten and then shove your nuts down your throat.

    They don't bind in the slightest. They do sometimes snap into the straight position on you when you're trying to manuever them onto a screw head with one hand. As they wear in that isn't as much of an issue.
