    Vaco used to make a good one, but I think they are owned by Klein now. I use one of the Klein 10 in 1's for the light duty first response stuff and have a mixed full set of Klein and Craftsman heavy duty drivers in my toolbag for the real work.

    Here's a link for the Klein replacement bits: http://www.mytoolstore.com/klein/32477.html

    They only have the original replacement bits. I wish they had different ones available. I don't think I've ever used the square bits and would like to replace them with a 20/25 torx bit.

    I do use some weird tools for a hammer though, if it saves me a trip to the trucky poo.

Works well for that. The 4 in 1 screw drivers won't take any abuse at all. I know, you aren't supposed to abuse your tools.
    This is what I use to start holes for using snips.

    I like these. The bits are as hard as h**l and work well in my drill and Dremel driver.

    That's my favorite multi-tool. I still keep long 1/4 and 5/16" magnetic nut drivers. Every other tool has a specific purpose except the speed square and that thing does everything else...

    ammoniadog,

    Just think, you now have 4 extra 5/16" and maybe even 1/4" nut drivers!

    I love this screwdriver.
    They also make a HVAC version. Instead of a #3 robertson bit they have a schreider(sp) remover.
    Also the shaft can be used as 1/4" and 5/16" nutdrivers.
    Not a fan of the stubby version.

    I laugh when I see a tech bring out a multi screwdriver, then I say real techs have the proper tools to do the job go get your tool bag and stop wasting my time.
