    I have found multi tools just don't fit the need of normal, single purpose tools.
    Not even close.

    I hate when I have to agree with you.

    I like the Lutz 6 in 1 it's cheap dependable and disposable. It doesn't hold up well to abuse.

    If it doesn't go easy, you are not using a big enough hammer.

    Now you tell me. Just picked one up yesterday.

    I haven't had good luck with Klein. The only reason I bought it was it was the only multi screwdriver the parts house had and I lost the last one. I have had the flat head snap off a couple of times trying to loosen the lugs on contactors.

    My personal fav is Husky. You can beat on those things and they don't break. And they have a lifetime warranty.

    I like just having an apprentice unscrew it. They're always so eager to do it anyway. They are the new blood of this industry that has grown leaps and bounds since the 60's. Don't like the Taylor law that says we can't strike because we work in powerplants and hospitals. Big AFL-CIO failure me thinks. But what the hell, every1 is gonna be happy now in the union to have our healthcare watereddown to share with everyone else. Isn't that what it's about. One big happy government family. Ask any russian engineer who works in the power plants here in the USA. They'll tell you the truth. Why you think they came here? Funny how we got these clowns now who want to change everything now after 40 years of them experimenting with socialism all throughout the different government programs that have done no imrovements on society, but rather increased teenage pregnancy rates and crime rates and drug addiction and everything else that has corrupted society. Say goodbye to your nice healthcare plan that lets your kids just go see a doctor, visit the dentist, get glasses, be able to go to the emergency room without fear of going broke for $5 co-pays. Pretty soon we're gonna be lumped in with every1 else who didn't work as hard the last 20 years. Welcome to the age of the Freeloaders. ....oh yeah this was about screwdrivers. sorry I digressed. I still stand by my Klein 11in1. But I am sad that my last blue Vaco reversible screwdriver broke. It was cold and stupid me used it to pry an oil sump cover plate. The blue handle just shattered. Can't remember when they stopped making those.

    Crescent makes a nice 4 in 1 but I prefer my Snap-On ratcheting with all the various bits stored in the handle.
