Read everyone else’s reviews and was surprised. I’ve purchased these things 4 times in the past few years and probably have around 15. They’re great for easy screws and torquing things, plastic handle keeps me insulated from twist pots while working circuits, and there’s a magnet or clip or something inside, the phillips/flathead part never falls out. Only down side is you can’t put lots of torque through them (not for disassembling things) as the diameter is narrow, but for casual work they’re great.
I’ve ordered a number of these over the years, and the quality lately seems to have gotten worse. For one of the recent acquisitions the shaft just falls out all the time. There is no more pressure fit to hold it in place. For another when I try to pull the shaft out to flip it around the small white plastic piece comes out with it because the fit is too tight. It’s a handy little screwdriver for cheap, but it’s also a bit frustrating. (The ones I bought years ago seemed much better quality-wise.)
