These are awesome! 12 for $8.50! –

This innocent-looking 1″ dia. flat steel bagel is really a very versatile pocket screwdriver. What makes it so effective is the range of edge thickness (from 0.030″ to 0.090″) created by a ramp formed on one side.

It replaces dimes, quarters and table knives, all of which have width and strength limitations. We sell them by the dozen because they make excellent gifts, particularly to those whom you want to discourage from using cutlery for household repairs.

These screwdrivers should be in every kitchen knife drawer and pocket. Guaranteed to be the only screwdriver in the shop that will snugly fit the cap iron screw on a plane.

    Isn’t this just a smaller version of a spark plug gapper?

  • Phil_McCrackin

    Who knew my spark plug gapper could double as a screw driver? Genius!

    Yep, readily available from any auto part store. I like the four-way flat screwdrivers as well.

    You guys missed the $8.50/dozen part, right?

  • btravis72

    No, I didn’t miss it. For $0.99 I have a spark plug gapper/screwdriver. I really can’t think of who I’d give the other 11 flat head screwdrivers to. Don’t most things use Phillips head or need some type of security bit anyway?

    So I saved myself $7.50 + shipping & Handling.

    :D
