Yes, I know this is trivial, but when I do something dumb it irritates
me. I am (ever so slowly) tearing down my smashed metal shed, using my
cordless drill with a nutdriver bit, and a Fuller 6-in-1 screwdriver to
keep the screw head end from turning. Using that because it has a nice
fat handle, and shaft is short enough that I can reach around the
corners, and 'see' with my fingertips to get on the screws.
All that worked good for about an hour, and then I fat-fingered the
thing, and it flew and bounced. Found the handle right away, but no sign
of the bit. #2 Phillips one end, wide flat blade on the other. It was
only a five-buck screwdriver, but I LIKED it, and it fit my hand well. I
have a couple dozen driver bits, but they are all 1/4" hex cross
section. Does anyone sell 5/16" hex shaft bits? I've been looking as I
run my other errands, but no joy. And nobody around here carries Fuller
(other than pliers) any more, that I have found. Yes, I checked vendor
web site, and the handle style I have is apparently no more, replaced by
something that looks (aside from plastic color) just like the
made-in-China 6-in-1's that Menards sells. I have a couple of those for
the minimalist car glove box tool kits, but the bits are not the same-
magnetic, not the little ball bearings.
I know, if this is the worst thing that happens to me this month, I am a
lucky man. But it is just eating at me, that bladeless handle staring at
me from the tote tray.
