Ordered one of these after seeing another tech using one. Will let you know what I think of it after I get it and use it for awhile.

This driver contains 3/8-Inch, 5/16-Inch and 1/4-Inch nut drivers, no.1 and no.2 Phillips, 1/4-Inch and 3/16-Inch slotted, T10 and T15 torx and no.1 and no.2 square recess...

Anyone else have one or ever used one?

Is the quality of the tool any better then the cheap ones you see at local hardware stores?

Good to hear, I just checked the amazon page I ordered mine from and it states, "Made in USA".

Have tried cheaper ones in the past from local hardware stores and through I liked the idea of the tool they just have not held up for me for very long.

I have that same Megapro screwdriver. Have had it for about 5 years. Best one I ever used.

AJ, With that Klein 11-1 and the Leatherman, a man can fix a lot of things!

Just keep track of the bits not easy to replace if loose one. Also the bit holder is the 1/4" driver sometimes they flare out and you can not flip the tips around into the handle.

Yes and it's much better quality then any other version I have ever tried.
It has a bit of weight to it. Feels good in the hand. The shaft and metal sleeves don't feel tinny and cheap.



and much to my surprise the bits snap into my gear wrench perfectly too!

I have a Klein 6in 1 stubby but I prefer my "auto loader " screwdriver as it is faster to change bits.http://www.sears.com/search=craftsman%20autoloading%20multi%20bit%20screwdriver?levels=Tools_Hand+Tools&autoRedirect=true I removed the bits and use square drive and others. Would not give up my Klein magnetic nut drivers for anything.

I have 2 of those Kleins - Had for at least 4 or 5 years.   Electrical supply house right by my house sells Klein tools.    I also have Klein wire cutters,  strippers,  and severl other tools by them.    I keep one of those by my dash along with a small set of channel olcks,  Needle nose and flashlight.      I usually walk into a call with these in my pocket to check out a machine.     The other tools are in my box.   NO sense lugging a heavy toolbox in all the time.

I'm really liking this 11n1 screwdriver. At first thought I may miss not having magnets on the nut drivers, but I don't anymore.
Wish they made a belt holster for the thing.

I just wish the short double end bits were available separately. I also wish the Torx was T20 & T25 instead of T10 & T15. I do a lot of GE stuff and the 10-15 is too small.
