I have set similar to those made by Snap-on. I call them Palm screwdriver. I also have one that has a 1/4" ratchet into it also Snap-on.

KG Good tools last a lifetime and are a worthy investment. Sorry for flippin' you crap about the adjustable wrenches! They usually do more damage then good.

Here are a few of my Gunsmith Tools!
Have had this for years when I got out of Army and tried gunsmithing for a living!
Image
I just bought these and found them to be "The" BEST! Very well made and ground perfectly! Tempered to be tough and durable!
Image
Got this for all the #2 Robertsons(Square drive), a Canadian invention, on the Crosman guns! The red handled one(C).
Image
Also buy a set of Allen wrenches of good quality! These are some of the best we use at work!

These are absolutely top shelf as far as Allen wrenches go, I have torqued some of these beyond 30* (due to force applied/required) and nothing...no cracks. These things are tough as nails, as they say "Gorilla proof tools" :lol:

EDIT: KG you should grab yourself a Mastercraft "tool set" when they go on sale at Canadian Tire (usually from 30-70% off), they are not the best quality, but the lifetime warranty makes up for that :wink:

Don't need anything special, just those plastic screwdriver bit caps or whatever you call them? I do will only use them to remove my 22xx stock in a pinch, those plastic handle are perfect because they are light and compact enough to put on a key chain if I drill the plastic out.

Merely buy the proper 'driver handle' that comes with a variety of 'tips' inside the handle - problem solved. I've personally never seen those little plastic 'handles' anywhere - must be a 'Back East' kitchen tool.

Ooooh I love those mini ratcheting wrench! I'm a locksmith so I like all those cool little tools. I have all the weird bits that are used in public places and the long screwdriver sets with the small triple zero bits. I could spent as much money on tools as I do on airguns.
I wasn't nicknamed Doctor Gadget for nothing (I'm not a cop and inspector was already taken, we called our locksmithing teacher professor gadget so the teacher and the other students called me doctor gadget and it sticked.

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

Well for Christmas I used to get Craftsman tools! I have two huge rolling 5' X 5' tool boxes with Craftsman, Snap-on, Matco, Brownell's and other gun specific tool kits. Just a few woodworking tools...tablesaw and 12" sliding chopsaw and two routers. Would really like a planer and standup drill press!
