Screwdrivers are more of a necessary evil in the shop than a tool about which to get excited. In today’s world you need to be prepared for a multitude of head styles. Standard, Phillips, square-drive (known as “Robertson” north of Lake Erie), Torx and Allen heads all might appear at any time. If you want to be prepared for all sizes and variations you could easily have a dozen tools.
The new “10IN1” tool from Milwaukee is a good alternative to a drawer full of drivers, and at a good price. The handle has a soft over-molded grip for comfort, and the reversing lever is close at hand without much chance of switching it accidentally. Within the handle is space to store six bits for different situations – a nice solution if you climb a ladder thinking Phillips and find square-drive when you get to the top.
