Cool Tool: The Spiral Ratchet Screwdriver (Yankee Screwdriver)
Just look at it. Glorious. It has everything a man wants in a tool. I'm a sucker for neat tools, and this one takes the cake. Can you imagine working on a project and whipping this bad boy out. Imagine the stares while everyone watches you school them.
Aside from the obvious superiority of the spiral ratchet screwdriver, you also have interchangeable bits, which allow you to swap from Phillips, flathead, or the new torx bits (torx bits are really great, I recommend them for future projects - you can buy torx screws most big box retailers)
Note: Some older Yankee Screwdrivers use different bits from the normal ones. These Yankee Screwdrivers should use the common, 1/4 inch size.
No matter what your application, the spiral ratchet screwdriver will fit your needs. They can be used to screw something in, but flip the switch, and they will unscrew too!
