I bought this screw driver at Sears. It is will made and can be used as a T-handle for stubborn screws. The screw driver does have draw backs:

  • It is not magnetic
  • Requires special tips.



I found a solution to make it into a great tool.

Home Depot, Sears: $6.99 - $7.99

The idea is to attach a magnetic bit holder to the screw driver shaft. The magnetic bit holders come differents sizes. Some are short others are long; Some have weak magnet or strong magnets.

I happen to have a couple of magnetic bit holders, in my tool box. There are different lengths and brands available. I decided to use the shorter one of the two, for my screw driver modification.




Harbor Freight, Sears, Home Depot: $1.99 - $6.99

I used my handy Dremel tool cut off about 5/8ths of an inch, from the bit holder shaft, so it would seat flush with the screw driver shaft.

This is what the magnetic bit holder looks like if I don't shorten the bit holder shaft.

You can use any glue. I used epoxy to glue the bit holder in place.

The screw driver converts into a Tee handle driver for extra torque.
