I am looking for the best reasonable priced smithing screwdrivers you can find.

I bought a $15 kit from Wallyworld which is "OK" but would like to find something with better quaility steel for may be double the price but not much more.

The bits in the WW special seem well made but I have already damaged one trying to pull a screw. (you would think the driver would be harder than the screw)

Buy Snap-On or Mac tools if you want good stuff. Go to either web site and you'll find a directory to find the route driver for your area. Then just call him and figure out a place to meet. They are lifetime gauranteed and worth the $$$.

Grey also carry the same warranty. The old addage " Ya GETS WHAT YA PAYS FER" definately applies in this instance. Can't beat mac or snap on either.

For gun smithing good quality screw drivers is a must. Chewed up screw heads detract from the looks of a nice firearm big time. That's a pet peave of many gun smiths I've met.

Spirithawk I do have to agree with you there. I feel there are three necessities in a good gunsmithing screwdriver. One is it has to be a hollow ground tip and the other two are fit and fit. If it doesn't fit the slot either make it fit or don't use it.

Chapmans makes a good set and are available(last I heard) from Brownells. Believe it or not, some of the best and toughest screwdrivers that I have found are Mastercraft from Canadian Tire. Fred
