Features to Look For in a Quality Screwdriver

by Bahco AU Industrial Writer & Blogger
A screwdriver forms an important part of an electrician, carpenter or a mechanics toolbox. It is used to turn the screws of different sizes and can be either manual or powered. A simple screwdriver is an ergonomically designed tool that has a handle and a shaft (made of tough steel) and a tip that is inserted into the slot of the screw to turn it in anti-clockwise or clockwise direction. 

Having a quality screwdriver is necessary if you want to get the job done well in a quick and convenient way. Based on the types of screw heads, there are different types of screwdrivers that are used to turn each and every screw. Poor quality screwdrivers may not be able to remove the screw and may lead to injuries. The shaft may break off or strip out of the handle leading to frustration.  

You can purchase a screwdriver set online from a reputed and reliable hand tools supplier that will assure you purchase the set of screwdrivers at a competitive price from the comforts of your home. Here is a checklist of some features to look for in a quality screwdriver:-

• Buy branded screwdrivers made for professional use 
Not all screwdrivers are made equal. Most manufacturers make two or more grades of screwdrivers and it is important to check out the features and distinguish among them. It is best to buy professional grade screwdrivers that will help you carry out your works with ease and efficiency. 
When you purchase a branded screwdriver with the chrome vanadium steel shaft and sandblasted or forged tip then this will provide you with long lasting service and a great value for money. 

• A quality screwdriver should have ergonomic handles and hardened tips
Whether you are looking for a ratchet screwdriver or Phillips head screwdriver, it is important to check that the hand tool is ergonomically designed and is suited for high performance and durable service. The cushion-grip handle provides the extra comfort while the alloy steel blade makes the tool highly resistant to wear and tear.  
 
• Buy screwdriver set online with different kinds of screwdrivers and multiple bits 
A set of screwdrivers will assist you with unscrewing or fastening screws of various types with ease. Your screwdriver set may consist of ratchet screwdrivers, Phillips head screwdrivers, hex head drivers, Torx drivers and nut drivers. These screwdrivers will ensure you turn different kinds of screws without looking for other kind of tools. 

• Check out all the features and ensure that the screwdriver is suited for your purpose 
Whether you require screwdrivers for the household DIY purpose, electrical works or precise machining, a screwdriver with insulated handles, long blades and strong magnetic tip will help you get the most from your tool.
Considering all these features and selecting a supplier that provides branded screwdrivers will help you get the best quality product/tool at a competitive price in a convenient way.
