    Sunflag Screwdrivers

    Stahwille spanners awesome!
    I got an Sp rattle gun, i;ve been told its the most powerful one out of all the techs in the workshop lol.
    I've also got a 3/8 cordless Snap on drill that thing is incredible too!

    SfS,

    Can you please go into more detail on why you feel Sunflag screwdrivers are the best?

    Are any of the below characteristics of Sunflag screwdrivers make them the best?:

    - little wear on the screwdriver tip after months or years of use

    - the durability of the handle on the Sunflag models "888" and "215" tang-thru screwdrivers after many hits with a hammer

    - the resistance of the screwdriver handle (acetate handle on the model "215" and soft plastic handle on the model "888") to oil, gasoline, diesel, transmission fluid, and brake fluid

    - the effectiveness of the square shank on the model "215" to transmit additional torque to break loose a cross recess or slotted fastener with an open-ended spanner

    - the comfort of the handle when used for many hours at a time


    Thanks,

    Dave

    Welderrrrrrzzzzzzzzz anyone?

    im in the market for a little unit for home.. something i can can use on ally and steel.

    I'd like to get a MIG just because its so fast to use.. but im better with a TIG so .. yeah, opinions?

    what wold be really cool is one of those 3 in one units that are MIG, TIG and a plasma cutter..

    under the 1k budget.

    sidchrome 3/8 ratchet blows hard.

    get sp motorsport ratchets instead.

    ^ Seriously? i hate SP tools especially there ratchets, Snap on and Koken make the best ratchets cause they have a lot more finer teeth so they feel nicer...

    Did someone say trolley pole breaker bar? It usually scares the bolts loose before I even get a chance to use it. Woolworths branded. Had it since 15. Very durable.

    Hate SP ratchet or anything that has rubber/plastic handles.
    I'm loving my Minimax ratchet sets. Bang for buck
    Also have Beta tools, Knipex, Britool, Stahwille and Strap On, all stored in White International 9 drawer hehe

    Non of the tools failed on me just yet, so I'm happy.

    I've had good experience with minimax and kingchrome

    Yo Doug how much did you pay for your SP tools?

    kinchrome.

    make some good stuff, there double bladed flip knife/razor is good, but the fasteners in it break way to easy.
    fell to pieces after an hours usage, had to re drill the hinge pins and put flush hex head bolts in there... pain in the ass.

    Smith & Wesson 24/7 is the go....
