Recommended Posts

In a drawer in my tool chest...... flat blades have handles handles to the left and philips/posi-drive have handle to the right so I know what screwdriver type i am looking for, small at the front going to larger at the back.

No I don't have OCD I just hate raking through a messy box for tools.

I do similar, sorted for size. The JIS drivers are at the the front, as they are used most.

2 drawers in my cabinet, one for flat the other for cross head. I then have a little plastic container for the whackable shaft through the handle type ones, that lives on the shelves.

Most of the spanners I have access to are on the internet.

Stiff as you like, from base to tip, you can really go at a slot with some force.

Hex and torx are in another drawer similarly laid out. Small to large are front to back and hex on the left and torx on the right.. 3/8” drive hex and torx also live in that drawer.

I don’t have OCD honest.........

In one tray in the toolbox.

Along with every other tool I need for the bikes.

In the dedicated foam infill panels that fit perfectly in the dedicated drawer of my tool box.  I've stopped collecting an array of random screwdriver for badness, but I keep a few mongrels hanging around for the perpetration of heinous crimes. When they are not in the box, I know that they are missing and they should be on magnets fixed to the edges of my main work bench.

Well that was the plan anyway....but, as we know, good screw drivers are a close relative of 5mm Hex keys and 10mm spanners and have the ability to dematerialise and then rematerialise in hopelessly random points of the whole of your Tom Cat style roaming environment.

If in doubt of where a missing one might have gone to, I enter a Zen like Trance and seek for any new vibrations in the cosmos....like under the bonnet of the car or behind the washing machine.

In the process of duplicating tools. 

Exhibit A = that which I already have. All the essential tools are just bunged in a kriega bag. It goes where the car or van goes. Tip it out, all of it, grab the thing you require in seconds.

Exhibit B = tankbag tools. 1/4 inch ratchet & various sockets, about 5 spanners and a set of Allen keys. Goes with whatever bike I'm riding. 

Exhibit C = tool chest in the stable & chest of drawers. The wierd and heavy shit. Breaker bars, angle grinders, balljoint breakers, spare bulbs, cables, Allen bolts, blahdeblah. 

The intention is to get duplicates of all the essential stuff I have in the kriega bag and tankbag and have them in the tool chest as well because I'm lazy and can't be arsed to shift stuff back & forth etc. Meh.

A couple of drawers in my roll cabs. One draw for flats, one for Philips / Pozi. Old, worn, abused and fairly 2nd hand looking ones. 

Another drawer for a small group of new, best ones.

Another drawer for my sets of JIS. 

Another drawer for multiple sets of 3/8th hex drive tips.

Damn. I paid a hell of a lot more for mine but they came from Japan so the customs invoice told me.

Oh don't worry....I have almost no need for JIS screwdrivers as I'm quite unlikely to need to use them....The fasteners  would get replaced at the drop of a hat, but I still need them in my life, just in case.

Please be aware that the second round of this purchase will involve a dedicated set from Koken at eye watering expense. But, I now have some Beaters for defiling shitty japanese shit.

:eat:

That should set off the purists...
