Oliver,

Does PBswiss have multiple lines of bits? If so, what are the ones you prefer?

I saw the dates on the previous posts and for some reason didn’t check the date on his. I hate when my excitement gets the better of me!

In that case, those of you that are familiar with PB Swiss, are their screwdrivers the same quality as the Precision bits? Or are those two different lines?



EDIT: cleaned up my typos that I didn’t previously catch.

Sorry, can't help you there. I am a Wera and Wiha person myself. Haven't tried this brand (yet).

There was a Project Farm review of screwdrivers pretty recently:



Whia, Wera, PB Swiss, Craftsman and Milwaukee came out on top.

Old thread, but ok.
Agreed, the Snap-on ratcheting handle was the best I ever had/felt for that type of thing. I didn't use it for everything, preferring to have a "proper" tool, rather than a magnetic tipped one, most of the time. That takes space though, which I why I kept the Snap-On one in one of my install bags. It was a hold-over favorite of my truck mechanic days, had it for 30plus years, until it got killed in the fire.
Virtually none of my woodworking tools are old, save for the Makita reciprocating saw from the set. It happened to be at home the day of the fire.

I love my PB Swiss ratcheting drivers - awesome all around and very smooth.
