Here's most of mine. I have maybe a dozen more spread between my truck and the rest of the house.

My screwdrivers are in the other thread.
These are my nut drivers... on the right, painted, wooden handled CKs in imperial sizes.
On the left, no-name metric I shouldn't have bought. They're cheap rubbish. I'm replacing them with something of quality, but one at a time as I find them in car boot sales. I have four or five now, but they weren't around (apart from the plain wood in the middle) when I took this pic.

Merk, you actually have some Cman?! I'm surprised you didn't PS those out. J/K

I do have a question, I have noticed in a couple of pictures from members a driver bit storage where did you guys get those? I made one out of some wood & painted it...but the one pictures would work a lot better.

Thanks

I'll bet he uses them same as I do; to send 'em in as cannon fodder on dirty or corrosive work.

You get 4 pieces about 2' long. I love it, all my wrenches go in them, too.

...well, everyone's gotta start somewhere. I'd recommend the purchase of a slotted driver next time around; you're getting a little heavy on the Phillips stuff.

Damn skippy. Personally, I think for starting out, the $30 or whatever it is 24ish piece craftsman screwdriver set is a good deal. They aren't high end, but I used them for 5 years as a mechanic, so they do work.

Amen to that, the ol red, blue, clear and stinkies did all my work for many years before I finally got a few Snappys and others. I second that!

I know a lot of people aren't fans of these ratcheting types but I use the he// out this old Matco. Oringinally I had a longer one with the old maroon handle but I dropped it on concrete in the winter and the handle shattered. This was the closest thing to it on the truck when I warranteed it.
Skeletonizer,

The red wood handled stubby looks like the drivers that came in Porche 356 tool kits.

Does it say made in Germany?

If so, could be Hazet, and worth a boat-load of $$$ to a vintage Porsche owner.

No markings at all. The weld at the tang is nasty so I am guessing 'ole Ferdinand would not have put it in one of his cars.

I seem to remember either my Dad or Grandfather having several of these in different sizes. Both of their collections were Craftsman and SK heavy with a little PROTO and Snap On. They both worked for Chrysler. Probly my Grandad as my Dad had a boatload of the red and blue Craftys.
