Ooo,I like that. Rotate #17

very clever,never seen one like that before.

I like the idea of being able to drive the bit from the handle.

Its on my shopping list for this evening along with a new 1/2 drive torque wrench as I'm fed up not having NM as its so old.

probably not super accurate anymore either due to its age even though it's never been dropped and I have always unwound any torque settings before putting it to bed.

I've just bought one of the better quality ones from halfords (with 10% discount) and am very pleased with it. Much, much better than my machine mart one.

#17

I find these occasionally handy. I have a 45 degree and 90

The little ratchet in #17 gets you out of a tight spot, but it isn't the "nicest" tool with regard to feel, if anyone can recommend a better quality alternative I might be tempted as I use it more than I thought I would. I would also like similar in a 3/8 drive if it exists as i suspect the torque limit of the 1/4 drive  one might be quite low.

I really like my Milwaukee 3/8 cordless ratchet. Bit of a luxury buy really as you think they are only for repetitive work but in actual fact they are very handy. Mine is the compact head version, it makes doing up or undoing bolts at arms length a very simple task. A cheaper and I'm pretty sure no less capable version is sold by draper as a stormforce cordless ratchet

I am also a fan of "aviation spanners" - double ended ring spanner but twice as long as normal

Screw holding screwdrivers. These have been very handy for fiddly jobs
