I thought that this tool merited its own post

This tool is one of the best values out there.  It isn't one that you will use every day, but when you need it, you really need it.  For $9 you can buy a couple.  This tool is great on its own, but when you make tips for it, it really starts to shine.  That ratcheting action isn't smooth or strong, but it is one really important thing - tiny.

Low profile head fits even tight corners

I ground down an adapter to make a skinny narrow 1/4" ratchet

No comparison with the standard Craftsman ratcheting hex driver

It is little.  I brazed a piece of coat hanger onto this tip so that it couldn't slip through the driver

  2. I have looked at various tools to get into limited access screws or nuts/bolts. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Bostitch-BTMT72275-32-Piece-Bit-Wrench-Set/25440938?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222227019227742&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=40873163432&wl4=aud-310687321802:pla-78766137152&wl5=9018570&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=25440938&wl13=&veh=sem

    That is one of the better tools I have found. It has a fine tooth ratchet and it has a spring for bit retention. The spring allows you to grind normal bits to various lengths for different locations and still have them retained.

  3. These things are great. The Craftsman 5-Piece Reversible Offset Ratchet Screwdriver Set is a combo reversible offset screwdriver with 1/4 and 3/8-Inch slotted and #1 and 2 Phillips insert bits that is perfect for use in close quarters. This tool is made of nickel-plated, high-carbon, heat-treated steel. It is 4.5-Inch long and weighs 3.2 ounces.
