Love that Quick-Wedge (Apr, 1951)

Pardon me, but do you have any comically large screwdrivers in stock?

    Not a Quick-Wedge, but comically large and generally in stock: http://www.leevalley.co…

    Yes but does either one match the legendary Sears no-questions-asked lifetime warranty? Or has that become *just* a legend now?

    No, the Craftsman unlimited lifetime warranty through Sears is alive and well http://consumerist.com/…

    I myself rely on Stahlville or Kamasa tools, they have a lifetime quarantee as well, and can withstand some incredible abuse….

    The quick wedge holds slotted screws via a split bit that expands when you push down the collar at the top of the handle. I have some of them that I ordered by mistake at our shop. Handy for slotted screws which are less popular than the Phiilips Head type nowadays.

    I was lucky enough to find one of those for sale at the tools bin at a local flea market some years back. A good way to hold screws without resorting to magnetism.

    I’m perpetually baffled at stuff like this, when the noble Canadian invention, the Robertson-head screw, has been clinging to its driver since 1909.

    Robertson drive is all I use anymore for that reason, among others. Or Spax, which allows either Robertson or Phillips drive . . . .

    Ernst Bitterman: Yeah, good old Robertson snatching defeat from the jaws of victory by failing to license “his” design to Henry Ford back in the day http://www.sizes.com/to…

    Funny, because a decent patent search would have revealed that the Roberston head screw should have been called something else http://www.google.com/p…

    Sorry Ernst, it seems it was a noble New York invention since 1875
