    I'd like a nice set of precision screwdrivers. Of course the operative word here is nice. From the ones I've seen they're pretty flimsy and cheaply made. Bits falling out or handles mis-aligned, etc. I'd like a nice compliment of bits/drivers. Anyone have a set that seems to be decent quality?

    Would tend to lean toward Wiha. Depending on the bits and sizes you are looking for they have a fairly large catalog of different sets with varying levels of comprehensiveness. ESD-Safe is available if you need it.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I can't believe I didn't see those on Amazon (where I looked for and read reviews for). When I searched Wiha that was the one of first places that came up. Got good reviews too. Not sure I need esd safe but then again much of the time I'm needing a precision screwdriver I'm working on some type of electrical device. Thanks again!

    I picked up a set at Lowes made by Kobalt that has worked well for me.

    +1 on the Kobalt set from Lowes. I think its 8 or 10 in a zippered case. I have had them awhile and they are holding up well.

    Gearwrench also makes a really nice set in a zippered pouch.

    Go to www.brownells.com and search for screwdrivers. The Chapman set is excellent.

    I'm a computer tech. I keep a pair of the Kobalt precision drivers in my travel kit. One has phillips and slotted, the other torx and hex. The bits store in the handles. For the bench I have a big set of the WIHAs. Both brands have served me well.
