There’s a PST with tool adapter and bits in of of those huge leather sheaths on its way to me. Perhaps not very practical but fun to have.
What is this "practical" of which you speak...
I note the use of the word "probably"
I just got the Mrs to order me a little something, I’ve been after one of these for a while because my grandfather had one waay back when and other company’s make them but I wanted my Craftsman company, only thing is they started making them in China, so they’ve been hard to find till today, brand new and made in USA stamped unlike the piece of paper that says a USA company but made in China and nothing and on the tool, retardant, no offense to anyone in China but why lie about a tool saying it’s made in the US yet it’s not? So I found one and acutely not to far from me, so it will be here in a few days and the Mrs can wrap it for Xmas.. JR
I have three of them. The current, China-made ones have rounded drivers. I've not seen the loose ones, but my Lowe's had them with the screwdriver sets. I think that one is USA-made. The current ones don't seem to have USA stamped on them anywhere, and the Craftsman logo looks cheaper and simpler. That is, unless toolings were sold and shipped overseas, and they had yet to take "MADE IN USA" off the stamping. Interestingly enough, Granddad's, from the 1980s is stamped "WF" for Western Forge like a lot of Craftsman stuff, but mine, is not. Also, mine had no packaging, not even a label on the chain. They (ca. 2014; about a year before Sears went under here) were bulk-packed in a counter display box with bar code that the cashier scanned. While not as many drivers, Proto still makes the J-100 in the US. Price seems to have gone up a little bit more than a buck in the past couple months. WTF? But, about what you'd pay for what people are charging online for a 9-4160 (mine were all $1 by the way). I don't see why something like this would cost so much. Little labor, since it's just a stamped and minimally finished thin piece of hardened tool steel. https://www.grainger.com/product/PROTO-Alloy-Steel-Keychain-Slotted-3R162

A Green and a Blue Farmer X. I asked my wife which color she liked better of my Blue and Green Pioneer X. She said both were nice, but if she had to choose .... I took that to me I should get both.
Ahhhh, MTo "man-maths" * at its finest !!! * "man-maths" where a purchase decision is made based on want rather than real need, but some kind of justification is needed to justify the expenditure. It doesn't really matter how tenuous the connection between the decision & the justification, so long as there is some vaguely-plausible relationship (but don't look too closely or the whole pack of cards may collapse right before your eyes).
