I have several of the mini screwdrivers that I move from SAK to SAK as needed. One evening I decided to try one on the screw in my glasses, and discovered that without my glasses, I can barely see the screw, let alone the slot in it. Reading your story made me think that the mini driver is only there so you can help others.
The corkscrew is a dedicated tool that usually comes useful when you least expect it, as when people go to a party or to a picnic and suddenly realise that they do not have a corkscrew to open ta bottle of wine they brought or were given. I always find threads like this interesting, where you see a divide between regions, some having no use or need for the corkscrew and some wondering why the question is even being asked for such a tool used daily.Not all wine containers will have screw-tops or pull rings or be made of carton everywhere.Same with bottle openers/cap lifters where many claim to have never needed one.Finlay, the corkscrew is also a holder for the mini driver
Funny about your glasses! But also frustrating! I take it you're long-sighted? I'm terribly short-sighted. The only advantage is it gives me a super ability to see close up without my glasses on.
Whippy I think did a test on the strength of the backside philips of SAKs a few years ago which may be of interest to many here. I had a quick look around but was not able to find it.....
With all the phillips screws out there, I really like having a phillips along.
Most of the times that I need a phillips screwdriver I can find one nearby, or even improvise something.
Only one Ive never found a use for...the toothpick.
With all the phillips screws out there, I really like having a phillips along. Now if they made a model with both a backside and an inline phillips, that would make me very happy.
Agreed. My most used mod is that way (Marlboro Troubleshooter + in-line Phillips and Lite module). It is also why I really like my new Workchamp. Two sizes of Phillips...plus the corkscrew. To my knowledge, you’d have to look to Wenger for smaller frame sizes with two phillips.
I still really want a WorkChamp, but they're what Alaskans call, "spendy."
Yes!!! That's one of the great things about the mighty Workchamp!
Hmm, re-reading this I see that most people really like the corkscrew for holding the mini screwdriver. Has anyone made a mini screwdriver to replace the toothpick or as the 3rd tool on the back scales that have the hidden 3rd tool channel?
