The Mastercraft Advent Calendar gives us the first screwdriver bits today- in this case, three flat head bits! 

I wonder if they are copying a certain multitool manufacturer?  😀

3 single different sized flat head bits are much more handy than the same thing in a MT  :whistle: :woohoo: :like: :like:

Three in one day is great! Otherwise the number of spots in the case is a giveaway of what's coming.

On the 11th day of December we are back to Imperial sizes with the 5/16" socket in the Mastercraft Advent Calendar!

11 days in and this is already becoming a pretty great set!

It is Tuesday the 13th, which is more scary as an adult than Friday because it means you still have most of the work week to go!

But, since today brings us the biggest socket in this set (judging by the slots in the case anyway!) we are ready for anything- that involves an 11mm socket anyway!

Some very cool additions today!

A couple of Torx bits (T25 and T20) and a 1/4" hex bit!

The Torx are perfect for working on cars (very common sizes) and the hex bit will make assembling Ikea furniture a breeze!

It's the 15th, which means it's the middle of the month, but as an Advent Calendar only goes for 24 days, it means we are well into the second half of the calendar!

And, speaking of fractions, it's another Imperial socket  today, and I don't want to admit that I had to use a magnifying glass to identify it as the numbers are so darned small!   :ahhh

But, in the end it turned out to be the 9/32" socket, which I am not sure I have ever used on any of my other sets, but I imagine I would need desperately if it wasn't included!  :D

Agreed!

It may even replace my old "traveling ratchet" set that I use for most things.

Yeah don't blame you!

Today's addition is super handy- three more Torx bits, a T8, T10 and T15!

That's one whole row of screwdriver bits full now, although I reserve the right to rearrange them as more come in.... if they come in!

I am sure you could probably get a very similar set at Harbour Freight, Pep Boys, Ace or one of a hundred other retailers that you guys have, for a lot cheaper than we get!   :D

Today's addition is a 1/4 " socket, which is very handy to have, but is a bit redundant as you can see, the ratchet has a 1/4" bit driver built into it, which does pretty well the same job as the socket.

Still, I am happy to have it as the socket could provide some much needed clearance in tight areas!

For clearance in tight areas, you can't beat a crow's foot...or a combo wrench that has had the boxed end shaved down.

Again, this is a really cool kit!

Absolutely agreed.  The pivoting head on this one is a great help too. 

At least, I would imagine it is.  I have pivoting, ratcheting box ends on my wrench set and they really come in handy, so I would imagine this would be the same.

Yes, and I am starting to get the distinct feeling that there will be no fine cheeses in this set after all.

Of course, there are still several days left....

We are getting close to the end of the calendar here, and today we get our third last socket- at least, judging by the available slots!

Today's 5mm leaves us with only two empty slots and some space in the screwdriver section, so I guess that is a subtle hint of what is coming over the next few days!

The good news is that we will be well set to put together any toys or other gifts that need assembling on Christmas morning!   :D
