Stanley 066358 Multi-Bit Stubby Screwdriver
Stanley 066358 Multi-Bit Stubby Screwdriver
Price: £6.41

4.0 out of 5 stars small, handy ratchet screw driver, 4 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ratchet works well.

It's too long to be a stubby, due the bit storage in the handle, which adds about 1 inch to the length.

The bit storage is also fiddly, because the bits are tight and difficult to remove. Not for people with fat fingers.

Still, a decent little screwdriver that comes in handy.

This is very sturdy and makes working on high things much easier and safer. It also folds up and is easy to store away.

Very nice nozzles that put plenty of air into the water.

Easy to install, although I had to use plumber's tape on mine to prevent leaks through the thread.

A very informative book, which crucially is based on evidence. As a Briton it makes for an interesting and depressing read.

I bought this because the larger versions are too wide - although I might buy another and connect them together.

Easy to fit, because the holes are pre-drilled. All you will need is a saw for your plastic downpipe. I used a big hacksaw - a small hacksaw would be too small for most pipes. Your pipes must be flexible enough to move their entire width so the diverter can be fitted. This shouldn't be a problem unless your pipe goes into concrete.

The tap fitted easily. When screwed-in by hand it finished in the perfect position. No need to overtighten or use plumber's tape.

The base is okay and overall it feels pretty sturdy. The tap is positioned a few cm above the bottom of the butt, so that some water always remains at the bottom. I guess this is to keep the butt balanced in strong winds.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless, 4 Oct 2014

This set was completely useless. The sockets would not stay on the ratchet at all, because the ball on the ratchet was always depressed. Obviously the set I received was faulty, so I returned it and bought a different brand. Apart from that show-stopper, the ratchet did feel quite nice, and a working set would be a good thing to have.

If you want to make a proper Rogan Josh, then this is what you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good set with useful additional items, 4 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great ratchet set. Everything works well. The two different attachment lengths are useful, as is the swivel attachment.

The bit driver is also handy, but it feels cheap and uncomfortable. It also has a black plastic handle that does not look as good as the one in the photo - maybe that one is better?

The items rattle around in the case a bit, although they do stay in their place. The case is hard and sturdy.

Decent quality jacket. Keeps the rain out. It would be nicer if it packed to a smaller size, but at least it's easy to fit back into the pack
