Is that screwdriver OK though?
It looks like it could go either way.

I always wonder at the quality of the bits in these sets. I’ve had some that looked like they were made from Play-Doh by someone with the metal working skills of a trout.

The sort of thing that bends into a length of pasta when you hit a tightly stuck screw or rounds off almost instantly…

I have an older version of this kit (the one with the gray canvas wrap) that I bought like 5 years ago and it’s great. Totally worth the money if you do any kind of electronics repair. It has every kind of weird specialty bit I’ve ever needed.

I use mine all the time and I’ve not had any issues with the driver bits becoming bent or misshapen even on very tight (or worse, threadlocked) screws.
