Yes, very light indeed, its the Poundshop tools, cannot recommend.


My experience says the same; buy cheap, buy twice etc. You can buy tools that will last a lifetime for not a whole lot more.

We bought one of these a few years ago and we've used it hundreds of times! Its been a brilliant little tool, very surprised for £1. Heat from me OP
I bought one last year and it is a very handy tool. But it bends if you press little hard.
Hubby has a set, he uses a lot for 'light duty'

Voted hot. Cannot go wrong with a pound. But definitely not for precision work etc where you do not want to damage screws like those in laptops etc.

For the money it's a bargain and it really is. But the bits are not that precise and they seem to be made out of 'hardened butter' as it doesn't take a lot to shred them. I know it's a case of you get what you pay for but for £1 they are more than adequate.

I agree. I would rather put that quid to buying something that won't be getting dumped too soon.
You can have them fine, precise or for a quid. Not all 3.
I bought one a while ago, purely because it had a "tri-wing" bit which is useful if you need to fix Nintendo Wii controllers!
Never thought I'd see 'precision' and 'Poundland' in the same sentence . . .
I've had my yellow equivalent for a few years now, was a god send when my sons were building their new PC's.

The combination of the wee dumpy screwdriver and interchangeable bits worked really well compared to normal screwdrivers.

They are precise until you need to use more than a few Nm of torque then they’re useless but I’ve definitely got sufficient use out of that £1 for them to have paid for themselves many times over. It’s better than paying £5-10 for a single decent screwdriver for someone to borrow and never return it...
Decent for a quid. Handy for pesky little jobs and saved the day at Xmas with all the toys needing batteries put in...

£1 well spent
These days even the "Made In China Cheapies" can do virtually any job and not twist crumple or snap.The screws made there themselves are another matter though. They are still appalling
These are ok, the handle is a bit too small (not too much torque), they have one with a less bits so it's good to buy both (or just one if you don't need so many bits). I wouldn't use it for white goods (well maybe for a keetle or microwave if that shaft will be long enough to reach screws).
Poundshop have way better one for a freezer. This are more like to put apart old camera or walkman.

Excellent little bit of kit. Dust on the better tools while I use these, particularly useful where so many little household items have to be screwed/unscrewed.
These are fine, not the best but in this case quantity does beat quality as you will never be stuck for a driver for bodging apart delicate electronics.
Hot.
One of the best tools I have ever purchased, as I have used it so many times over several years. Holder/Case ideal for sitting on a shelf and easy to find.
It's always £1
Their sets of 4 screwdrivers, both red, one set with "insulated" shafts the other with knobbly bits like the picture above, don't seem to be made of the usual cheese vanadium, worth chucking in the kitchen draw for usual cross head and flat bladed jobs, fuses , childproof battery covers etc. As with many of these short bit sets at some point a screw down a long hole will be inaccessible.
What do people expect for £1? They are great for taking batteries out of kids toys or the odd job around the house, Can't fault them.
Best used on imaginery screws if you don't want to warp the head
