    Because I'm a grownup but also not

    This is essentially how I self-identify.

    I've got a similar screwdriver but it's styled like the Eleventh Doctor's sonic screwdriver and used to make the noise before the battery ran out

    Because I'm a grownup but also not

    I used to think I was a grown up but now I’m pretty sure I’m nowhere close.

    I finally found that old Nintendo Power Final Fantasy III Player's Guide I misplaced. It was in a sack with some other guides and magazines behind the couch. That perplexed me for a while.

    I have a ratcheting screwdriver and I think I've found the ratcheting feature to be helpful 0.01% of the time and "oh god fucking damnit" *struggles not to drop tiny screw while rotating ratchet collar to locked position* 99.99% of the time.

    Perhaps if I worked with chunkier, higher friction hardware with tons of threads more often I'd feel differently. But on electronics, twisting the ratcheting mechanism backwards usually doesn't cause the handle to freespin and instead turns the screw backwards because everything is so loose.

    And on top of that, the ratcheting mechanism is always set to loosen when you want to tighten on initial use.

    I have a ratcheting, extendable, t-handle screwdriver that I love.

    It's almost exactly like this one:

    On the one that I linked above, it's physically impossible for that to happen. The ratchet direction is set by a dial, and turning the dial doesn't cause the shaft to rotate even if there's no resistance.

    for electronics I have my "set of small pliers and small screwdrivers and other small stuff"

    for screws into walls or ikea furniture I have a drill

    for slightly tightening philips or flat head screws I've got way more screwdrivers than I need, considering how seldom they're actually the best tool.


    doesn't stop me from spending ages using a philips screwdriver that's too small just because I can't be arsed to get the drill even though that would mean a tenth of the effort, total, though

    what dk is talking about is turning the screwdriver

    which, when you're using it on a screw so small and loose that it offers about the same amount of resistance as just waving it about in the air, won't, well, ratchet

    often, it did do this perfectly well until that last bit and then the swearing starts

    Yes. I very frequently work with screws where, even when my ratcheting screwdriver is set to tighten, the screw will loosen and fall out when I rotate the screwdriver counterclockwise. Because even the very light force needed to spin the ratchet in the "open" direction is enough to turn the screw.

    When I encounter that, I just hold the shaft with my free hand on the back stroke.
