What's the best nut screwdriver? We're talking yuro shit and not the US stuff, because I'm a Europoor. I've been looking at PB Swiss and Gedore. I know Gedore is reknown for their nut drivers so I was thinking maybe they are better? Post your opinions anons :)

These are also a consideration, but seem like you can't get into places as tight as with the screwdrivers

Not able to reach those tight place must drive you nut

For you Europeans, Felo has the best nut milker hands down.

That driver seems thicker than necessary with all the rubber around it. Didn't hear of felo much.
>>
>>2224504

they dont aim at the homogamer
Seems more popular with the tradies

>>2224506
Didn't hear of anything but gedore till the other day.

$5 from harbor freight and you'll be set for life, no more looking for the right size driver.
>>
>>2224509
for every product you want there are at least 5 European manufacturers at the very peak of quality.
They fly under your radar because industry suppliers dont do freebies for American youtubers.

It needs to be wider for the euro gape market.

Piss off mate

Ha-ha, very funny.

Looking at Felo Gedore and PB Swiss.
>>

>thicker
Yes, so you don’t get electricuted when the batteries from the prostate massager touch the nutter. You can get non-insulated nutters.

>>2224459
The blue is the better Gedore, right? And red is the home gamer Gedore?
>>
>>2224530
Or get a 1/4” square spinner handle and a cheap socket set
>>
>>2224578
That's my way as well, but this is a nut driver thread.
>>
>>2224577
Yes the blue is the good gedore.

I don't need insulated nutters, I'll see what they have from non-insulated ones.
>>
Wiha also makes some too

I have a klein multi nut, I use it probably once or twice a day to get a weird size nut out of a strange place. I like that it covers all the standard sizes into one tool that I can slip into my bag. at some point I will likely get some dedicated ones but at the moment I can't justify the added weight

>>2224511
and how is that supposed to reach a nut buried in an engine, electrical cabinet, etc?
>>
>>2224702
? hollow shaft?
>>
>>2224761
Seems to wide to reach deep dug M3 bolts.
>>
>>2224917
What are doing in here?
>>
>>2224920
Ohhhh, wow haven't ever seen sth like this, this is amazing. Probably wont have the need for it since I make sure my bolts are appropriately sized but I'll see which drivers have this.

>>
>>2224917
if you're buying nut drivers you probably want hollow shafts as nuts are frequently on long threaded rods. the hollow shaft allows you to stick several inches of rod inside of it, whereas a solid shaft wouldnt even be able to get to the nut

würth only makes screws.
everything else is rebranded. often from some good German company's.

i have insulated Lux screwdrivers from Obi (German home depot) which i believe are rebranded felo.
>>
>>2224919
well obviously it can't reach everything, but it reaches enough for what I do

>>2225449
I think you're just being silly. you know that requires a huge amount of clearance that is likely unavailable

>>2225492
the drivers that most people are posting on this thread are designed to drive the head of a bolt, not the nut (if any). obviously this is confusing terminology but that's what it refers to
>>
>>2226311
I guess yeah, the clearance in second look would not be an issue but I just need to go for uninsulated ones, I have some clearance issues on a part on where the sidewall of the driver would be. I use an acorn nut on that part and on a lot of parts so hollow is not necessary.
>>
>>2224457
I'm a huge PB Swiss fan. But I also like a lot of the German brands like Gedore, Hazet, Wera, Wiha.
>>
>>2224457
>>2225562
gedore
HAzet

Don't these just rebrand?
>>
>>2228090
Not to my knowledge.
>>
>>2228090
What makes you think that?
>>
>>2228124
Look the same I guess
