What is The Best Screwdriver Set of 2016?

I don’t know about you, but I get very angry when I need a screwdriver and cannot find one. I will go out and but the best screwdriver set I can find and then lose each piece one at a time. This time, I am going to research which is the best and make sure I put them away. You get the benefit of reading along with me so that you don’t have to spend the time that I did!

Screwdrivers are one of the most essential tools to keep in your house. You never know when you will need one to put together some furniture or replace a battery so you can use your sons’ favorite remote controlled car again. You are better off just getting one now instead of waiting until you need one, mostly to avoid the aggravation.

When I was rating these different sets to find the best screwdriver set of 2016, I was looking at value and quality. It is important to remember that the value is relative to the size of the set. A 70-piece screwdriver set might be $40 more expensive and still be a better value than the $20 set that only has four cheap screwdrivers.

Another note before we got started is that I Acouldn’t decide if I wanted a set of full screwdrivers, or a set with exchangeable tips. Both have their benefits and will be included on this list. You will need to decide which on you would prefer.

Best Set For Home Use

If you are looking for the best screwdriver set to keep at home for when you need them, you are looking for something completely different then someone looking to work on their car. You want something that is good quality but you probably don’t want to spend a fortune on the ones that are guaranteed to last forever. You also don’t need a full set that includes a ton of specialty screwdrivers that you will never use for anything but taking up space.

Stanly 10-Piece Fluted Screwdriver Set

This is the best screwdriver set to have at home just encase. It comes with 10 different screwdrivers so that you just about any size and type and type that you may run into in your everyday life without going overboard. The best part about this set is that you get all of this for less than the price of a tank of gas. You will be hard-pressed to find any other screwdriver set at this price with a lifetime warranty.

Even though the price is low, you are still getting everything you might need. Each screwdriver is made with hardened tips to help ensure that your tool does not slip off of those hard to turn screws. The bars are also coated with nickel plating to ensure that they do not rust and fall apart.

Craftsman 17-Piece Screwdriver Set

If you are looking to step it up to something that will be able to handle a little bit more, this craftsman set might be the best screwdriver set for you. It comes with 17 pieces, so I am sure that it will be able to accomplish any job that you might run into. Another great feature is that it is backed by craftsman’s industry leading warranty on all hand tools.

The set includes 9 slotted screwdrivers, 7 Philips head, and a nifty keychain screwdriver. Each tool is built to balance perfectly in your hand and be able to take whatever job you throw at it. The blades are heat treated so that they can take a beating.

Best Set For Your Garage

Finding the best screwdriver set for your garage is a little different than finding one for basic house work. A garage set needs to be a little larger so that you have the tools for working on the lawnmower and anything else you have in your garage. It is beneficial to have the perfect size for the job when working with power tools. With these screwdrivers, you prefer that they come in some sort of case or rack so that you can keep them together and organized.

Performance Tool 26-Piece Screwdriver Set With Rack

This set is a home run when it comes to a set of screwdrivers that is perfect for your garage. It comes with 26 different sized screwdrivers in a compact rack for organization. The rack can be set on a workbench or mounted in a pegboard to make things even easier.  I would love to mount one of these on my pegboard so that they always have a place to go and are less likely to get lost.

Its tough to beat the quality of these screwdrivers individually as well. They are well built and made to last. When reading some of the reviews elsewhere on the internet, several mechanics use this set in their shops and love them. There is no way I’m going to be as rough as they are on this set, so it has to last forever if you are just using it for odds and ends at home!

Best Precision Screwdriver Set

Precision screw drivers are for those of you out there that work with tiny screws on a normal basis. Whether you are working on electronics or eyeglasses, this is the kind of set that you want.

Tekton Precision Screwdriver Set

With hardened carbon steel shafts and non-slip knurled grips, this is the best screwdriver set on the list if you are looking to do something detailed. These are the perfect option for anyone that works with electronics on a regular basis. The set has everything you could possible need and so much more!

One of the coolest things about this set is that it includes a whole in each handle so that you can attach another piece as a lever for better torque. This means that you can also get all the force you need out of these precision tools
