Pros: small, functional
Cons: none noted if used for minor tasks
Gam Manufacturing Company's 6 In 1 Claw/Hammer & Screwdriver is a nifty small tool to pack in suitcase or perhaps even tuck in purse. The Hammer features 4 different nesting screwdrivers sited in a solid Brass Handle.
The 2 largest drivers feature X, Phillips type tip; the 2 smaller blades are straight, slotted type with the smallest tip fitting most Eye Glass Screws or sewing machine screws.
My least favorite part of this tool is the Claw Hammer Head crafted of pliable Iron. Iron is not the best material for hammer pounding head, on the other hand, this small hammer will not be used for framing in a multi story building. It is fine for tapping tacks.
Nickel Plating us used on tempered steel screwdriver surfaces. Screwdrivers first most ordinary screw heads.
Others of these small multi tool devices crafted by Gam includes Tack Hammer with Phillips, 4 in 1 screwdriver sets include blade or Phillips, 3 in 1 screw driver, Ball Peen with screwdrivers slot or Phillips. Overall size is 2 7/8" x 7 3/4" making it ideal for briefcase, suitcase, kitchen tool drawer, emergency car trunk kit.
I will admit, I was less than enthralled when gifted with this particular multi tool from Gam.
My first experience with a similar type tool was less than noteworthy, on the other hand, that particular tool was not a Gam. Good design and intent, lousy quality and manufacture.
I have since learned that while a rose may always be a rose, a not Gam is not a Gam.
Gam is the innovative company to first create multi tools.
While I would not consider this multi tool for major work tasking; my hammer and screw driver combination tool is small enough to carry along on trips for small necessity type work. The solid brass and tempered steel make the tool pretty rust proof.
Crafted with the intention that the tool would be useful for jobs at office, in home, or in other work place Gam's meticulousness for design and quality production using top quality materials have created multi tools well capable to warrant their purchase, but are not junk as was the first set I saw.
Now, if I can just hint to the kid that the ball peen multi tool appears to be mighty handy, heh.
I have used my Gam Manufacturing Company's 6 In 1 Claw/Hammer & Screwdriver multi tool to tap a tack, to insert screws in eye glass ear piece, mine and students, and have used it to turn the tension screw found on my sewing machine.
Happy to recommend Gam Manufacturing Company's 6 In 1 Claw/Hammer & Screwdriver.
note: Gam designshell for personal use as well as offering materials as great advertising products: put company name or logo on handle.
