Buck Bros 6-n-1 Screw Driver. My Handy, Junk-Drawer Tool

Review by Phil Popsrocks
Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:easy to use
Cons:not a true 6-n-1 but good enough
The Bottom Line:
I recommend this Buck Bros 6-n-1 Screwdriver for around the house use. The plastic/acetate handle allows a great grip. It beats having four different drivers in my junk drawer.
I have a couple of these Buck Bros brand 6-n-1 screw drivers. They are available in many hardware store and big box warehouses. I find it a convenient tool to have around giving me a few different options in one well made tool.
Recommend this product?
This Buck Bros 6-n-1 screwdriver has a large four cornered handle. I gives good grip. It is designed with a flip around shank that has a tip on each end.
Each tip comes out of the shank and flips having a #1 Phillip's bit on one side and #2 Phillips bit on the other. The other bit has slotted sides one smaller and the other larger. The sizes are 3/16 in. slotted and a 1/4 in.
This was once considered and sold as a 4-n-1 screw driver consisting of the four tips I mention. Someone came up with a brain of an idea stating that when the bit is taken out the hollow end can be used as a 1/4 in. hex nut driver.
That's fine and good but to offer two of the same size as two pieces/functions? I dunno.
The handle states, Made In USA, something I like to see.
I like this screw driver. It's a very convenient tool that I always have handy in my desk junk drawer. The flip feature is easy to pop out and re-snap in when using the other side. The bits it come with are hard. The Phillips bits wear on some drivers. These I have had for a while without signs or wear at all.
I believe part of that is due to the well designed handle that allows for a good solid drive with less slipping causing the tip to wear and strip the top of the screw. I like that I can get a good grip on the ProGrip Acetate handle of this driver. That's a big plus. That gives me a good amount of torque making my job easier.
The finish has stayed a bright shiny chrome look from day one and continues looking that way. The shank and tip measure about two inches so there are many applications when a longer tip is needed that this tool fails to accommodate.
That said, I do recommend this Buck Bros 6-n-1 Screw driver for around the house use. It beats having to have four different drivers in my drawer.
