Apparently it's okay to use the word Ridgid here, so where can I buy another screwdriver like this? It's my favorite tool. It works great for #2 machine screws. It will also work with sizes up to #10. A #2 screw is tiny. The smallest you can get at a hardware store is #4.

I bought it at Home Depot about 5 years ago. Apparently they don't make them any more. The interesting thing about it is it wouldn't work in any screw when I brought it home. That's probably why they couldn't sell them. The tip came to a sharp point and it would bottom out in any screw. I had to grind it off. At first this bothered me, but then I realized I could size it for whatever screw head I wanted.

It has a very comfortable "soft feel" plastic handle and the blade has a hex cross section. I never though my most prized possession would be a screwdriver, but that's life.

Things just ain't what they used to be. Even their calendar girls don't carry a pipe wrench anymore.
