No, I actually had never heard of Witte before, but saw the name on KC Tools so I figured they were German and higher quality than the others I saw.

the handles are a little big but comfortable. here is my go to set that I got. napa brand but made by witte. they occasionally put out coupon codes too. witte still makes this style of driver too.

Not a bad Christmas haul at all fellas! Check out my new yellow!

Everyone loves this adapter. I've never seen the Milwaukee out in the wild, I do however, have the 30 degree impact driver adapter, priceless.

I have the dewalt right and angle and the Milwaukee 30, gotta say I never use the dewalt, it's good just haven't really had to do anything I couldn't fit a right angle drill in, now the Milwaukee pivot I've used quite a bit that ones great for off set and odd angles

Not a bad deal, the only thing i don't like about the milwaukee set, or the dewalt set is the non indicting grip side still is the same color as the indicating grip side, they should have just made the milwaukee grip all black, thats the only thing that kept me from picking them up

They're great drivers, they make the Knipex screwdrivers(that look exactly like yours) and screwdrivers for Matco. The Maxxpro specifically are the premium Matco screwdriver, it has a felt-like texture on the grip panels. I bought my Maxxpros through Sears with SYW points, one at a time.

I love that adapter. I want the thin flexible Dewalt adapter though, that one probably would all but retire the Milwaukee.

Well I bought it two weeks ago but it just came in. I had the Milwaukee before, this feels more refined and well balance and I really like the LED work light and the fact that it comes in an lboxx insert and has a little accessory box with an extra collet clamp and a mandrel as well as an extra nose piece. Six speeds 5000-35000 rpm, and both the power switch and speed dial are much easier to move on the Bosch than on the Milwaukee.

 

Also this is NAINA and I purchased it through Axminster Tools in the U.K.

I'm hoping that the Dewalt is capable enough I don't need to buy a regular wimpy right angle drill at all. Difference between $20 and $110 CAD can go towards something more fun lol.

Well my delivery today was a big disappointment. Only the slotted Witte screwdriver showed up, packing slip has both listed and there is nothing on Sears about the other being backordered so I'm now on chat with Griffen at Sears while he looks into it. Not thrilled about this. Also the screwdriver is lighter than I thought it would be, I thought they had sent an empty box until I located the one stuck in the craft paper. Did some more searching and the Phillips was nowhere to be found.

 

On top of that I am bidding on a 2 pack of Makita 2.0ah batteries on eBay and the outbid notification came in right after I discovered the missing screwdriver. Upped the bid so hopefully ending up with the batteries when the auction ends tonight.

 

Edit: Apparently the Phillips is shipping separately… this box could have held dozens of them. Doesn't seem like a good shipping practice to ship two very small and light things in two separate shipments via UPS. It should be here by the 24th.

Sweet!  I assume Dremel bits interchange?

 

If so, I would surely like a link to where you got it.

 

(edit) Never mind, found it.  Whoo, that's pricey.

Yup, all standard Drexel bits and even attachments for the tool. The site is Axminster

Didn't win either auction for Makita batteries, which sucks since I have a $15 eBay coupon. They would be a steal at $60 and an even bigger steal at $45 what would be less than half price for two 2.0ah batteries. Gave up on trying to find something on eBay and bought a set of Milescraft drill bit stop collars because depth stops will come in handy.

 

If anyone needs one of these sets of stop collars Sears was <$9 shipped whereas Milescraft wanted around $13 with shipping. Sears is actually shipping from WoodCraft so if you have one of them nearby the collar kit runs $4. I'm unlucky in that there is no WoodCraft or Rockler nearby.
