Yep, the shaft runs through a small metal plate that sits at an angle for tension. You can see this in close up pics. Push on the lever and you move the shaft to where you need. They work great. It's nice to use them in a small hand held driver. Teardown or quick adjustments are simple. I've been using mine since Dec. 05 right after they were released. Haven't replaced anything yet, anodizing has stood up to my abuse. The plastic colored caps are all still tight to snap back on the end. And the tips seem perfect still.

The bullits don't sound like the Ofna wrenches. There's no groove or anything on them

I broke two Hudy flat blade screwdrivers that were the 5mm I think. Trying to remove the head on my Novarossi engine. They lasted about 15 seconds each. I had to give my buddy $10 to replace his tip.

The new EDS are very good and you can get the replacement tips also. They have flooded the LHS's here in SoFLa. They have so many tools to chose from. Buy either their singles, combo sets or go for the entire set of your chose from their website.

http://edsracingproducts.com/

The LHS's keep running out of these tools everywhere.

Hudy makes a real nice set of hex drivers.
I just wish I could find something to put
on the handles to keep them from rolling
away. Does anyone have any ideas?

1. MIP, they have been the standard for years and you cant beat how hard the tips are.
2.Hudy, the quality is obvious, has replaceable tips and a complete range of tools if you need to match.
3.JConcepts, now with a full range of tools also, color coded, and replaceable tips.

I can tell you this. I own tools, lots of tools. Over $50K worth of tools from years of automotive work. Tools will all wear out, not matter what brand it is. A lot of the tools mentioned are very good, so loosing a tip ever so often is not much at $4-$8 each sometimes. The entire EDS intro 26 piece tool special is still cheaper than one set of my metric Snap-On sockets. And you still need a racket to go with it.

ive been using RdLodgics hexes for over a year now and i use them almost everyday getting ready for races striping the cars down and building em back up and they are solid use can barley notice a little bit of round but they have so many screws through them and they are a nice tight fit you can torqe the crap out of motor bolts (or any bolt) and they have a great grip handle as well as good prices i think $28 for 4 (1.5 2.0 2.5 3.0)

mine probally have 250,000 cranks on them
