Default need some good bits for my new drill/screwdriver

got a new cordless drill and a cordless screwdriver. I need some tips for it or better yet a set if i can find one. I would like to know of some good sets people have tried, i have seen the ofna one, and i am a little dubious about it.


I love the mip wrenches as i have used the hand tools the whole time i have had my car, but i can't find it in sets.

Same thing as Hudy. I really like the EDS tools because they are cheaper than the Hudy ones, but are the same thing.

I'm using the dynamite ones and they seem to be holding up great. I'm sure there are better ones, but these are getting the job done. They come with a nice little ratcheting handle too.

Ok. Care to explain how EDS has his stuff made by Hudy and be able to sell the product for LESS money than Hudy.

MIP makes tips for power drivers. However, they do not offer them in a set.

I have the Hand held MIP drivers. Simply the best out there.

Yea, and?

Hudy is not gonna offer that deep of a discount for EDS to sell them at a LOWER price than Hudy and both parties still be able to turn a profit. I know they look similar, but come on. The numbers price wise don't add up.

uuumm, MAC tools makes craftsman and kobalt. Snap on makes husky and stanley.

Matco makes (can't remember). Point is yes, alot of the time you pay for the name. Kobalt and craftsman are excellent quality. Snap on tools are way overpriced. Actually my butt still hurts from buying the hudy set up station. Should of gotten the cheaper one.

And i have a set of mip hand wrenches.
