Anyone who works with their hands knows that you can never have too many tools. In that pursuit you inevitably wind up with multiples of certain accessories. Two socket sets, three multi-meters, and more crescent wrenches than one person could really use. Most multi-attachment screwdrivers will even give you an assortment of bits; straight blade, Phillips, hex, etc with doubles of the same size. Over the years I've had three screwdrivers (ChannelLock, Kobalt, and Craftsman) that each came with its own collection of bits. I finally had to start a collection cup to hold them all. So what do you do with these extras? Replace lost or broken tips? Throw in the spares drawer? How about making another set of tools to round out your collection?
Stubby or low-profile screwdrivers help for the really tight spaces. Low clearance, cramped quarters, you name it. But why buy them? You can easily make a set that'll allow you get to all the tight spaces with just the right driver bit. And in the process you'll have a nice set of durable screwdrivers to round out your ever-growing collection. Drop them, step on them, lose them, find them in again 20 years. If you choose the right materials, these drivers will out-last you.
This is actually a quick and easy project. I was feeling spontaneous when I made mine and it only took about 20 minutes to make 4. That's including interruptions. You could easily make a set of 8-12 in an hour.
