Looking for handtool....

I have been looking for a screwdriver, phillips # 3 head with an 8 inch shaft (not overall length. So far I havent found it anywhere. Anyone know where I can get one? Snap On, Matco, Mac, Klien, SK, Craftsman, Husky, Stanley, and all lines of Cooper tools do not make it. Thanks

Maybe post int he hardware section under tools?

HD sells a 7 piece Klein set of hand tools. I really like them for electrical work. But then again, if the screw has the option for phillips or a fatty flathead, I'll use the flathead in a heart beat.

More bad news: neither Wiha
nor Wera
do either.

Best suggestion I have would be to get a screwdriver handle with interchangeable bits and get a bit long enough to do what you need.

Magna makes varying lengths of both. Search for a 37033 handle from this part of their catalog
and a bit from page 6 of this part of their catalog

Good luck

Have you checked Home Depot? I know it sounds obvious, but I picked up a #2 Phillips with an 8" shaft there just a few weeks ago. (Made by Fuller) I thought they had an #3x8" there as well, but you'd have to look. Then again I'm up in Canada so they may have different stock. I'm sure they must be out there.

#3 screwdriver found.

I purchased a set of screwdrivers in the electical tools dept. at sears the brand name of my set of is Wiha they are good quality screwdrivers and does include a #3 and also is insulated up to a 1000 volts. the set of 6 Wiha screwdrivers cost me $30.00. if you visit a larger sears store you will find they do carry other tool brands besides craftsman....
