Wanted: 3/8 flat head tip screwdriver that's stubby (or equivalent socket)

I need a large flat head tip, like the big 3/8" tips but those tips typically have a long handle that will not fit within the confines of the working area on this chopper.
So I need the 3/8" tip but a stubbier handle. Been looking online, hard enough to find the large tip much less the stubby handle, any idea where I can find this?

Also would settle for a socket but then I have to carry a ratchet in my toolbag as well

I've got one... started as like 12 or 14" long... sawed to desired length... then welded on a new handle. I never bothered looking to buy one. I've inherited so many tools I've got duplicates for almost everything so cutting one down was the fastest way.

I did find this set on Amazon but for $13 I have no idea about quality.

PilotDane -If you have too many duplicates feel free to send some my way. I lost 35 years of tool collecting in the fire. Now I have a tack hammer, 2 screwdrivers, needle nose pliers and a putty knife. Yesterday I bought a utility knife and today I bought a drill driver so I am on my way to recovery.

How about a drag link socket and a palm grip 3/8 drive spinner.

The Amazon kit was on backorder and the longer screwdrivers, even if I cut them down, had either a round shaft or a square shaft so neither would accept a socket.
This is what I ended up doing (8mm wrench and individual bit)

We've all ended up doing that a time or three. I like to use a ratcheting wrench.
