I bought this set while back, and didn't use it for a while. It seemed like a nice set. The first time I tried it to back out a screw, the shaft just slipped inside the cheap plastic handle. I tightened the collet as much as I could and it still slipped.
The bits fit into a hexagonal hole in the shaft - that part's OK - metal to metal, but the shaft itself is held in the plastic handle by a plastic collet, which isn't strong enough to stand much torque. This is a SCREWDRIVER, it's supposed to stand some torque! The screw in question wasn't that tight, either - it easily backed out with a regular screwdriver.
The bits are probably OK, but the handle is soft plastic junk. Maybe I can super glue the shaft in, but the plastic is soft like tupperware.
