I originally owned the Craftsman Pro version of this screw-driver OEM'ed by schroeder from early the 2000's until one of my room-mates lost/stole it :). Anyways I just recently re-purchased this guy again, and this is still my favorite tool in the box. It really allows you to put down torque on a screw. I mostly use the twist handle to get locked in screws without having to use WD-40/liquid wrench or ones that have been put in with loctite. I do remember my craftsman version having a stronger magnet at the head that was a bit hard to get the bits out ( the old bits where goldish colored), but this schroeder version wasn't a problem at all. The handle swivle (sp?) mechanism is tight and stays in place when verticle with the handle. It has a 6 hole bit holder that fits on the shaft, and also the 6 slots in the bottom of the handle. The handle slot piece is just pushed down a bit to get access and twisted in either direction. The construction is solid in your hand, and feels like a thick ABS plastic. I haven't seen a comparable interchangable screw driver by any of the major manufacturers (craftsman, snap-on, wiha, etc) that are this nice. Can't recommend this tool enough, and it's too bad you can't find schroeder tools more readily available online. I don't mind paying the extra cost for Wiha and other german made tools vs the garbage you find at home depot/lowes, except maybe klein :)

I spent the day moving HP equipment around in a rack, in a dark room, using this and a HarborFreight 4-in-1 screwdriver. The super-strong (stronger than Snap-On) magnet makes it very tough to remove a bit, but, I've discovered this to be a benefit, because I don't lose a bit to the rack-monster. It's very frustrating if you're installing or removing screws and suddenly the bit or the screw drops into the nether-regions of the rack. The Schroeder I had no problems with. The HarborFreight, on the other hand, dislodged the bit twice, and I'm not bringing that with me into the server room again.

The additional torque was welcome; a few times I was removing #2 Phillips with Loctite Blue. Kind of handy to just pivot the top half of the handle out and twist. You have to be using ACR bits when you do that though.

I don't like the handle storage, but the Kableklip works well enough and it clips to the tool's shaft for storage, so that's fine. The bits are just as hard to remove from the Kableklip as they are from the magnetic bitholder.

The ratchet is actually the same one they use for their tap handle; if you haven't used that yet and you need to tap threads you should definitely get it. Life is a lot easier with it. In any case, my point is the ratchet is built to put up with a lot of use and a lot of torque. I doubt if I'll ever wear it out. Also, it seemed rough when just trying it out with my hands, but when actually doing work it was very intuitive to change from loosen to tighten without having to reduce turning torque or having to remove the tool from the screw.

The ratcheting part seems to be of reasonable quality.
The problems w/ the unit are as follows.
The folding handle, which when bent offers greater torque, does not "lock" into straight position. It will fold on you in use, when you didn't want it too.
The magnet which holds the bits is super strong. This would normally be a plus, but the bits are all too short so that when you put one in it's hard to get back out because there's not enough bit exposed to grasp. This is especially a problem w/ the smaller phillips head bits which are almost impossible to get out.
This is compounded when the screw driver is actually used, especially in high torque situations which is the purpose of this tool, because there is just enough play in the bit holder that the bits bind inside the receptical and I've already had to extract one of the smaller phillips head bits w/ my multitool.
The bit holder, built into the handle is okay, the selector works well enough.
I think it would be okay if I substituted longer bits, but then they would not fit in the holder, drastically reducing the functionality of the tool.

I do not recommend this tool at all.
