Default A Great Find At Harbor Freight

While I was at JoAnn's my husband was at the Harbor Freight Store right next door. I was complaining about how all of the screwdrivers that I use to remove the pressure foot plate on my many sewing machines were always so tall and big around so here is the neatest little screwdriver that he got for me. As you can see from the pictures it has a removable bit that is magnetized so it won't fall out and it also have one of those things where you can set the screwdriver to turn the screw either left or right. I think it is going to be of great value to me and I thought you all might like to look at it.

Well, I don't know if it was on Shawnee Mission Parkway but it was a Shawnee Mission Store.

My husband told me it only cost $4.99. I think that is a real bargain

Smart guy! I hate using that silly flat screwdriver. I was buying some LED lights and storage containers, I just put one of these in my carts.

Thanks for the tip.

This tool comes in so handy. I have a couple of them .... one in my tool drawer and one with my sewing stuff. They are so useful! Glad you found them.

and that Joann's and Harbor Freight provide hours of entertainment! .... although not cheap entertainment!

How well does that arm grip the screwdriver? Have you had a chance to test drive it yet?

Would the magnet do some damage to a computerized sewing machine?
