I don't know if this has been posted before, but I was ambitious today and took a bunch of pictures.  This is one of them.

Those are not as plentiful as the plain ones. I have two or three in varied condition.

That has to be the neatest screwdriver that I have ever seen.  Got to find me one.  Do they have a special name?

I would rather have tools I never use, than to need a tool I don't have.

I have a few of the more unusual HD Smith perfect handles.

One similar to the one above, one with the rubber covered handle, one with "wings" for extra leverage and one (custom made by someone) for driving screws around a corner :<)
