I'm not handy at all. Would this help me to be slightly handy? I like the idea of it, but my main use of screws are in PCs and other consumer electronics at most.

What I like about this set is that it has the extra-long bits for working on certain electronic devices.

First, I own this and it is a great tool with a ton of bits that can be used on most fasteners you will encounter - everything from appliances to decking to small electronics. Since the large bits in this set are all hex shank, you can pop them into a drill or impact driver if you have (or ever get) one. This is an entire set of screwdrivers in one, and the QuickDrive action means you can twist them in/out way faster.

As far as it helping you be more handy, every new tool helps you do that (my excuse, anyway). The best thing to do is start tackling projects yourself, start small and then take on more as your knowledge and confidence grow. Don't let not knowing stop you - it takes a will to learn. A great place to learn is by watching pros and amateurs do the same type of project on YouTube. You'll learn tons of tips and tricks and even spot the mistakes the amateurs make.

You will likely run into situations where you don't have the right tool and would be easier and cost about the same to just call someone to do it for you. Buy the tool, figure it out, do it yourself. That's how you become more handy, build skills and end up with a nice collection of tools that cost no more than you would have spent yet end up paying for themselves again and again down the road. That's an investment - not only in tools, but also in yourself. Good luck!

I have this, be warned that the ratchet is weak (weaker than most ratcheting drivers due to the double direction) and shouldn't be used to loosen really tight or tighten really tight. Start and finish with something old-fashioned and you'll be fine. it's nice and fast with the double direction

I would say that it is almost always cheaper and you come out of it with a tool and a new skill. This is especially true for cars; instead of taking your car for 2 wheel bearings you can buy the parts (and know that it is the best part available) a 20 ton press, a ball joint popper (what are those called?) and the wrenches to do the job. After it is done you still have the tools, and it was probably cheaper than taking it in, and the next time you need to do another job you have these tools that you might not need to buy.

As for this tool, I would probably get an 11-in-1 from kleins or lennox instead. It doesn't have near the bit selection, or racheting, but it is a more stable layout and does the common hex sizes.

Meaning you broke it or it broke and it no longer works?

Meaning the ratchet gear teeth began to strip and the action became noisy/grinding so I returned it for another!

This thing is essential! It makes it so effortless, as you don't have to keep cranking the screwdriver one direction, so you don't fatigue. I have the original, this is a newer generation, with lots of bits. Very nice

FYI ratcheting out is almost pointless, as in once there's less resistance the ratchet won't have enough resistance to click and you'll just continue "manually"

Just a note the bits are proprietary so you lose your shit out of luck
