LTT Screwdriver Price Speculations?

Sigfried
 Share

A few days ago I realized that It's time to stop taking my father's screwdriver.

Some hours later I come to know about the incoming ltt screwdriver and I wanted to ask:

 

How much could it cost?

 

I know It's a pretty weird question but the thing is, I have never ever had anything to do with this very particular market.

Does anyone have have enough knowledge to give me an idea of the price?

I'd really love to get one of those as my first multibit, I'm sure they did a great job, like for the mats.

We dont know how many bits they will come with.

 

Id expect something around their other merch, 75$ like the above person said is going to be way too high, id guess 30-40$ (usd), maybe, maybe 60$ cad

I could use some help with this!

please, pm me if you would like to contribute to my gpu bios database (includes overclocking bios, stock bios, and upgrades to gpus via modding)

Those things are $70-80!? I know mechanics claim the Snap-on truck is highway robbery, but I didn't think it was that bad... I think both of my go-to Stanley screwdrivers would have been like $30 combined...

Anyone hoping for $30 is likely dreaming. I think if I had to bet money on it its gonna be in the 69-79 USD range, and if its as good as the snap on drivers it will be WELL WORTH that money if you use it a lot. As someone who uses tools to make their living I can say that $70 is not unreasonable in the least for a ratcheting screwdriver.

Only some stuff is highway robbery on the Truck. There are many tools they have that are fantastic and worth more than the average Stanley or craftsman equivalent. Then there are also tools that are extremely overpriced on there. Also you have to remember that you are paying for the convenience of the truck, they handle all the warranty and they come to me. If I am at my shop and need something I can call my guy and generally have it there same day, thats worth something.

Yeah, I feared It would be something around that.

Again, If they did set the bar and did the research and testing like for the mats, I'm sure is going to be worth it.

More than an iFixit kit, that's for sure...

40€ - 60€( 47-79 USD) for a set of 6.  Or a similar price range for one ratchet screwdriver plus an assortment of bits and markup.

Honestly if it’s anything under $80 USD and looks like a solid tool I’ll be buying 2-3 of them off the jump, one for home and one for each of my shops

It's a screwdriver.   There's a lot of great screwdrivers you can buy right now that don't have a middleman like LMG inserted in there adding cost for no benefit.  

 

FWIW ratcheting screwdrivers suck anyways because you need 2 hands for it and the mechanism just makes the whole thing a bulky package.    It's counterproductive for the screws you encounter in electronics.

How are you needing to use two hands? Im legit asking because ive been using them for well over a decade and never remembered using two hands on it?

Not if the screwdriver is any more than $50, even then thats a lot for a ratcheting screwdriver, but going by what LTT charges for their other merch I would expect at least $60.
The iFixit pro tech toolkit is $70, you get enough tools to disassemble a laptop or GPU, and well worth it IMO.

Because you're dealing with machine screws none of them are going to be able to overcome the backdrag on the ratchet mechanism unless you hold the shaft of the screwdriver or just spin the thing yourself.    Maybe it's helpful if you're installing wood screws but who does that by hand instead of a cordless driver nowadays?

 

I'm either using these

I see where you are coming from now. I work on cars and often dash screws can easily be tightened and loosened by the ratcheting screwdriver without running in to the issues you're talking about. But if we are talking STIRCTLY using it on a pc build I can see your objection even if I dont share it. Given the choice between a ratcheting sized screw driver and the ones you show I would take the larger ratchet handle, but I also have fairly big hands so that might have something to do with it.

Haha. To be fair. He has had his original SnapOn one for a long long time.

Eh. I have a Stanley FatMax ratchet screwdriver, definitely do not need to use 2 hands to use it..
