Professional-quality automotive tool specialist, Mac Tools, has added a ¼in ratchet screwdriver to its range. An incredibly useful tool, the SBDR8 can be used in place of a set of standard screwdrivers and in many cases is easier to use.

The three-position, 45-tooth ratchet mechanism means that users no longer need to constantly stop and adjust their grip position when tightening or undoing fasteners. This is generally the case with traditional screwdrivers and is especially common when working in confined spaces. With the SBDR8, the process is made faster and smoother while reducing strain on the wrists.
