Now That’s A Lot Of Tool Options!
It goes without saying that your pit space probably has a decent variety of tools including hex and nut drivers to build, maintain and fix your radio-controlled cars and trucks. Besides cars and trucks, most pit spaces in this day and age feature a variety of electronics devices including tablets, smartphones, laptops and much more. I’ve seen more than a few people panic in the pits when they drop their phone resulting in a cracked screen or their laptop takes a hard tumble. Unfortunately, fixing these items requires a different set of tools than what most people keep handy. So when a new to me tool company contacted us to see if their tool set would work for hobby use and more, I was interested to check it out. Syntus sent us this 60-in-1 tool set and it appears to have plenty of bits and a nice driver handle, but will it get the job done?
It is hard to believe that the small yellow case that I received from Syntus keeps 56 different bits well organized. What bits are included you ask? Well, let me list them for you:
Nut Driver Size: 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5 PH2
Hex Size: 0.7, 0.9, 1.3, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 6.0
Torx Size: T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7
Torx Security: T8, T9, T10, T15, T20
Flathead Size: 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0
Phillips Size: PH000, PH00, PH0, PH1, PH2
Pentalobe (Apple nomenclature) Size: 0.8, 1.2, 1.5
Tri-point Size: Y0.6, Y2.0, Y2.5
Triangle Size: 2.0, 3.0
Spanner Size: 2.6, 3.0
Square Size: SQ0, SQ1, SQ2
The bits are made from top quality S2 shock resistant tool steel that is much more solid than normal chrome-vanadium steel that many lower quality tools are made from.
These bits fit securely into the lightweight driver handle and are magnetically held in place until you decide to swap the bit out. Three adapters are also included: a flex shaft to help get at hard to reach spots, a high-speed adapter bit for use with electric screw drivers and the like and 2.24” extension rod.
So far I’ve wrenched on a broken 1/18-scale car on my bench and was able to easily remove and replace a shock tower with the included 5.5mm nut driver bit along with the 2.0 and 2.5mm hex bits. I’ve also used the various other bits to fix my friends tablet and a laptop. The bits are super strong and the driver handle has a good feel too. The only downside is the grip of the handle isn’t big enough to allow enough grip to remove screws that are really torqued down in place. However snugged up screws are easy to wrench on. Best feature of the set is everything fits neatly into the yellow case and takes up relatively no space on your work surface. Costing just $13.99 the Syntus 60 in 1 Precision Screwdriver Set is an exceptional value making it easy decision to add to any collection of tools.
