But do these tools have SKILs to pay the bills?

What are you thinking woot? nobody will buy these when they aren't holding up a woot-off.

Edit: Buy 3! Prevent a future woot-off killer!

Well then I choose you easy turn 25 piece set!

If this is a Skil Tool Set, does that make the cast of Jersey Shore and unSkil tool set?

This is a fantastic deal. I purchased a similar set at home depot for 3 times the amount. In for two.

I live paycheck to paycheck thanks to woot.

Woot sure loves their screwdrivers. I've got a couple of these and they're pretty handy, so I guess you could say I do, too.

These are not worth the price when you have to add shipping. Home depot has been running a lot of cheap in-store low quality tools of this type (for the junk drawer or wife) that all seem to be of better quality and comparable price.

So... which is going to sell out first? I've noticed the cheaper sets like this have a tendency to sell out? So... bets anyone?

No, it just makes them stupid excuses for human beings. Btw, I heard that the one called "snooki" is gonna have a baby. Upon hearing the news, I wept for humanity and have contemplated building a giant laser that will destroy the world and everything in it just so I don't have to live in a world where snooki is responsible for raising a human into adulthood.

I got the "Precision Screwdriver Set" somewhere: highly useful for working on laptops and R/C helicopters.

Has Flat, Phillips, Hex and Star tips in many tiny sizes. While the handle portion is cheap, I've stripped screws before I destroyed the bits... which was not expected.

I've been here longer than WootBot.

The precision set is incredibly useful. Surprisingly enough, I ruin screws before I ruin bits. I didn't expect that level of quality from something this cheap.

so $9.75 with tax in store or $8 with shipping on w00t....not THAT fantastic of a deal...

"Palm Driver Set"; is it something the a pliers that you press to tighten/loosen!!

I can't speak for the other sets, but the precision screwdriver sets that I wooted well over a year ago still serve me well. The great thing about this particular set is that the bits snap into the holding case securely. Most inexpensive sets like this are so poorly made that when you barely move the case all the bits fall out of place. Because the bits stay where they should in the case I have managed not to loose even one one bit in over the years' time!

My guess is that Woot's shipping department needed some downtime?

Skil's tool sets are pretty good value. They're cheap, and relatively good. I'd recommend picking up 3 (save on shipping), and they'll last you a while.

You're right! But only if you get one set.

I've gotten these before, and found them to be quite reliable. Chuck the extension piece in your cordless drill, and you have a cordless driver.

Get 3 sets, to make it more frugal. You're not going to find bits this inexpensive.

I can vouch for the multi-bit screwdriver's usefulness. I have one for home and for work, and love them.

I have arthritis and the T-handle set looks like it would be perfect for me. Sometimes my grip doesn't work very well, and for the price, I think I will buy a set for my mom as well. Thanks woot!

Anybody know if the precision set would have bits small enough to deal with a digital camera? The screws on the camera are eyeglass-screw sized (in other words, teeny-tiny).

Just picked up the easy turn and precision sets. Thinking I should have gone with the T-handle as well. It is not too late...

My night will be filled with contemplation now.

Anyone have insight into how the automatic bit changer works?

quality posts: 1 Private Messages Dhaishan

Extend to access extra bits, rotate to choose desired bit, push the bit through chamber to replace then finalize by rotating the bit to adjust ratchet direction

These are at Home Depot for the same price, minus the ridiculous shipping charge.

Please clarify - does the easy turn 25-piece driver set come with a storage case? Pictures include the case, but the description does not.

I feel like such a shill tonight, but it would be ideal for camera work. All the bits are the sizes you see in eyeglass repair kits.

Trying to find out if the automatic bit changing screwdriver is worth it.

QVC has it for $16 after shipping, with 5 reviewers rating it 4.5 stars.

There is only one review at Compusa, but its positive.

I guess Ill grab one and try it out.

Yes, it should be as you see it in the case. I'll email for them to verify in the morning but I don't expect any surprises.

Bought 2 other skil sets (screwdriver and socket set) the last time they were on here and keep them in my car... They have proven useful more than a few times!

In for 3 MORE different ones since I get charged shipping and tax anyway!
Go Woot!

FWIW, I buy 3 of these when they come up (a different set each time) and stick them in my closet for Christmas presents to my 2 nephews and brothers. They're great filler presents.

Home Depot carries Husky, not Skil, bit they are essentially the same tools made in the same factories. Considering you can get three for $15 with tax on woot, its a bit cheaper to go with woot! than it is Home Depot, and definitely not 'ridiculous' shipping.

Hey Woot.. why don't you put the word "or" between the sets names instead of commas?

If Joss Whedon and Steven Moffat wrote a story together, nobody would live to the end.
