Well made and good buy. Pay a little more and move up a lot in quality. They also offer other bits you may need. Case has room for additional bits. - Jackie
What can I say? After fiddling around with a big-name brand import "gunsmith screwdriver" set, I got tired of twisted & broken bits and blades and bought this. I wish I had bought this from the beginning. -Matt
Excellent set of ratchet screwdrivers IF you know what to use it for. Remember, you want the right tool for the job. If you read the product description Chapman screwdrivers are primarily designed or intended for gun smithing, DENTAL work, LAB work. So what this is telling you? This set of bits is not heavy duty, but rather light, detailed, precise work being gun smithing, or otherwise. If you try to remove a stubborn screw or really tight one to the max torque possible, this set is NOT for you. You would be better off getting a screwdriver set from HD or Lws. This set is for light gunsmithing jobs. The good thing is, if you break a bit you can buy a replacement, instead of trying to replace a rare, unique screw in your gun collection. So, if you don't want to get disappointed be aware of the limitations of this tool. The set comes in a nice handsome case, the bits are organized, the ratchet is fantastic. There is also a little "wheel" if you will, to apply gentle pressure. So you can apply pressure using only your fingers, the little "wheel" the handle, the screwdriver handle or the ratchet. All in all, it is a good set if you know what kind of jobs you can use it for. - Jose

Chapman Bits Vs. Other Bits
Chapman screwdriver bits are precision milled
It's a horrible feeling when you beat up a screw while tightening it with a poorly made screwdriver, and you know that screw is going to be difficult or impossible to remove without stripping it. Chapman bits are precision milled from US steel to tight tolerances, unlike many import bits which are made from compressed metal. Our SAE and MM metric hex bits have sharp corners and dead flat ends to bottom out in the screw and apply full torque to the screw edges and sides. Our slotted bits are gunsmith style hollow ground bits that fit the slot completely (unlike a typical tapered slotted screwdriver) and apply torque to the sides of the screw without marring it or camming out. We manufacture star/torx bits, star/torx bit sets and anti theft torx as well as many other types of bits to fit everything around your house, garage and work. More information on our bits.

Famous Offset Midget Ratchet - Reaches screws hex keys cannot!
Chapman mini ratchet reaches screws in tight spots
Our famous offset midget ratchet is the heart of every Chapman set and provides to key benefits for machinists; it can reach fasteners that cannot be reached with a regular screwdriver, stubby screwdriver etc. and once you reach the fastener, you can ratchet in place unlike a hex key where you're stuck removing it and re-inserting it into the fastener with each turn. Also, our midget ratchet is less than 4" long, has an 18 degree working arc, and provides up to 200" lbs of torque (approx. 4 times the torque available from a large screwdriver) in a tiny space. Those specs are important when you're trying to remove a stubbon screw that doesn't want to budge and it's located at the back end of your dishwasher or another awkward place.
