FYI: By accident I tripped over a little nifty addition to our kit in the Film and Digital Times (Sept. 2006) by Jon Fauer. (Pictured on page 11).

T-handle Tie-Down Screwdriver designed for and sold by: Boston Camera... Talk to Ben Woodard.

http://www.bostoncamera.com/

I don't think there is a picture on the website anymore, or not yet...

It sells for $19.95 and it's red by the way...

I ordered a couple.

I know I'm not the sharpest tack on the wall, but where on the site is this thing? Or can you post a picture?

I'm not implying that you are... There is none... that's why I wrote:

But what's a scanner for right?

Now you can get a version from Filmtools...

http://www.filmtools...crewdriver.html

I hooked them up with the company in Switzerland (Of all Countries on the planet...) and what do you know... the company stopped making them... great isn't it and to add to the insult: Craftsman is also holding production on the Stubby Screwdriver that everybody in our industry uses... They are just ignorant about the film industry... I guess...

You can still buy the Craftsman Screwdriver with the Number 7 blade, it's just going to be a foot long...

Oh well!

I got the Husky (brand name not pants size) version through Home Depot. Same #7, but not from Sears. I bought two as well, and put my name on it. Like that will help it stay put. ... maybe...

Bryan,
Was the Husky a T-Handle or just a Stubby? I can't find it online.

Dave,

It was just a stubby. FilmTools is the only place I've seen the Tgrip. I prefer the stubby though, simply for it's compactness.

Any idea where to find one now? Filmtools is out of stock and google is not helping.
