Mine's a Canadian version with 3 Robertson sizes (square). I wonder why Americans never adopted the Robertson screw it is far superior to the Phillips that seems to be the screw of choice in the states.

Sorry for bringing up an old thread. The Phillips is all about ease of manufacture. The Robertson is superior for servicin.  :)

PS I love my Picquic drivers.

I purchased 2 auto load screwdrivers vat Orchard Hardware for $6.99 each. Change the tips to torq, Robertson, and Phillips ( Harbor Freight has them cheap) and LOVE it. Just don't get it wet. the tips and workings rust up and jam. On the back up unit I lubed it with oil.

The place I ordered my Super 8 from years ago let you select what bits you wanted to come with the screwdriver.
Don't recall what the site was anymore.

Don't know just what 4 in 1 screwdriver you have from wall mart. But I have tried many 4 in 1 type screwdrivers from different hardware stores over the years and they don't come close to how well the Super 8 is built.

I find the weakest part of most 4 in 1 type screwdrivers is the nut driver part. The nut drivers on the Super 8 are very nice, heavy duty.
Hope you find our website helpful.
