Brownell's is saying they are 3-5 days behind shipping orders.

How do you like or rate their hollow ground screw driver sets?
Chapman? Grace?

I bought the full set in gunsmithing school. They work fine on regular everyday American guns with wide slots. I bought the thin bit insert set and they have been quick to break or bend. I keep forgetting to ask but I think Brownell's will replace the damaged ones as long as you do not grind on them. Truth be told......I like old Stanley screw drivers I can buy for 1$ at pawn shops. Excellent steel that hold up well. Grind to fit as you need.

Thanks SKB. I've heard that from other gunsmiths also. But for the casual user they should be fine?

yeah, I'm waiting on an order at least 5 days now. Normally, I get it within 24 hrs (they are close to me).

I have the thin bit set. I don't use them too often, but I have not broken any yet. I did manage to bend one slightly out of line however. They seem decent for the money.

I've used the thin blade set for years and had some tough screws. None have broke on me. And they mount in a drill press, which is my preferred method when fighting a grumpy screw. Strongly recommend. Problem I've had with carefully grinding old screwdrivers down to .020 is they all bend with just a little torque.

joe: before grinding, heat with torch till red, then let air cool...after grinding, heat with torch till red, then quench in used motor oil...should then be hard enough not to bend...plus, the torch creates nice colors on the metal...knuck, knuck, knuck...

Yeah, Ed. Then they will break and ruin the screw head or surrounding metal. Stick to what you know best, ruining gun frames.
