Hi there..
I've been looking for a good screwdriver for some assembly requirements. I'm looking for anything that has a changeable speed and can preset the torque and is both good and reliable. I'd like to have several of them in my toolset, each suited to a different type of fastening job. A manual torque screwdriver with a distinctive grip design was recommended by a friend. I don't want to spend too much also. I would be grateful if you could make any other recommendations..

Whia is a German brand, high quality. I used a Whia torque screwdriver 6 in lb on terminal blocks. The torque setting was done with an easy to use tool. Seems like it was $100. I had a Klien torque screwdriver, I did not like it and was not able to go to the low torque I needed.

Isn't the OP spam? How do you "set the speed" on a manual screwdriver? I figure any post by a new user with an embedded link to a product is likely to be spam.

I think there are two items here. One is the recommendation he received, and the other is looking for a power tool with settable characteristics. I glanced at some of the other items on the web site and it looks like they have stuff you can do that with.

I see a moderator edited the post.
Perhaps one deleted the hyperlink?

Thank you for your suggestion
