    New Durable LENOX® All-in-One Screwdrivers

    Sep 18, 2006

    EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. — LENOX, a leading manufacturer of premium power tool accessories, hand tools and band saw blades, today introduces its new super-durable All-in-One Driver line of 6-in-1 and 9-in-1 screwdrivers for plumbing and HVAC professionals. LENOX All-in-One Drivers offer tremendous convenience and value for the professional user thanks to their sturdy construction, highlighted by thicker-walled shafts and high-grade steel bits. Longer lasting, strippage-resistant drivers and bits enable the user to stay on the job longer, spending less time — and money — replacing parts.

    Both the 6-in-1 and 9-in-1 versions feature thicker, heat-treated shafts that are 20-25 percent thicker than competitors’ drivers, making the All-in-One highly resistant to strippage. Special flanges under the handle anchor the shaft and provide superior twist resistance, while a comfortable, cushioned rubber grip helps ensure a firm grasp and maximum torque.

    The precision-machined tips included in both sets further increase performance and life thanks to super-tough S2-grade steel construction.

    “The number one reason users replace these tools is because of strippage inside the shaft,” said Emily Furnal, product manager for hand tools, LENOX. “To combat this, we’ve made the shaft thicker on the LENOX All-in-One Driver so it will last longer. And we made the bits from S2 steel — the same grade used in the construction of power tool accessories. It has a tensile strength that is considerably greater than carbon steel. These tools, made from the highest quality materials and precision-designed to the highest standards to be the longest lasting and best performing available, will provide professionals tremendous value and enable them to work more accurately and efficiently.”

    The 6-in-1 LENOX All-in-One Driver features the following bits:

    • 5/16” nut driver

    • #1 Phillips

    • #2 Phillips

    • 1/4” slotted

    • 3/16” slotted

    • 1/4” nut driver
