An Innovative Take On The Classic
This driver is a recreation of one of the first designs of ratchet screwdrivers, the Weltrekord, an iconic tool from the 1950s created by Conrad Baumann. The Weltrekord ratchet drive is now a legendary tool known for its quality and reliability and is an auction piece.
The MetMo Driver is engineered to be a versatile and useful multi-tool to meet the needs of modern times: both a fidget toy and a handy tool. Thanks to the sturdy full metal construction, it is more efficient than standard screwdrivers, as they are usually made with plastics. It features durable and strong materials like hard-anodized aluminum and hardened martensitic stainless steel, so you know it is made to last for generations.
With this piece, each component interlocks perfectly, which is a fascinating sight. Even though pocket-sized, it’s able to handle quite a lot of tasks, as it can deliver up to 76Nm of torque. It works with all standard removable Hex drive bits and can also be used as a fully manual driver.
Compact and lightweight, with a no-slip design and no battery to worry about, this is a perfect gadget to always have at hand in your tool bag or backpack.
Coming with some pretty neat early bird specials starting at $129, we feel this tiny but mighty tool is definitely worth a look.
