The Yankee-style rotating barrel screwdriver has been famous for decades, but in late 2007 we were informed by Stanley that they stopped production of all Yankee Screwdrivers.

We found a new source in Germany of comparable, if not better, quality. The only difference is a black handle. We are very sorry Stanley has made this decision but are glad to be able to offer such a high quality replacement.

They come with 3 bits (2 slot & 1 philips). All drivers have a 3-position selector: locked, spiral-in, and spiral-out. The medium size is 17" fully extended.

To increase the usage of the screwdriver we offer the Hex Driving Chucks. This chuck allows the Yankee Screwdriver to accept any 1/4" hex bit. All of the bits in our 102-Piece Bit set will fit.

We've introduced our new and improved model which is available in two sizes. The improved model is the same mechanism, but with the modern hex chuck built in.

function not form
Reviewed By:   (Millington, NJ) 
I recently recieved my great grandpa's Yankee Screwdriver but it only had a single bit so I ordered the replacement bits for it and the first set had a few kinks but the second work like a charm! that said they are not nearly as elegant as the ones pictured here or as the originals, still a functional tool that I love to have in my quiver.

I own this driver and have since 1974. I bought it at a lumber store as I was hanging doors an all types of hardware. It`s the best thing that I've ever done. My Yankee screwdriver has a red handle and I have all the bits that goes with it.

New life & compatibility for my 96 yr old 'Yankee' screwdriver.
Reviewed By:   (Philadelphia, PA) 
I inherited my 'Yankee' from my grandfather who bought it new from North Bros. It has always been a tool I could rely on, but I've often wished I could use different types of bits not made by North Bros or Stanley. The hex bit adapter answers this wish. I will enjoy the new enhanced variable use of my prized tool and pass it on to be used for another 100 years! Thank you Garrett Wade! May your company last as long!

Better than a cordless drill
Reviewed By:   (Los Angeles, CA) 
My 18v Bosch cordless drill is a nice tool, but even with its clutch, its more a tool of brute force than finesse. With this Yankee-style screwdriver, its easy to drive screws without "cam-ing out" the slot, precisely control the depth of a combination drill bit/countersink, or drive machine screws when installing outlets and switch plates. These factors alone would make it a great tool, but the features that make this tool a must have for me are 1) its quiet compared to my cordless drill, and 2) I'm never stuck midway through a job with a pair of dead batteries.

Yankee Screwdriver
Reviewed By:   (aldergrove, bc) 
I was so happy to find this - I remember it from when I was young, but thought it was gone forever. It is my favorite tool - doesn't need charging & gives so much control. My family have all asked for one for Christmas.
