Hex Bit Adaptor for Yankee Srewdrivers 8mm (5/16")
19 August 2016
A wonderful investment!Being somewhat old-fashioned I prefer to use my old Yankee 131 rather than the Bosch electric screwdriver I have inherited. Moreover one gets FAR more torque with the Yankee than with the 18.V Bosch. But finding the right Yankee bits at the bottom of my toolchest is not always easy. But with this adaptor I can use and find easily the full range of hex bits from their rack.

Good all aroundI bought one of these for a Stanley 131B. The adaptor holds the bit very well, the red collar slides back and then locks it in place. It's also magnetic, which is what stops the bit shooting across the room when you slide the collar back to remove it. There's a small amount of play between the screwdriver and the adaptor, but almost none between the adaptor and the bit. I haven't weighed them but the adaptor + hex bit feels about as heavy as the one original Stanley bit I have for the screwdriver. Overall very pleased, especially considering how much cheaper this was than a lot of similar tools on eBay.
