Detailed Description

Schroeder Spiral Ratchet Screwdrivers

Based on Stanley's Yankee-type screwdrivers, these are the original portable power drivers. A simple push operates these drivers in forward or reverse, and you can lock the clutch for high-torque manual driving as well. Schroeder's Spiral Ratchet screwdrivers have a durable chrome finish and painted wood handles. When you're not using you spiral ratchet screwdriver you can lock it in the closed position to save space in your toolbox.

  • Compact drivers are 13" overall length and generate 2 full revolutions for each 3" stroke. Closed length is 9quot;. It is similar in size to the Stanley 135 Yankee drivers.

We offer two types of spiral ratchet screwdrivers from Robert Schröder of Germany.

  • The Standard or Yankee-type driver uses traditional round shank bits with locking grooves like have been used in spiral ratchet drivers for many years.
    • The compact size uses 5.5mm (7/32") diameter bits.
      It includes three driver bits: one 4.5mm slotted, one 5.5mm slotted & one Philips #1.
  • The Hex-type driver uses standard, widely available 1/4" hex drive bits - more convenient, but less traditional. It has a threaded knurled locking ring to secure the bits in place so they don't come out on the return stroke. Hex drivers include three double ended driver bits: one 4.5mm slotted + Philips #1, one 5.5mm slotted + Philips #2 & one 7mm slotted + Philips #3.

Made in Germany

We offer a selection of replacement Yankee-type driver bits to fit these drivers. (And a few to fit the now-discontinued large version.)
