Back in the 80s when i was a bench tech for the Skil Corp...we took the nose piece off a drywall gun and it was the primary screwdriver we used everyday...Just drilled holes in the workbench to arrange all the different driver bits
An excellent tool when you get the feel for the torque...

No idea on the homemade hilljackery. Looks more like an experiment than a tool.

The iron powder from a Future Scientist kit...1960s...is really useful for diagnosing noises in Generac engines...
You just add 2 tablespoons of the powder to the engine oil and after a few minutes... the engine noises just stop...

Yep just like Slick 50 in a Kohler. Quiets them lifters right down.
