Hi, Good Day from the Texas. I picked up a Hermes spiral ratcheting screwdriver at a garage sale. The tool is made in Germany. I tried to find out some info on it and cannot find anything. I searched Yahoo and E-Bay an they do not show anything. I just like to know a little bit about the tool and the company. Thanks, Chris

Mid Century Hermes Spiral Ratcheting Screwdriver w Germany | eBay

If this is like your new acquisition, it looks like the Yankee screwdrivers my Dad had (now I have them). Real popular back when I was a kid, and save the twisting of the wrist. I also have a drill that operates the same way.

It might be hard to believe but there was a time when many households didn't have any power tools, not even a drill.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
