I (often enough) find myself tinkering with things like my laptop, gpu(s) and on occasion a mouse or two. Thing is, the screws are so damn tiny that I either damage them or rarely even dont get them open. I have a couple of jeweler set, but obviously either they are dirt cheap, hence useless, or I havent found the proper one. A quick search mentioned something about "high precision" screwdrivers.

So, any advice you peeps can bless a noob with on what is a solid screwdriver and/or set to get?

I was looking at this one, but don't want to buy unnecessary crap that will just go to waste.

Leatherman Surge + Bit Kit



Could never find a decent kit of those screwdrivers either, my dad still has a box from 70s without a single breakage.

That's the thing. Maybe they stopped making them decent since the 70s then :/

I bought this set off Aliexpress Click Me. For a cheapy set, it has worked well in my opinion. The quality is decent and the heads on the bits don't strip easily. The bonus is that while being cheap, it comes with almost any driver head you would need for small electrical DIY.

I bought this, very good quality, the only issue is the strong smell of the "leather" bag. Some might say it stinks but its not too bad for me.
