Can anyone help locate a Craftsman screwdriver that the fine folks at Craftsman say doesn't exist? A friend was helping me install an air conditioner last week and developed a crush on a screwdriver I have for getting to screws in tight spaces; it has "Craftsman 41380 USA" engraved on it, and it was given to me as a gift. (I shot a quick picture of the screwdriver
; it's best-described as a small metal donut with a rough outer edge and with a narrow cylinder sitting in the hole of the donut that accepts either hex bits or square bits.) About six months ago, I was able to walk into a Sears hardware store and pick two more up as a gift to give another friend, but now, the people at Sears and Craftsman say that that part number isn't valid, and that they've never heard of anything like I'm describing. Oddly, Googling for the part number
(and Yahoo!ing, and MSNing) doesn't bring anything up, either, nor does a search on eBay. Am I crazy, or has this incredibly useful screwdriver not only been wiped from the planet, but also from the annals of tool history?
