Stainless Is as Stainless Does
Many marine fittings are made from stainless steel, and many tools are made with carbon steel. Problems can arise when carbon-steel screwdrivers interact with stainless screw heads; tiny bits of stainless from the screw head can lead to pitting or corrosion of the tool. Wera Toolss line of ergonomic, vacuum ice-hardened stainless-steel screwdrivers are just the thing for marine applications. Wera makes both modular- and fixed-head tools.
