Default What do I need to search for - tool related

Hey all,

There are only a handful of forums I am active on - since I noticed we got some people here who are skilled with their tools, maybe someone can shed some light on my problem on this one.

I got a large number of bits (vintage?) that appear to be of excellent quality and the only thing missing is the grip handle. However they do not use the common hexagon shaped one, rather a cylindrical one with slots. I remember when I was younger these were not so uncommon.

I am having problems finding a suitable grip handle mostly because I have no idea how is this style called? Any tips what I should be looking for and possibly where to find it?

Thanks!

I used to have a screw driver that worked on a similar system, the handle had the slots in and you just interchanged the screw driver ends, can't remember the make name but I don't see them about these days.

Right, so I am assuming there must be at least 20-30 years old, but they are in great shape and it would be a shame not to use them.

Thanks, you're a star! I actually searched ebay for vintage screwdriver handle and similar, but it appears that "interchangeable" was the keyword here.
