I was wondering and I been looking around the local hardware stores around here and I can't find a magnetic driver 3/16. all I can find is a set of nut setter electric screwdriver. what is the difference between a nut driver and a nut setter. Do you use a magnetic nut driver or a nut setter When I google it I find mix information about it.

the set I got sometime 5mm nut setter don't fit around the nut like say around the VGA port on the desktop and the laptop etc then I have to use a nut driver screwdriver not electric then i can remove it.

thanks for the help...

There is no such thing as a nut "settler" but a nut setter and driver are essentially the same thing. Let me know what tool you get and why. Scott.

I think they would be fine. I've been magnetizing my tools for years, it helps for holding non-stainless steel hardware. Scott.

Search and ye shall find. I'll add that I use very strong NIB magnets removed from discarded hard drives to magnetize my tools. I have several of these magnets on all of my toolboxes just for that purpose. Scott.
