Ok yes I started a screwdriver. I come from several walks of life, I grew up working on a farm, ran about 2500 head of cows and fed out about 4000 yearlings ;every year. Also farmed about 30,000 acres of row crops including corn, cotton soybeans, peanuts, and at one time potatoes and butterbeans, milo (the devil), wheat etc. I drove a truck hauling cows for a couple of years as well but at one point took a job as a millwright trainee in a hardwood flooring mill. Worked up from there to a "precision maintenance tech" and then from there into automotive manufacturing. Also in there I went to college and got an associates degree in electrical technology. Now where this is headed is I've got everything from Snap-on to klein to craftsman to napa brand screwdriver and probably leaving a few brands out oh I do have some Kobalt also. What I have come to find working on chainsaws is that the screwdrivers with the rubber grips, whether thick rubber or just a thin layer of cushioning, do not seem to stand up to either the gas, oil or degreasers. I have several now that the handle has become sticky even after cleaning with like simple green or going in and cleaning it in the sink with dawn. The hard plastic handle screwdrivers of course stand up well with no issues. I have worked in gas, diesel, oil etc all my life (ag chemicals and fertilizers too) Now I don't remember exactly which screwdrivers were exposed to what but has anyone else experienced this with any screwdriver or am I the only one? if so I wonder if its cleaners such as carb cleaner, brake cleaner and so forth that's doing that or if its the fuel?
