    I just saw this new item in the OpenBuilds store and it made me very happy:

    Balldriver Screw Driver Set

    These are normal grippy screwdrivers, but they can be used to drive any of the cap screws that are so ubiquitous when dealing with aluminum extrusion. They are ball-end so you can tighten even at a small angle.

    You don't have to buy the OpenBuilds store version of them, but I highly recommend you get them from somewhere. I got a set myself a couple of months ago and they are a revelation if you are using a lot of cap screws. Now I'm happy whenever one is nearby and sad whenever I have to go back to the L-hex wrenches or T-hex wrenches. I recently ordered a couple extra sets just so I would always have one on hand.

    That's good to hear. Getting a lot of good feedback on that set and a lot of builders are picking them up.
