Abstract (en)

A sleeve (18) is rotated to a position in which an aperture (21) is in register with a tool-bit receiving recess (8) in a body (7) rotatably mounted on the shaft (1) of a hand tool such as a screwdriver, so that a tool-bit (9) can be removed from or inserted into that recess in a direction transverse to the axis of the shaft (1). The sleeve (18) surrounds a rear end portion of the body (7) so as to prevent escape of tool-bits from the recesses (8) while leaving the tool-bits partly visible. <IMAGE>
