Is Robertson the square bit? Nobody uses that name around here, at least not that I’ve heard. Here they’re just called #1 or #2 square bits

But if it is the square bits, I love those.
I bet you call Phillips star heads too. You disgust me.

It’s called a Robertson and you guys don’t want to get onboard for some reason.

Patented in 1909, the square-drive screws only began appearing in U.S. specialty wood shops in the mid-1980s. American furniture, appliance and mobile-home industries use them, but the classic Canadian fastener is still virtually unknown to do-it-yourself home renovators. Home Depot reports Robertson screwdrivers account for less than 5 per cent of sales in the United States. In Canada, that figure jumps to roughly 55 per cent.

Mr Robertson worked day and night to perfect his screw, the least you yahoos could do is put some respect on his name!
We typically call them red/green Robby but the millennials are ruining it. If I use a number then have to explain that a #1 is used for a #8 screw and so on. I have a set of insulated Klein drivers coming and I can’t wait to crush some screws in live panels with them. Very exciting time.

No mention of black Robby? Racist

Rarely used but an important at tool. It’s a sensitive issue that needs to be brought up at the right time.

Sorry, buddy. Are you still on full lockdown? Are people still not getting vaccinated?

you can come down to Tx anytime. We have plenty of room and lots of tacos.
I’m in isolation because of exposure. Longer isolation period for me because I tested negative.

Klein makes fantastic screw drivers. You're a man of taste and sophistication.

That sucks, man. How much longer in isolation? Is Canada still a shit show with getting vaccinated? If you wanted to get one, can you?

Hope you and those close to you continue to be healthy/test negative.
