I have owned a set of craftsman screwdrivers for 20 yrs or so, made in good ol USA.. about 3 yrs ago while getting ready to put tools in long term storage, I decided to spray my entire tool chest down with lubricant and used Super Slick Slick Stuff..
Well now my craftsman and ONLY the craftsman handles all have a disgusting smell kind of like rotten cheese.
Other brands of screwdrivers, torx, nutdrivers have no issue .
I have tried soaking in vinegar overnight, and wrapping in motoroil soaked rags.. The stink remains and makes the whole tool box reek. I changed out drawer liners and have tried baking soda..
I really hate to get rid of them cause they all still work fine.. just need gloves everytime I use them..
