best nipple driver out there. (when i bought it the shop guy cut a spoke and smoothed the cut end for me). If you are crafty this also works great to keep nipples from falling out when building deep dish carbon wheels (like 35mm wide mtb wheels). This thing was designed to go on the end of a drill and lace spokes extremely fast to your specified perfect threading. If you use a spoke wrench in one hand and the driver in the other, you can tighten further than with the driver alone (further into the build, when you would simply use the spoke wrench and count your turns, this extends how long you are getting a uniform threading). This thing made my wheel building faster, better, with less hassle. I can't imagine how fast this thing would work on the end of a drill.
Summed up: Problem solvers is such a cool company. Makes me proud to live in Minnesota.
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

First off, this product requires and old cut off spoke to be used as a depth gauge, which for 30 bucks, it should have came with one. No problem. I used and old 14 gauge spoke and made one. Except that 14 gauge, which is the most common spoke there is is too big. Tried to drill it out to accept my spoke and the bit broke inside of it rendering it useless. Waste of money. If you have truing stand and dishing gauge you don't need this. My wheels came out great without it.
