Name this tool

I''m looking for the name of this tool to purchase. I can't find it on sears, harbor freight, or anywhere. Could someone please help.

I thought it was called a nut driver. Anyway the tool I'm looking for is the one that looks like a screw driver, but holds sockets on the end of it. I've seen the nut driver sets with sae and metric in differn't sizes. But I would like to just have one that holds differn't sockets on the end, because it takes up less room in the tool box! I have one in my box from somewhere, but it is a little cheap one that I would like to replace with a name brand. Someone help me with this tool name. It obviously isn't as simple as a nut driver, according to the websites. lol

A true nut driver has the 'socket' built/cast as one with handle added. one per size.

at a loss for specific term, but you are looking for someting like an extension with a handle on the end. right? Maybe a socket driver? ugh, someone knows. Probably a snap-on guy on here, for $50 they'll hook you up.

Or --> http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...ewdriversmv=rr


But I would recommend buying a nut driver set instead. The problem with a socket driver, at least in the case of the Craftsman unit, is that it's cast Aluminum. It's brittle and if you try to TQ something, mind you I'm not talking Gorilla TQ, the hex opens up and the bits now fit loose. Or even worse you split the Aluminum wide open.
Whereas the nut drivers are Steel and can take more abuse and will not degrade with use.
Now granted the socket driver is handy for a good many things and saves return trips to the toolbox, but just be aware that is is not a quality tool by any means. It's simply a shortcut.

Hey, here is what I was looking for.
http://www.sears.com/michigan-indust...4&blockType=G4

I picked up two of them just in case one does bust. I love this tool to death already. It has a built in extension. You just pull the end down and the extension extends. Works great.
