    Well that would be a great idea.
    I have an e3...are those tools that would be appropriate for it?

    Don't the e9 small screwdrivers have a metal insert instead of a plastic one that came on later models?

    I’ve owned both, the plastic insert is very common, maybe 90% of the ones I’ve seen.

    I would assume it means that the plastic handle will insulate up to 10,000 volts. That is, if the metal part of the screwdriver touched something 10,000 volts from ground, you'd be just fine (even if you were barefoot, standing in salty water).

    But when I'm working around 10,000 volts, would I trust a used screwdriver that I bought on ebay ? That's another question!

    unless you are buying it from an early air-cooled porsche guy - as much as $250
