This is a nice little screw driver combo but it is very definitely metallic. Not non-metallic. Do not try to use it to swing a compass.

As the others stated this screwdriver is attracted to magnets. I dont know what the term non-magnetic means to the seller. Very misleading!

This is an run-of-the-mill screwdriver handle that accepts standard 1/4 bits, but in no way is it non-magnetic. 3 stars for the average quality and value with 1 star deducted for the misleading description.

This screwdriver may be non magnetic, but its still made out of steel, so not really suitable for magnetometer/compass work.

Q: Is this 6-in-1 screwdriver magnetic or non-magnetic?
This screwdriver, part #12-14000, is non-magnetic.
Q: Does the non-magnetic description just refer to the method for retaining the driver bits or is it implying that the handle, bit holder and bits are made from non ferrous metals and are therefore non-magnetic and suitable for magnetically sensitive tasks such as compass removal/installation?
The screwdriver is made from ferrous metal and the only non-magnetic is in the screwdriver ball and spring load. It would not be accurate for compass removal/installation.
