No one?

I just received my Wera screwdrivers today. Feel like quality made stuff.
The in handle storage of the bits is pretty impressive. So is how the shaft extends on the one and can be removed so you can chuck it in a drill.

The shaft on the ratcheting screwdriver is not removable, unlike my snap on ratcheting screwdriver.

But what I really like about the non-ratcheting Wera model with the removable shaft is the end of the shaft that goes into the handle is 1/4 inch hex just like the bits themselves.

My snap-on screwdriver with removable shaft is 1/4" square drive.

The way Wera designed their handle you can pull out the screwdriver shaft and insert other 1/4" hex bits directly into the handle.

Will try and post some photos of just what I'm talking about later, maybe this weekend.

Hope you find our site helpful.

Almost forget about the shape of the handle...

The handle is a bit odd when you look at photos of them, but the shape of the handle seems to fit my hand extremely well.

Haven't heard of them. Looks like a great tool set. I have to admit I'm a little skeptical whether all the moving parts will hold up. I've always been one to carry a few solid screw/nutdrivers haha

Let me know if they hold up!

Absolutely love Wera drivers.  My tool bag only has Wera or Wiha screwdrivers in it.  Both are German brands either made in Germany or in the USA (no 3rd world quality here).  I like the Wera handles better, but Wiha has a much better selection of tips and bits.  When looking for a security bit set, I spent the extra money and bought one from Wiha and haven't regretted it once.

Wiha makes a large variety of tools, and while they may not be my first choice in all categories, everything is top quality.   For what it's worth, I find Chad's Toolbox out of Wasilla has the best prices on both brands most often.  Been buying tools from him for years now.

I rarely use a regular screwdriver tool.  I'm always using my cordless impact screwdriver to remove and install everything.

SOOOOOOO TRUE. I will however, use a hand screwdriver to ultimately tighten some screws. O0 O0

Wera tools are excellent!  Have had them for years.  The pliers and side cutters are second to none! Only issue I have had is one screwdriver the handle got soft and rubber flakes away, other than that nothing.  Expensive but the best quality.
