That screwdriver was magnetic tip?
6:58 Did you stick your screwdriver into 120VAC 200A service line lug or is that like a sub panel or soemthing?
Years ago I bought a set of pliers and was made in China, after that I never buy wiha tools.
Great introduction. Great review.
Can an insulated screw driver like wiha can be magnetize and de magnetize using klein magnetize and de magnetizer. I need to buy wiha 32092 insulated screw driver but want to magnetize it and de magnetize depending from situation. Thanks from Phillipines.
Felo make great tools to. Did you know Orbis? its a Knipex Co Brand but i don't know about the Quality.
Want to buy Wera "Schraubmeißel"(screw-chisel) nearly indestructible i think!
What was the green wera extending driver model? Thanks
Chinese manufacturing is just a form of pollution. It should be illegal.

as an industrial electrician doing a lot of live troubleshooting, i view insulated tools as disposable. when used in a professional setting, the insulation is susceptible to getting worn or damaged, which renders them unsafe and useless. the only way i could see insulated tools being heirloom worthy would be if they're only used lightly and as necessary for their practical purpose in a home owner setting. i love the quality of feel of wiha drivers, but i'll stick to knipex for my pliers. good video!
It’s funny you should mention an old hammer. I have a hammer passed on from my grand father, to my father and now to me. Whenever I use the hammer I imagine my grandfathering working away with it, or remember seeing my dad using the same hammer.
1:47 on kids reaction 😝😝😝😝😝
To clarify your confusion about the Screwdriver sizes: Wiha is german and this kid was initially designed for the german market. As a german electrician, I never needed such a beefy screwdriver like your Klein for anything other than prying cases open. For which you don't want to use expensive insulated drivers.
too bad those rubber grips deteriorate over time. Long before they will be passed down, they'll start smelling like vomit.
Bud about the combo pliers they are actually a little smaller than most. Those duck bill pliers would be almost useless for electrical work
Dude, a big LIKE to u for the heirloom idea. God bless, this Russian approves 👍🏼🤝 🇷🇺🇺🇸
You will be proud to be electrician if you have electric tools. 👍👍👍👍👍👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
Wiha must pay you very well for this suck up! LOL!
Awesome review, German made tools are the best, I am a huge Knipex fan my selv. I just made a video review of the Knipex VDE 1000V screwdrivers. Check it out here, if you like: https://youtu.be/6hco-rQ5nCM

that warrning make it dangerous to buy tings on net on amazon Wiha 96706 Torx Screwdriver with Precision Handle, T6 x 40mm
Hey bro do you know if they are magnetic tips
Although the catalogue doesn't say very much about the colour range applications, I presumed that the microfinish is for Mechanics, Fitter & Turners, and Plumbers etc, hence use in wet & oily conditions. I had a look at their ESD (electro-static-discharge) screwdrivers/Torx etc (yellow handled) range in their catalogue and think it might be worthwhile purchasing a set for myself, just like their ESD tweezers for electronics or for working car electric/audio etc. Although, I just don't know if they are going to be expensive regarding their said application. However, It is a hard decision for most who can't afford very much too, yet I think once the person has purchased a set for excellent screwdrivers, or even 1 or 2, they will always try very hard to save to get something else good instead of the usual cheap shit that's thrust onto people out there. I bought a 6-piece Wera Kraftform Micro Screwdriver set that come with a stand very early last year, I haven't looked back since. Those shitty stanley, $2 shop and el-cheap precision screwdriver sets etc are a thing of the past. Cheers for the heads up here bud :-)
Great Video. Wiha has the micro finish on sale thru today. Going to order some now. Thanks a lot!
Good video love the channel 👍
This review was enormously helpful. Thank you.
Can you do a comparison between the Knipex screwdrivers and Wiha screwdrivers?
Germany tools are the best.
A wood handle shootout would be awesome, especially since you can't really find any useful videos on the wiha and wera versions.
Thank you for including weights of those tools! I often carry 1–3 with me on long bike rides (to help other cyclists and friends in the field), and every gramm makes a difference.
They need to bring back the dynamic handles 510 & 511 series.
Pico drive handle?
You do make the most informative videos. When you pick up a wiha screwdriver you feel the quality and there's no buyer's remorse. Excellent video
I"m sure in the UK the 3K are the previous style available , currently retailers have the (mainly) soft-finish which i now use @ work & a wiha multi-bit driver @ home :]
3-in-1? Where’s the Ballistol?
To me Würth screwdrivers have best handles I tried so far. They look similar to Wiha 3K series but almost whole handle is covered with that Softfinish rubbery material .
Tanks allot for this excellent video. Keep going!
The micro finish is from the Micron vapor chromed corrosion-resistant finish I would imagine.
You earned a subscriber from eevblog :) because you send that package.
Can I get a link I want to buy too. Thank you
Are the wiha soft finish screws 1000v
I do not like wiha's big screwdrivers because some of the shafts are hex shaped, or the tips are not flush with the shaft. Just overall bad design for screwdrivers.
Good vídeo thanks, Germany tools the best quality and biutiful very strong.😀😁😂😍😘😆
I have yet to find any Wiha product that is inadequate or poorly made....excellent company. Those screwdrivers will outlast you.
I bought all of the same screwdrivers. Love them all. I love good tools and these are by far the best money can buy
Screwdrivers are only as good as the metal at the tip. Wiha tips are great. There individual bits are great too, that is how I first discovered them many years ago.
Wiha and Kinpex. Nothing beats them.
Whia and Wera are great, ya get spoiled using the good stuff, never buy junk from china, GERMAN, tools are great.they fit. , they feel good in your hand, comfortable. There is a difference
Update: I managed to break the 8mm slotted screwdriver last week. I was using it to punch out some knockouts in a metal conduit box and managed to break a about half of the blade. That's the first mishap I've had with any of these drivers. @Chupria: I like the feel of the drivers in my hand. I don't have any Wera, so I cannot make that comparison.
Clever ergonomics, how the handles fit your hand, square parts for using a wrench, all great stuff, well thought out tools, DETAILS! It matters.
Whia are great stuff, comfortable, and just fits in your hand like it belongs, tips last and last. Great stuff. Wera is also great, buy quality, cheap junk is just junk. Quality from Whia, is better.
I have been coming back to this video a few times now. I was wondering if you find the handles too "bulby" in your hand? Also do you have a set of the Wera screwdrivers with steel cap. What who you think are better build the Wiha or the Wera impact drivers?
I was very disapointed with the extra heavy duty I bought the flat head 8.0x150 mm and the tip broke on its first use under normal use and for $17.00 you would expect more.
are these magnetic?
You got best German quality ;-) Other good German screwdrivers are from Wera. For pliers look for Knipex.
Thanks for the review im going to buy the Wera set!
3:16 That's what she said.
I've got some Wera screwdrivers that are over 20 years old now. Tough little suckers.
I like PB Swiss Tools
I prefer the Wiha myself. I’m an HVAC Tech. So i do a good bit of electrical. Love the Wiha. They are my go to.
Have you ever worked with some of these nut drivers? Its not about the colours. 99% of poeple just gibe a show of. Bad comparisons.
Like pls to get your opinion of those tests. Thanks
hi, I do not know English spoken, that's why I write to you, qualitatively it's better wera or wiha?
The Klein metrics have both color and numbers.
Has this guy ever worked with tools?
you must not use your tools very much. those wiha look brand new.
Germany tools the best quality.😍😍😍
Okay, nut drivers were never ment for high torque applications. If hand tight isn't tight enough then you need to get a wrench and finish tightening. Electronics repair is one such industry that uses nut drivers daily. Most of the time a nut driver is the tool of choice. Secondly, the color coded end happens to follow (more or less) the electrical color code, where black is the smallest and violet is the largest. In the case of the two reds, the diameter of the dot on the 1/2" driver is larger than the one on the 1/4" driver. I do not understand the difficulty here. Anyway, I like the color coding. It is very fast for me to find the right size, definitely much faster than reading sideways and upside-down fractions!
Love the WIHA handles , cant take to the wera shape , other faves are the old "england"Stanley "magnum" drivers :)
The only advantage of nutdrivers with a massive shaft is that their shaft is more slim. The shaft of nutdrivers with a hollow shaft is always more bulky.
i no on all ones i have had yellow was 5/16 and blue was 3/8 ie ones i always used but seemed always be thoughs colors
All professional USA nutdriver SAE sets for election are color coated for easy identification.
I wish Wiha would make these in their awesome MicroFinish along with the suggested improvements you made. That would be the ultimate nut driver set!
Wera or Wiha?? Wiha or Wera.?? I like both brands. I don't own any nut drivers but have a great selection of screwdrivers, bits, and various other tools. I love them both. Good comparison but I think it's a matter of preference. Shorter shafts on Wiha better for tighter areas. Stamped sizes on Wera better visual identification. I know the standard of SAE color coding but I would still prefer numerical stamps even better if they did a colored cap with fractional or decimal size. I would love to see hex bolsters on all of these. Kinda pointless without them I'm sure both of these sets are great quality and let the people argue that one is better than the other.
Usually when comparing shiny chrome to matte chrome- matte chrome is industrial HARD chrome, and is always dull silver. Shiny chrome AKA bumper chrome is much softer and less resistant to wear. Hard chrome is what is used inside machine gun barrels and will last literally decades longer than shiny bumper chrome. I'm not sure if that's the case here- and generally prefer Wiha to Wera, especially screwdrivers, but I'd take dull chrome on tool every day.
Also, I'm an electrician and if the colors are the standard used in the US (off the top of my head brown is 7/16, red is 1/4, yellow is 5/16), I prefer this to any type of marking. It makes identifying them in a bag or box much easier
