The bits are nice, too.
Be warned, though, the belt-loop thing on the back of it is purely decorative and will pop off at the first sign of actual use. I'm actually deducting one star from an otherwise perfect product for this; the ingenious design of the case would be perfect to wear on my belt, if suitable accommodations were provided.
The ratchet is nice, the bits are bits. The gold color in the image implies the diamond coated bits (as in Wera 8700-6/PH BDC BiTorsion Diamond Coated Rapidaptor Bit-Check, 7-Piece), but they are not. They are in fact identical to other bits. The bits are not stainless either (if you were thinking that the silver color might imply this.) None of this is to say that the bits are not made in the same quality as other Wera bits, just that they are not as they appear to be in the image.
More importantly, the case is really terrible. It is just low quality plastic, the belt clip is useless, the case in general will be broken and gone long before the tools are. That is sad because the case is a lot of what makes this set a "set", and comprises a lot of its utility to me. (Compare to the absolutely awesome cases that a Zyklop wrench set comes in, and you'll see why this was such a let down for me.
So, though the tools themselves are of the German quality one expects from Wera (if not what one might expect from the imagery), the case screams "made in China" (or, if you prefer "crap"). I don't know what to recommend. You won't get a better tool elsewhere, that I can think of, but you won't get the case/tool set/unit that you are expecting if you buy this. Sorry.
Final note, If you like the aesthetic of the Wera tools, you will probably find that little wrench a little awkward looking. Hardly a major issue, but it has a certain "this one doesn't belong with the others" ambiance which I think my ancestors would have found "not very German".
Fifth and most important is function. This set serves several purposes. It can replace stubby screwdrivers in most circumstances and give you ratchet function, reversible by the way. It can get into the tiniest of locations for electronic work.
Plug in the 1/4" socket driver and add your favorite needed socket and it's a super micro ratchet set.......uses go on and on.
As far as appearance and aesthetics, will good Lord, again, think Swiss watch.
One thing to ponder, and it's not a negative, is some bit re-ordering. There are (1) of each bit included except you're given: (2) #1 PHILLIPS, (3) #2 PHILLIPS, and (3) #2 SQUARE. That's 5 DUPLICATE BITS that WERA put in and for good reason, they're most commonly used and add a result likeliest to get lost, worn down or broke. However, if you're like a lot of us and have extra bits but instead prefer to round out THIS set, then ditch the extras and order the three slotted available that aren't included, and the #0 and #4 SQUARE not included. They only give you one slotted size btw. You can literally order these five bits for 6.37 plus shipping on the www.
Then you'll have a much wider assortment of SLOTTED and SQUARE to go with your SAE HEX, TORX, and TORX BO instead of duplicates. That's my recommendation. Enjoy this set, you will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!Read more ›
