Over at Amazon, this 6-piece Wiha t-handle ball hex driver set is currently on sale for under $11. We ordered a set for outselves a few months ago at a similar price, and they’ve been performing reasonably well. We’re not sure if this is a real sale or another instance of Amazon’s random low-pricing teasing, but the price […]
Wiha recently released new screwdrivers based off their SoftFinish cushion grip drivers. These new Measure-Up screwdrivers feature inch and metric measuring scales on the shafts of the drivers. Initially I was skeptical that these new drivers were just another “gimmicky’ tool but I was soon proven wrong, as you will see in the following hands-on review.

These folding rulers are waterproof, flexible, and extremely durable. Or are they? Jeff was kind of enough to put one of these rulers through a […]
Reader JeffD sent us another tip, this time about Wiha’s MaxiFlex folding rulers. These rulers are chemical, water, scratch, and impact resistant with deep embossed measurement scales. They’re also flexible and won’t rust or kink.
I’ve noticed Wiha’s Chip Lifter mini pry bars before, but hadn’t really given them much thought. These chip lifters are designed and properly sized to be used for the removal of IC chips and other electronics components. Reader JeffD wrote in about his experience with these mini prying bars:
