    Wera vs Wiha

    I was just at the same point myself. Ordered a set of chisel drivers from each manufacturer. I will post back once they get some time on them. 1 thing is for sure though, these things are built like tanks.

    Yes I agree Klien is problably the best but also usually the most expensive. Craftsman make good screwdrivers as do Stanly. Stanly also has a design similar to the klien cushion grip,it even looks close to the same and is a little cheaper. Just giving you some ideas if you dont want to spen alot.But klien is my choice as evinenced by my choice of tool bags.

    I got my veto.I have a history of losing tools. I am hoping veto eliminates this. Someone could have some nice tools following me up and down roof hatches.

    When I first started I was all about Klein... then I lost them... about 2-3 times...

    Now I buy whatever feels good and works well and I don't care if it will be crap in 1-2 years, cuz I will probably leave it up on a ceiling tile or inside a roof top unit before then.

    I take that back I still have one faithful, useful and CHEAP Klein 11-in-1... I usually have 2 or 3 of these on-hand around the house/office/truck.

    I was the same way till I got my Klien tool tote.Before I would just use an old belt pouch or the cheap plastic boxes. I broke down and bought the klien bag while at home depot and since I havnt lost any tools! Cany believe how that bag has helped.I can see most every thing at a glance and know when somethng is out of place or missing.I was the worst loosing tools.Ill bet ive lost well over $1,000.00 on klien linesman pliers alone.Its really nice with my tools being organized. It makes for alot easier work.

    I'd bet, I haven't lost no more than 4 tools in the last 30 years. Take that back, just lost a cheapo G&B fishtape recently.

    I lost an 8" Proto Clikstop adjustable or thought I did.

    It hapened to turn up one day in a plumbers tool bucket. When he broke for lunch I retrieved my wrench. Hell, he never missed it.

    +1 for Wiha. The best phillips I've ever owned. The flats are great screwdrivers, now use my larger Kliens for prybars too.
