A prince amongst screwdrivers...
on 15 February 2013
Now there's only certain people (like engineers!) who could get excited about screwdrivers - I showed it to my wife and she wasn't the least bit impressed; but I have to say this screwdriver is fantastic as you would expect being made by Wera.
The ratchet action is very fine and the direction selector/lock is nice and precise. The magnetic holder is very strong and it will accept any standard (25mm long) hex bits you already have in your toolkit.
The best bit is the handle! It's very comfortable in use but press the flush green button on the top (à la James Bond Aston Martin ejector seat style) and the handle springs open and reveals storage for 6 hex bits (supplied) inside - very cool and great for impressing fellow engineers, but not so much the wife (unless of course she's an engineer too!).
The dimensions on this page seem to be wrong; overall I would say its 215mm long with a blade length of 100mm.
Useful, cool and a screwdriver - what more could you want! (apart from the great price I paid on Amazon!) - Brilliant!
