The so-called work must first sharpen its tools if it wants to do a good job. I have been in contact with the special industry for 7 years. Used tools from domestic to Taiwanese products, to now foreign products.
WIHA and WERA are German brands, while PB is a Swiss brand. WIHA is still produced locally in Germany, but its quality has deteriorated significantly. WERA IS NOW MAINLY PRODUCED IN THE CZECH, PARTLY MADE IN TAIWAN, WHILE PB SWISS IS A FAMILY-OWNED COMPANY AND PRODUCES ENTIRELY IN SWITZERLAND. It is worth mentioning that PB is engraved with an SN number on each tool, and the appearance time can be queried through the official website from the source of the material and the time of the manufacturing step, and the non-consumable goods are guaranteed for life within the normal use range, and it is said that they reach the level of producing weapons. No more nonsense, watch the film.
WIHA screwdriver wire pliers
The purchase price was 150
The outer packaging of WIHA
A set of hand-held kits
The traces of the use of the cross head are obvious, in fact, only a dozen screws have been twisted
New header close-up
The screwdriver has a chrome plating surface. The tip has a matte coating that can bite the inside of the screw tool hole, but the coating is very weak and very easy to wear. As a virtue tool, it’s a little too… Is it OEM again, but the tool is engraved with the words Made in Germany. A good screwdriver has a hardness of about 56 to 58HRC. The most important thing is whether the screw and tool bite is perfect, and the size of the contact area directly affects the slippage probability between the screwdriver and the screw tool groove. The hardness of the bits can be seen by the degree of wear when they are first used.
WIHA wire cutters
Purchase price 180
The characteristic curvature of the jaw nozzle
It is worth noting that, contrary to screwdrivers, WIHA has only been in the industry for a few years, but this wire pliers has almost the same quality as KNIPEX (the world’s top pliers brand), and the combination and flatness are very good. The blade is very flush and can cut hair strands as well as a corner of a sheet of A4 paper. Of course, the official report of hardness reaches more than 62HRC. The surface of the clamp body is chrome-plated.
Wera has this one on hand. For the lowest grade 02 years of old goods, the batch workmanship can be compared to see that the hardness is also higher than WIHA. WERA does not have any anti-slip coating on this blot, the black is hard coated, and the rod is also chrome-plated. The design of the batch head is completely different from the WIHA style, WIHA feels less secure, the head is large and the body is small.
Wera electric and manual bits are available
The purchase price at that time was 50 a box
The German WERA diamond-coated blot, to be honest, did not feel that it had any big effect. But the origin of this batch still sounds pretty bullish. It can be seen that the area wrapped in the middle green is to alleviate the torque area, and WERA has heat treated this segment, and the middle section reduces the hardness, so that the bits can bear torque less, thereby reducing the chance of blotch damage.
8001A ratchet wrench, really small in size, but really powerful
The starting price is 550
Picture taken when the bud is not opened, made in the Czech Republic ~~~~~~~~~~~~
The number of bits is large enough for daily maintenance and maintenance
Connection rod with lock, of course, the bits can also be connected directly to the wrench
Convenient small and cute. The whole ratchet wrench is forged, the length is about 1CM longer than the cigarette box, and the official torque bearing is 60N, but some people abroad use afterburner rods to remove the car wheel screw (the tight torque on the hub screw is 100N). With this gadget, it is easy to remove the screw at a tight angle, and the twisting angle needs 6 degrees. The batch header uses 1/4
The sleeve needs to be converted. THE MATCHING SLEEVE WENT FROM 5.5 TO 13MM, MISSING A 14MM, AND LATER ADDED ONE. GENERALLY COMMONLY USED SLEEVES ARE 10MM AND 14MM.
WERA lengthens the inner hexagons of the ball head
It is now produced in the Czech Republic. Origin, you can see the picture I sent for reference. The starting price is 230
The set I bought at that time was an Allen of the old German original. Because I usually love bicycles, I bought more 5MM for easy use, and the separate ones are made in the Czech Republic. The difference can be initially seen with the naked eye. I haven’t found anything in hardness yet. I have used countless brands of Allen, and in the end, I still love WERA. For the time being, only WERA’s hexagon is patented, and this patent is really practical, and the contact surface is increased by 20%.
Traces of use of the contact surface are clearly visible, but the edges and corners are still clear. Twisted through 64 titanium alloy screws N, also still strong. The surface is a hard coating. This thing rusts when not in use…
The design cut of the hexagons is obvious. Tool hole damage is reported as officially indicated. Worth a thumbs up!
PB SWISS TOOLS
PB adheres to the tradition of a family business, insisting that all processes in Switzerland are produced and audited in-house
A certain treasure started at 370 at that time, and the price of overseas shopping had no advantage
This set was chosen at that time because of the durable and oil-resistant, impact-resistant handle. The LOGO model and the batch rod are horizontally opposed, and the workmanship is now one of the few in the industry
The most noteworthy thing is that the SN serial number on the rod can query the source of the material and the date when the audit is passed to the factory. If the tool is damaged within the normal use range, you can query which link is the problem, of course, PB will also mail you a new fertilizer ~~~~~
This is after a few months of use, the blot is still firm ~~~
PB headings are designed to be parallel, and ordinary blotted heads are cut down. Parallel increases the contact surface between the bits and the slotted screw, even if the force is large, it is not easy to slip and cause damage to the screw tool groove.
There are 4 sticks in total, and the average price is 90
Insulation series, you can also guess my work. The most commonly used models. The handle is soft rubber and thin, allowing quick rotation of the rod during operation. A qualified insulation tool, must be soaked in a liquid with current 1000V, DC 1500V voltage is not conductive to be considered a qualified product, on the handle can see the International Electrotechnical Commission and the international insulation tool LOGO and number.
Close to the workmanship of crafts.
PB precision drivers
The starting price is 77 each. No discounts
PH0 and PH00 double-headed precision drivers, usually buy this if you use less. Province~
PB ratchet screwdriver
Forward and reverse and lock. Some people here must say that I am stupid, why buy so many screwdrivers. Egg pain?
An experienced electrician can indeed do a lot of work with just a large one-word measuring pen. But a set of qualified and high-quality tools can allow you to complete the work faster, save a lot of unnecessary losses, and provide higher efficiency.
In the cartridge magazine, I replaced the original hexagon with the more commonly used WERA cross head.
PB SWISS TOOLS HEADERS
The bits are all ratchet screwdriver sets
The manufacturing process, you may not notice, PB bits are colored, is plasma coating. The function is to prevent rust and make it easier to identify the batch model. The cost of plasma coating treatment is much higher than that of ordinary coating. European tools, love rust, favorite ~~~~~
Tool maintenance ~~~~~
Purchase price 20
There are tools that must be maintained. Please note everyone. Many people like to use Fairy Water WD40. WD40 is clean and lubricated, and rust removal comes at the cost of corrosion. So I chose No. 2 protective oil. Mainly anti-rust, without any lubrication and cleaning effect. As for what the No. 2 protective oil is, this thing is also a very high Dongdong ~~~~ (It is said that it is used to wipe the cannon.) ）
Next to it is the magnetizer, the requirements for magnetizing the screwdriver ~~~~~~ magnetizer are not high, and the PB magnetization of colleagues is just that, I decisively choose the cost-effective old A~~~~
Bosch GSR 10.8 V-EC
At that time, the shopping price was 899.Now it seems that the price has increased. Upgrade 2.0AH battery with ticket
EC stands for Brushless Motor. For easy portability, I changed into an IOX bag. Just put it in ~~~~~
The green battery prompt is divided into 3 bars, and there is an LED light, which is good. The scale shown above is a random setting of torque from 1 to 20N, and the preset torque automatically slips.
Brushless motor, more power saving and longer life than traditional brushed motor. The highest hard torque is 28N. Enough for any daily use
Made in Malaysia
Small size, very convenient.
Compared with my colleague’s GSR 10.8-2-Li, the brushless motor is 40% longer in life and saves power.
Stanley FATMAX toolkit
The starting price is 130
16 inches, 30 pounds of weight no problem, the bottom plate is engineering plastic
Each brand has its own strengths. Wiha is the best value for money and is suitable for home and simple repairs. WERA is for DIY enthusiasts who need to work or use frequently. PB SWISS IS INTENDED FOR THOSE WITH HIGH TOOL REQUIREMENTS.
For household tools, there are still many Taiwanese tools suitable for the public, and Skadden and Baogong are also good brands. The quality is also passable, and Skadden also has a lifetime warranty. For the tools I recommend more suitable for themselves, not that the more expensive the better, the place of use, the natural selection is different. I just recommend the use of myself to everyone. ~
Debut novel, everyone gives more opinions. ~If the response is good, we will compare and evaluate more one by one in the future!!
