    Hi Devils,

    Very fed up with the cheap quality precision screwdriver kits I've found at Home Depot. Additionally almost all things on Amazon are torn to shreds in the reviews by knife collectors as well. The bits are cheap and don't hold up let alone supply you with a good amount of variety sizes for different torx screws.

    What are you using and would recommend?

    Thanks all.

    I think most people have good results with Wiha torx stuff. They're available from a lot of places, including amazon, etc.

    Hey crogers!

    I thought that as well, but when I read reviews people are complaining about the material and steel. Apparently Wiha no longer manufactures in Germany and the products have declined. Not sure...

    I'll go Wiha Torx as well. Just the best. And if you're worried about Quality Control, buy the older stuff.
    Tough...

    Wiha has production facilities in Germany, Switzerland, Poland, and Vietnam. Most all their products have an excellent warranty.

    As with most anything worth having, I'm sure the Chinese have knocked them off somewhere along the way....

    Ok will go the Wiha route. Also found Journey Tool Co who sells probably the older Wiha bits and sells some really amazing custom drivers. Always fascinated with the custom things people do.

    Thanks for input all.

    Go to the Wiha website and find what it is that you want. When you click on the item, it'll show you the country of origin.

    you don't even really have to pull them out of the holder to use them.

    I like 'em so much I bought one for the office and one for the house. I still want a third one for the car.
