Yes, I am a Milwaukee fanboi, but once in a while, I'm into other brands. Wera, being another favourite.

I've got my sights on this........

https://chadstoolbox.com/6004-joker-...eid=5009c02d78

I've purchased Wera products from these folks before. With borders shut down, having the stuff shipped to Blaine for pickup is no longer an option. Shipping stuff here is just not worth it. In any case, KMS carries Wera products, so when I'm there today, gonna see if they have it, or at least bring it in. KMS didn't carry that much Wera stuff back in the day, but have really started expanding their stock in recent years. So glad they did.



the video above shows how the self adjusting 6004 Joker Wrenches work. Starts at around 1:28

Well, I went to KMS and bought me a metric 11 piece Wera Joker set. MSRP is like $349.99. No way I'm going to pay that kind of money for it. I asked the counter person if they ever go on sale. While he was looking up the item on his computer, I quickly did a google search and found out that IHL back east has the set on sale for $239.00. Turns out the set is also on sale at KMS Tools for the same price. Somebody didn't put up the sale price on the hanger. Anyway, check out the review. Worth every penny, IMHO. Especially at the sale price.

Couldn't find a good review of the Wera Koloss. Starts at 7:00. It is one hefty ratchet with a fricken hammer built in. And yes, I have the Koloss. Don't think I'll ever need the centering pin attachment.

Not really a tool, but different types of drill bits for different uses.


My favourite bit is the countersink bit. I purchased a Viking/Norseman (Made in USA) countersink bit and it is amazing. I've used all kinds of countersinks, but the Viking is, by far, the best I've used.

On Page 102. TYPE 82-UB 82o PILOT LESS COUNTERSINK

It's real pretty looking too. Blackgold, ftmfw. Not 100% sure of its effectiveness, but sure looks pretty. Looks is everything, right?

This guy does great reviews and comparisons of tools.

Cannot make fun of Harbor Freight stuff.

I want to know where I can buy the Evolution blade............

And the Big Blue = Why?
