Fred, great work on the links.
As an aside, I saw a great video on YouTube about the hex-plus drivers from Wera. This is a feature patent by Wera wnd as far as I know they offer it exclusively. The YouTube channel is called German Tool Reviews. He does a good demonstration of regular drivers compared to hex-plus on equally torqued fasteners. It was very evident the new style works very well. Maybe worthwhile for buyers looking for new hex drivers.
My absolutely favorite hex / socket set is a Silca T-ratchet (I got the optional torque arm):
Added a 1/4" socket adapter to it, and some other odds and ends in an Altoids case, and it’s in my grab tool bag.
Look nice for a bike road kit. How are the bits - regarding fit - compared to ones like PB Swiss or the Czech Wera’s? One Amazon reviewer grumbles a bit (note the pun) about this.
The bits are ground, and mine are reasonably sized — usually I use the PB Swiss bits from my Victorinox bike tool (one of these days, I’m going to have the money to just switch over completely) — I really wish that they’d just gone w/ PB Swiss bits instead of having them machined.
