    Hey guys I’m looking to get some precision screwdrivers. I’ll need a few different sizes of Phillips and some different metric hex head sizes. If anyone can recommend a good brand and post some pictures that would be awesome thanks.

    They just had a whole bunch of WERA’s they were clearing out on Cyber Monday at Lee Valley. I just pulled these links from my brousing history. Some are sold out though.

    As mentioned @kswiss, Wera has some nice sets but spendy.

    Another brand would be Wiha http://www.wihatools.ca/480-precision-tools

    I prefer the Wiha over the Wera in precision screw drivers. They fit my hand a little better. I would say ether will be a good choice for you.

    Wiha and Wera are some good brands. I still have a bunch of Wera screwdrivers back in germany. I should get them over here one day.
    Might be personal preference between those two brands.

    I did end up picking up one Wera Phillips screwdriver today. Not a bad deal for $5, I’ll post some pictures when I get home. Unfortunately they didn’t have any of the wiha available. I’m still on the lookout for some metric hex drivers

    May I ask, why do you need ‘precision’ drivers? What’s the application Kyle @kswiss?

    I was all tempted to get some of the LV clearance stiff on the Wera, but I just felt that even at a 30% discount it wasn’t for me.

    I think they only have small Philips and slotted but I have been really happy with the Milwaukee ones I have.

    I vote for Wiha also. Nice stuff from precision screwdrivers to their regular screwdrivers.

    I’m using some smaller screws for building my newer 3D printer and I find that they strip easily

    If they are easily stripping, then you really need a quality set/brand.
    Check on Atlas Machinery’s website for Wiha brand. They are a Canadian Distributor.

    I found out wiha ships direct via their Canadian website. I’m thinking about ordering a few things, if anyone else is interested maybe we can do a group order type thing?

    Check out https://www.wihatools.ca/order and let me know what you would want to order. I guess we would get everything shipped to the most central person?

    Wiha and Wera are not the same company? I thought it was just different spelling for the same name. 😮

    @jzmtl,
    Nice to see ya pop in once and a while.

    Yes, they are two different companies that make great tools. Both with roots in Germany.
