2019 Anarchist’s Gift Guide, Day 9: Wera Tool-Check PLUS


I always include one tool in our gift guide that is a bit on the pricey side. This year it’s the Wera Tool-Check PLUS set, which is an incredibly well-made and handy set of sockets and drivers that will get you out of many jams.

The tooling is high-quality stuff. But what is really remarkable about the set is the way it is packaged. All the sockets and drivers are in a clever plastic holder. All of the tools fit in a tiny space that can go in the bottom of your tool chest or in a drawer. So when a problem comes up with a machine or a tool, you’ll be ready.

Yes, I have a complete (huge) set of sockets and drivers and 100 other bits of drivery in our machine room. And when we need to take the table saw or planer apart, that’s where I go. But when I need to tighten a bench bolt or encounter a weird Torx screw, I grab the Wera set and get it done and get back to work.

    Can confirm!
    I use it all the time on industrial machinery and the bits have yet to get dickered.

    And let me tell you the bit holder included is THE BEST ONE ON THIS PLANET and I have tried them all…


  3. Joe says:

    Thanks Chris. The fact it is compact and has a lot of different style bits appeals to me.

    Wera has become my go-to manufacturer for bits and screwdrivers ever since I got this kit a few years ago. Both the ratchet handle and the the bit holder handle are almost uncomfortably small, yet somehow I always seems to reach this set when assembling or disassembling stuff. A good investment.
