Default Hex Wrenches

I have used alot of the ones mentioned here and the associated factory team wrenches are really good and with the colors you allways grab the one you need.

How about a compromise? If you need 1.5, 2, 2.5 and 3mm. Then you can just get any old cheap 2.5 and 3mm ones as they're big and tough and don't wear out so quicly and get the Hudy proFit in 1.5 and 2mm?

When i got my first set 3 years ago I got cheapies. The 1.5 and 2mm wore out in no time but the larger sizes are still great. I replaced the smaller ones with Hudy and they've been going for about 4 years and the tips still look perfect!

Can anyone point me in the direction of where to buy replacement tips for the Hudy tools? Which online store has them? I just broke the 1.5mm tip.

Thanks

I've had the Thorp (now MIP) for 20+ years and are still in shape, the tips fall out everynow and then but a little drop of superglue keeps them in place. Just wish they make nut drivers. Also have the Losi ones and they work just as good.

I purchased a replacement tip from Team EDS for my Hudy, fits and locks in perfectly. Price was US$3.50, compared to the Hudy price of US$7.50 from Nexus racing, who wanted US$36 for shipping to Australia!

The Losi ones are very well made.

I haven't had any probs with dynamite hexes. Stay away from integy though. The larger sizes seem ok, but smaller diameter ones I have had strip.

Take a look here: http://www.3racing.com.hk/x_products...%20Screwdriver
Same quality as Hudy and replacement parts available. They are sold by many (Hongkong) hobbyshops for an avarage of 8USD comparing 14-15USD for a Hudy tool. I have Hudy and 3Racing tools and see no difference in quality.
