Default Best Tools: Hex and Nut Drivers, Screwdrivers ... etc.

Which company make the best tools besides HUDY? I'm thinking to get a set of Team Associated hex driver set because they're inexpensive comparing the ones from HUDY.

I am a fan of the dynamite stuff, the tips seem to be a real good fit and last a long time.

I have the Team Associated hex and nut drivers. I think they are great and they have held up quite well. I had a set on Integy tools, they were ok but the Associated stuff has a better grip.

So the tips on Team Associated hex drivers are tough enough? I'm afraid the .050 and 1/16... which usually easy to break.

MIP/THORP. had mine for 10 years now so they definitely paid for them selves. I just recently switched to Schumacher's line of tools and was quite happy with them as well. But like Peter, I am biased.

I have had mine for 2-3 years and have not yet broken a tip. They have held up good.
The Hudy tools are great too, if you don't spending the money.

i worked at a shop for 3 years i am a big fan of dynamite you can find the tips on ebay ..

3 peice standard or metric retail is 19.99

i still have my set from 5 years ago .. the handles are beat to death but the tips are mint still

i broke one tip on the 2mm user error i was ticked off coudlnt find a punch ... and used the 2mm

you can drill the handle and use a hudy tip the shaft on hudy tips are a little fatter ..

dynamite tip has very lil play . and the hudy at times is a pita real tight fit

integy like there skid plates .. last one run

for ball end's i have ofna long's every ball end tip will snap if used wrong ..

i try to break the screws loose with another hex before i use ball ends .

losi makes some real nice one's too

rd logics are decent for a long set

power racing is a real nice set too

mip if you can deal with those handles digging into your palm

Losi tools are great. They do take up a little more room in your tool box.

RD Logics makes some of the best fitting hex wrenches I have ever used. They are not very expensive either..........
