    Wiha Torx Screwdrivers

    Ok so Mad Rook's nano oil thread reminded me that I need to get some Wiha Screwdrivers. As I like to overthink these things, I cant decide if I want to get the Precision screwdriver with the torx bits or get the set of the individual torx screwdrivers. They are priced about the same (around $30) but still exploring my options.

    For those of you with the Wiha screwdrivers, which one do you have? Any of you have experience with both? Im sure both will be fine but I need help making up my mind.

    Pictures are always great

    I have the same set as bh49. It's fine, if used properly. However, there's the temptation to use the driver on the short leg of the handle, especially if a screw is reluctant to turn and, especially with the smaller sizes like T-6, doing so makes it much easier to damage a screw. The other issue is that it lacks a T-5 driver and some of the new, smaller, Spydercos have T-5 fasteners.

    I have a t6 and t8. I don't need the whole set. They work well and don't strip screws.

    I like that 11-piece kit. It has the T5 that a lot of the other ones lack. I've been seriously considering a Wiha set, but just haven't clicked on the "Buy' button yet.

    This is the other set I have been considering too. Not Wiha but Wera. From my understating, Wera is just as good as Wiha but I haven't owned either so I don't know. Its has the T5 too.

    I like a screwdriver configuration as it helps prevent over torquing. I purchased the Wiha 26799 8-Piece Torx Screwdriver Set.
    The eight piece set includes T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, T9, T10 drivers and a canvas tool roll.
