AutomationDirect has expanded its line of Wera hand tools to include ratchets and sockets, as well as combination wrenches, nut drivers, chisel drivers and additional screwdrivers. Seven-piece nutdriver sets ($33) made of chrome plated steel feature hollow shanks to allow access to nuts on long screws and are available in inch and metric sizes. When regular screwdrivers are not quite enough, new chisel screwdrivers are ideal for the job. Suitable for fastening, chiseling, and loosening seized screws, chisel screwdrivers feature a hexagonal blade which goes through the ergonomic handle to an impact cap fitted with a ¼-inch square socket to allow adding a ratchet for extra torque.
Available individually or in six-piece sets, prices start at $9. Reduced diameter tip insulated screwdrivers feature a smaller diameter blade at the tip to allow access to recessed screws such as those used in terminal blocks. Guaranteed safe operation up to 1,000 volts, insulated screwdrivers are available in six-piece sets or individually starting at $7.50. Additional standard screwdrivers include extra-long screwdrivers with 11.81-inch blades, ideal for those hard-to-reach screws. Designed with a laser tip for better grip, the extra long screwdrivers start at $6.50 each; a tamper-proof TX20 TORX screwdriver, ideal for safety switches, is available for $6.50.
