Waaaaaay too much for what this is, I’ve made my living with tools and understand paying top dollar for quality as my livelihood depended on it, this is for y’all with lots of disposable $$$$ for neat but little used swag
Handle is not designed for torque, think the Bit Bar titanium is looking better in this case.
Just received my copper one. Look beautiful with my CNC bit set base. Photo:

Love it but for the $ going here https://www.amazon.com/Wiha-75965-Precision-Ratchet-65-Piece/dp/B00JQ753W8 🤷🏼‍♂️

I have the exact Wiha 65 pieces set you mention there. It has a 1/4 attachment to fit all the other Wiha bits. Look:

I would get both. Works great... Love it.

Trust me I want both😎
Ordered 1 copper bit driver only $39. Cheaper than SLCo. website ($65). You guys should use lowest price ($39) for just the bit driver and add more options on the set.

$90 for a mini screwdriver set? Wth
So, I'm guessing the last drop(about a month ago) didn't get enough orders to happen. I ordered a set and haven't heard anything since. This would be the first time that happened to me, if that's what happened.

I just got an email saying the drop was delayed. Thanks again.
Ya know, I've been thinking to myself, what I'm really missing in my life is another tiny screwdriver set that is priced at 5-10x what other tiny screwdriver sets cost. This looks like just the ticket!
PowerWaffles
I agree (lol) I thought the dam thing was made of gold or something. Do any of you guys want to buy the Brooklyn Bridge?
Jeez, for that price does it make me a coffee while I use it? I'll stick with my sidchrome set
djpr
I guess not, but I got a set at the dollar store that works just fine and had $89.00 left to buy coffee (lol)
this looks like a one hitter.

With a full line up in the dug out!
I bought and really like this, but now i see the price drop and i am not happy.
This is $55 on Scout Leather Co's website
Edcmelb
That’s just for the leather roll.
HowardC
Oh yeah, it's not very clear. Thanks for the correction.
Is there any way to opt out the plasticky thing at the end? Does not seem that ergonomic. Someting rounded in metal would be great. Somtimes i would want to apply some pressure without indenting my palm
Fundin
It's a caged roller bearing, most likely stainless steel, though could be coated tool steel
ZIGSAW
Still not very ergonomic. Wish I had had the money for this one when it was for sale. But it has an even more ridiculous price point....https://fellhoelter.com/product/screwit/
Wiha (and Wera) bits are the best, but I've bought them in two packs and sets for about $2 a bit. The best deal you can get for Wiha Torx, especially for knives is this set (got mine for $13). Bonus fact, you can use the case itself as the bit driver in a pinch. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001US4RMI

Also, are you really going to drive a T20 or Phillips #3 with a little precision bit holder?
Time and time gain, this website makes me feel penniless and cheap. This is just another example with this absurd pricing.

A lot of the EDC drops are over priced "artisan" products that serve no real purpose. Great bits, but everything else in this is over priced and impractical. You can get this amazing Wiha kit on Amazon for the same price, and you're not paying for overpriced leather or an impractical driver. https://www.amazon.com/Wiha-75971-Master-Micro-Travel/dp/B01AVIQPZE/ Or spend half as much and still get a more useful kit. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071D4CKXN/

Bought this from KC Tool for around 30.00 but the driver sucks. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071D4CKXN/
it is too bad this is only sold with a leather roll up. I'd buy the heck out of this in a canvas or rubber roll.
Calaverasgrande
You can opt out of the leather roll, which saves like $35
ZIGSAW
You can also get Wiha bits at a lot of other places.
Does anyone know if there is wobble when using longer 1/4" hex shank bits? Ya know, the ones with slots made for quick release impact drivers? Thanks!

Not trying to stir any pots but for those of you who are unfamiliar with Wiha, they are an extremely high quality tool maker. You would all be deeply impressed by the way Wiha holds up in the field. I don't use anything but Wiha on my knives because I like to keep the hardware looking new so tight tolerances and high quality by Wiha ensures my satisfaction
Cahadin
Wiha's are terrific. Along those same lines, Wera is another fantastic tool maker to look into. Both are of similar quality. I work in commercial HVAC: a single Wiha or Wera 2.5mm flat head micro screwdriver lasts for years of nearly daily constant use of tightening set screws on terminal blocks, poking through drywall, and even prying off panels with little to no deformation of the head. I abuse their tools, but they keep on working year after year. I usually lose them before they wear out.
If you want a bunch of bits, there are cheaper options. If you want a nice set of tools that would last a lifetime of moderate use, these will do the trick.
Massdrop, could you revive the Wiha bit set drop you ran shortly after the last time we had this drop? I missed it and have been kicking myself for it.. it obviously pairs well with this drop and we prob would get more joiners if the 2 ran together (one would think anyway)

I agree, functionality along with aesthetics's is important to me. My problem is I don't have much disposable income but my eyes doesn't understand that ;) These are a gorgeous looking set of bits and since I just received mine today, I am looking forward to all the wonderful comments from my friends when I whip this tool set out.
Except for the part where those iFixit bits strip like unhardened steel. For a flathead or Philips, sure, but their Torx last 2 uses then strip your screws. Worthless.
Novelty item basically anyone who uses this will eventually trade it in for a drill

This set is NOT for working on your car. It’s for delicate electronics, disassembling and servicing knives, hobby repair, etc… I use this for my N Scale locomotives and my knife collection. If you’re not doing delicate work like this then you don’t need this set.
why is it so expensive?
cnwy95
the bits are made by wiha, they are expensive but one of the best (if not the best) on the market.
wait.. 9 bits, a driver and a hipster looking "case" for 99.99$ i mean.. it looks "cool" 'n' all but you can get much, much, much more for a much lower price.. stuff like this just proves that way too many people go for looks over use in the wrong places nowadays

While the material of which a screw is made and the tolerances to which its slot is manufactured play a part in whether or not the screw will round off, the most important factor is how securely the bit sits in the slot. Part of that is slot tolerances, but having a properly-crafted tool head that is strong enough to handle the torque and having a tool that helps your hand hold the tool in the proper orientation throughout its operation makes the biggest difference in whether you are ruining screw heads.
I have a bit of an obsession with mechanical watches, to the point where I purchased a >$150 set of "jeweller's" screwdrivers to tinker with them. The difference they have made in whether I am scratching the finish of every mirror-polished screw head or leaving every single screw in perfect, pristine condition is utterly unbelievable until you see it first-hand. The Swiss-made tool tips make a much better purchase on the screw slots and the ball bearing tops of the screwdrivers allow me to fully screw/unscrew the screw (so much screw in this sentence!) in one action without accidentally changing the angle of the driver.
If this tool functions anything like those Swiss screwdrivers do, then you probably won't be able to believe how amazing it is until you use it. I haven't used it myself, so I don't know if it is that well-made, but I do at least appreciate how much of a difference a well-made tool can make, and this one has been on my wishlist for a long time. I just never seem to have the money on hand when it drops. :(
TipsyMacScotchslurpen
I agree, again going with what I said prior about buying tools that excel at their jobs. Titanium is not the answer in this instance. This might have a bearing on top, not sure, which yeah would be super nice. But again, going with my personal opinion of "knives are tools to actually be used" I don't particularly care if I scratch the finish. Hell, one day I got bored with a spare piece of 2x4 and my $40 Gerber and hammered it through. Didn't even scratch the anodized finish, so that doesn't even hold exclusively true for Titanium. In your case, I appreciate nice watches as dress/show pieces, which is why I have my (budget ~$100) Seiko chronograph for "nice" events/dress and a $12 digital from Wal-Mart that I beat to hell and just buy a new one when it inevitably breaks and/or runs out of batteries. I'm just of the opinion that tools are tools, meant to be used, and sometimes a cheap tool works just as well.
anyone who would actually need a tool like this would never even consider purchasing a piece of shit like this at a fucking insane price point
I bought something like this on Aliexpress for $5. I am sure this is much nicer but $100?
Is this magnetized?

Oh I know, just been looking for something decent for an everycay carry, still probably going to look at a pen on Gallantry
i think alot of the price is in the leather tool roll, which is a "custom" tool roll, thats what your paying for. Your 100% correct tho on being able to magnitize, its not realy anything that sets it apart from anything else, but i was just answering his question. Its a good driver, its GREAT bits, and a cool (in my opinion) tool roll
I'm old. I've been using Wiha tools since they came to the US in 1985. They are superb. I have all these bits and many, many more. I've used narrow handle "Precision" technician drivers for 30+ years. If you use a driver like the one included with this kit to loosen and tighten PH1-3, T9 and larger, etc. bits you will end up like me. The cartilage in my thumb is blown through. It is no fun to have arthritis to the degree of someone 25 years older than I am. Just use the driver for spinning.
Hipster tool much?
Sorry, I couldn't resist. Mostly because of that case.
This is pretty cool.
This could be an incredible set for people with a Brooks bike saddle if it had...
- straps to suit the saddle - a breaker bar or at least a hole to use one to overcome higher torque bolts - hex drivers
Oh well.
aeberbach
I wonder if the kit would fit in the Brooks bag attached to my Brooks saddle.
You can hate me if you wish.
