Best New Tools
Consider us biased, but we launched some great tools this year.
Y-Type Y000 Precision Screwdrivers are excellent for working with delicate electronics and accessing Apple products innards.
A step up from our current composite handles. The new dual drive T-Handle bit holders will fit in your hand better when using repeatedly.
12 Piece Ratcheting Wrench Sets in Inch & Metric
Although these aren’t a new tool in the industry, we are exceptionally proud of the case that the wrenches come in. It’s able to be mounted on the wall with 2 nail/screw slots. The slim design also makes it possible to lie flat in a tool drawer, all the while keeping your wrenches secure and organized with the bail system.
Lastly, and most recently, the speedE.
