It is amazing what electronic devices people are repairing now that they used to just throw away and replace. Everything from mobile phones, to roku boxes, to playstations, to PCs. Electronics used to be disposable… now they are repairable. The rise of YouTube has been a boon to the education of the masses (your’s truly included). The collective knowledge of people plus the internet is a powerful tool. Want to see how to fix a broken iPhone screen, or change the lifters in your 2005 Dodge Caravan, or do a hard drive replacement on your mom’s 2012 iMac? Chances are someone has posted on Youtube a step by step video guide to walk you through almost any repair.

Start of each new quarter usually brings new manufacturers promotions, but I’m thrilled to announce that Felo and Wiha are unchanged from quarter 4, 2016. Sometimes when you have a winning selection you just stick with it, ya know? Wera has announced a new promotional grouping including the always popular “James Bond” driver and the “Tool-Check Plus” system.
Exciting news out of Wera this week. They were proud to announce that they have partnered with Red Bull Racing. They are one of the top teams in Formula One racing led by Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen. Red Bull Racing and Wera both have a record of branching out of their respective industries norms (i.e. Wera’s Advent Calendar, Wera Tool Rebels slogan, Red Bull’s Flugtag, New York Red Bulls MLS soccer team etc…) which makes this pairing so very cool.
From all of us at KC Tool, we wanted to thank you for another wonderful year. 2016 was yet another record breaking year for us. We realize that all of our success comes from an amazing and loyal customer base. Whether you are a gigantic shipyard, or a silicon valley based tech outfit, a regular poster on a tool forum professional, or a part-time diy’er, you all mean a great deal to us. Thanks for your business in 2016!
We are pleased to announce a new member to our family, Ballistol. It really seemed natural to partner our already great brands (Wiha, Wera, Knipex, Gedore, Felo etc…) with a great product to complement our great tools. We at KC Tool and our customers are passionate about tools. We want to empower our customers to be able to take good care of their own tools. That is where Ballistol (meaning ballistic oil) comes in. Many of our customers ask for tips to care for their tools. The best way to keep them in top working order is to clean after every use and lightly oil them to reduce the risk of rust. You can even feel free to use this on wood handles. It works great!
A lot of people ask me what is the “best bit set” we carry. “Best” can mean many things to different people. However, the “best” assortment of popular bits with mass appeal to a multitude of people and professions at a fantastic price is the Wiha 79495 31 Piece Combo XLSelector Bit Set (Slotted/Phillips/Hex Inch/Hex Metric/Torx). This is a great bang for the buck. It has the right mix of security, traditional, and hex bits. The quick release adaptor and slick carrying case are nice little bonuses.
As an early Christmas gift, Gedore has confirmed that we can take an extra 10% off already low prices now through the month of December. Below we just wanted to spotlight just a couple of products that make a great gift at a great price to yourself or a loved one. But don’t forget it is 10% off ALL Gedore products (including Ochsenkopf) for the month of December. Buy Gedore today!

Seems like Christmas (or preparation for Christmas) gets earlier and earlier each year. My wife and I went to pick out Christmas trees at Lowe’s last night. I am very much a Scrooge, but she adores the Christmas season. She was asking me before Halloween if we could hang Christmas lights. At the time I resisted, saying; “We have to wait for after Thanksgiving”. My reasoning to her is that each season needs its proper time and respect. That was a lie, I was just trying to delay the inevitable. She wore me down over the last two weeks. Finally, after the Chiefs late win over the Panthers, I was feeling especially buoyant (and vulnerable). I gave in. We bought a tree. We did compromise on the size of tree though (moral victory). She was looking for a gigantic 12’ artificial tree. I was hoping for a small fern. Instead, we got a 3’ tall Norfolk Island Pine which is probably around 6 months old. I have read they can grow to over 200 ft tall…which could be a huge problem. I will have to keep it pruned up to keep it inside. The name implies it is a pine tree but it isn’t, it is a weird Araucariaceae from the sub-tropical island of Norfolk which is way the hell out near Australia. I was disappointed to find that it is going to have to stay in the house in a large pot because it doesn’t like cold weather. Oh well…would have looked perfect in the backyard. Minor drawback. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep it alive for several Christmas seasons. It should be almost perfect: it isn’t going to be too big, isn’t going to shed needles, and I can care for it after the season. I have a green thumb in addition to being a German Hand Tool aficionado. Cross your fingers that I made a good move…
