Color Coded L-Keys from Wiha & Wera

Proudly distributed by KC Tool

Some of our hottest selling products are the color coded L-keys manufactured by both Wiha and Wera in Germany and the Czech Republic respectively. These L-keys are a combination of strength, craftsmanship, and color. The strength and craftsmanship of Wiha and Wera products aren’t new. However, the color coding of L-keys is relatively new, and they are becoming more and more popular. The color coding allows for instantaneous recognition of L-key size as well as being easy to locate in a crowded tool box or bag. Banish your old L-keys and try these color coded L-keys from Wiha and Wera today!

Red Bull Racing Tool Sets Made by Wera

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.

Christmas Gift Tool Ideas

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…
