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.
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!

I have three trees, two cottonwoods and an elm, in my backyard (not the featured image…haha) that have to be 40+ years old. They are massive. The developer of my neighborhood could have done me a solid and removed them years ago when they built the house…but they didn’t. It is getting to the point I’m going to have to do something about it. The cottonwoods drop so much trash (dead limbs and cotton-y junk in the yard) and the elm grows out toward my house rather than straight up. It is time for them to go.
We wrote the blog below almost a year ago. We wanted to give you a brief update.
These are some of our favorite handles. We get calls for them weekly. We have a spot of good news. They are coming back…sort of…they are still discontinued and we can’t get individual screwdrivers but we are going to be able to get a few dozen sets. The Wiha 51099 11 Piece Dynamic Grip Slotted/Phillips Screwdriver Set is going to be in stock today. We won’t have them for long nor will we ever be able to replenish. Get yours before we run out.
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.
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.
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…
