Wera has always had great options in the field of tool storage. They have the “James Bond” driver where the bits are stored in the handle, the new 2go series of cases and storage solutions, not to mention that a ton of the tool sets they make come with high quality boxes, stands or racks. Now they are adding yet another option to their arsenal of storage choices: belts.
Good things come to those who wait! It has been months since they were in stock, but we are happy to announce that the KC Tool bench top stands for precision tools are again available for purchase. For those of you who don’t know, a few years back KC Tool set out to make a precision screwdriver stand that was simple and affordable, without sacrificing quality. We did just that, making it the ideal stand for a wide range of screwdriver brands including Wiha, Gedore, Witte and more.

Wiha tools came out with their Ultra Driver over a year ago and it has been very popular in the trades ever since. It was so innovative at the time, that it won the prestigious Red Dot award for design. The pop-up bit holder in the handle holds reversible bits specifically designed for the Ultra Driver. This makes for 26 different tip styles, creating a very handy all-in-one tool.
Though the exciting news is that the original Ultra Driver is only $19.99 until the end of 2017, another variation of the tool has the potential to create a buzz as well. Because of the way the bit holder in the original is designed, it would be almost impossible to create an insulated version of it (for now, anyway), but Wiha has done the next best thing. They have created an insulated insert bit holder with the carousel, pop-up handle of the Ultra Driver.Read More »
This past weekend a group of us at KC Tool were treated to a weekend on the town in Charleston, South Carolina. Gedore Tools is based in the “The Holy City” and they wanted to show us a good time by flying us out to see Gedore Headquarters, among other hot spots on the Charleston scene. We were enamored by Charleston’s beauty, history and charm. We were also in awe of some VERY big wrenches! Many thanks to Gedore for a fun weekend! Check out the photos below to see how the weekend looked.
As social media continues to grow and grow, so has the world of hashtags. If you have been living in a barn for the past 3 or 4 years, a hashtag is a word or phrase preceded by a pound symbol. The hashtag is (and always should be) relatable to the content of the post, so, for instance, if a movie theater posts about a new movie playing they may add #nowplaying or #newmovie to their post. At KC Tool we love our #kctool and #kctoolcrew hashtags as well as our brand’s tags like #wiha and #weratools.Read More »
It’s back! Wera Advent Calendars are now available from KC Tool. We started selling the calendars last year and we sold out quicker than we ever thought we would. So, this year we are almost doubling our stock.
I didn’t know what to think about the concept when they first told me about them last year. I mean, really? An Advent Calendar full of tools? Seems odd, but let me tell you, these are not to be brushed aside. The number of tools you get in this package for the money is crazy. The set I got out of the 2016 Calendar are still my go-to tools, and they are limited edition!
So, what do you get this year? Plenty. First, you get a bit holding screwdriver with 12 different bits. Then you get a microbit version with 8 different bits. You want more? How about 8 metric sockets with the “Take It Easy” tool finder color coding, plus two adapters for you to use the sockets with the bit holder. AND on top of all that, you get a textile case to carry all the tools and a hook-and-loop fastener to attach it to other elements of the Wera 2go system.
We are one of a select few in the states to sell these and no one has as many as we do. That said, when they are gone, they are gone. We won’t be able to reorder them so get yours quick before they sell out!
Don’t mind the dust! It’s official. We have so many quality German tools that we have outgrown our facility and are moving into a new space. We are not moving far, but we are getting far bigger with room to grow. Your favorite tool company is only going to get better. Our new building is custom tailored to our needs, so rest assured great things are to come, with the same high-quality customer service you have grown accustomed to.
What does this mean for you? First and foremost, you should know that we are making every effort to move efficiently, so that our operations will not be halted or interrupted. The website will not be down during the move, so you can still order tools at anytime. Our phones may be off for a bit and we may be a touch slower than usual in replying to emails, but we should be up and running at normal speed very soon after the move.
What you can look forward to is new tools, new brands coming on and bigger and better content across all the social media platforms.
Now down to business. Our new address is:
1280 N. Winchester Street
Olathe, KS 66061
This is the location that all your packages will be sent from with the same love and care you expect from us. So update your address books and get ready for big things to come!
