We know, we know. If you follow our website and social media, you have probably figured out that we have actually carried Stahlwille for a while now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate! KC Tool is very proud to announce that we carry a HUGE selection of Stahlwille tools, both in stock and available to order from Germany.
Stahlwille is one of the most highly regarded German tool brands. Founded in 1862, the company takes the quality of their products very seriously. Many of their tools are still forged and assembled in Wuppertal, Germany. In recent years, Stahlwille has taken great pride in their line of torque tools and have been innovators in the field. Stahlwille is considered by many German tool aficionados to be the best-of-the-best, and you know where the best place to buy German tools is, right? KC Tool of course!
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.
At KC Tool, we are proud of all the great reviews we get. That said, our products very rarely get a bad review. When we browse our own website and see that nearly all our tools have five-star reviews, we feel self-conscious that it appears fake. How could we have all stellar reviews? I don’t recall any other websites where all their products have four and five star reviews. With all the five-star reviews on our website, one might get suspicious and think that we are doctoring the numbers, so-to-speak. We aren’t, we promise.Read More »
It’s a horrible feeling. You have been working in the shop for hours, laboring over your work and all-of-a-sudden everything comes to a halt. Why? A fastener broke and you can’t get it out. You can try and dig it out somehow, but most of the time the best option is to use some form of extractor, or as many call it, an “easy out.”Read More »
There are various sets of standards in the tool world. In America we have The American National Standards Institute or ANSI for short. On a global level, there is the International Organization for Standardization, or ISO. Since this is a blog about specifically German made tools we will look at the German version: DIN.
DIN stands for Deutsches Institut Für Normung or German Institute for Standardization in English. They have been operating for literally 100 years and have always been highly regarded in the standards community. Though the name implies an exclusively German operation, the DIN standards have been adopted across the world and influenced many other standards organizations including the ISO. The best example of this is the DIN standard 476 from 1922 introducing the A sizes of paper which would later become ISO 216 in 1975.Read More »
