Wera Wednesday – Wera Wooden Handled Screw Drivers
You’ve got your ironic beard, flannel shirt and skinny jeans held up by suspenders. You’ve got your locally roasted fair trade coffee or maybe a PBR in one hand and a hand rolled cigarette in the other. You’ve got Neutral Milk Hotel or Mumford and Sons on in the background, vinyl of course. You’ve got everything you need as a hipster, your tiny house is perfect and all is well with the world. Until you realize you don’t have any tools to help you make that handmade bird house or bookshelf made of sustainably harvested wood. What is the hipster handyman to do? Where can you get some vintage looking hand tools without paying antique collectible prices?
Buy some Wera wood handled tools!
These beautiful wood handled tools look like old fashioned tools, but haven’t rusted or been beat up, so they lack that aesthetic, but it’s also the perfect opportunity for you to put your signature wear upon them. Made of hard beech wood, they’ll take some abuse without much wear showing, but maybe with some hard work, steel wool or maybe some sandpaper, some coffee grounds and vinegar, you can maybe artificially weather the handles of your tools and impress all of your friends with the aged and weathered vintage tools set. Regardless of how it looks, the tool is strong and features additional reinforcement to withstand hammer blows and extreme loads.
Get the Wera 05018251001 6 piece set, you’ll get a Phillips #1 and #2 as well as four different common slotted sizes. The Wera 05137810001 Pozidriv and slotted 6 piece set features the same slotted sizes, but also a PZ 1 x 90mm and PZ 2 x 100mm. If you want it all, you can mix and match by ordering the drivers individually as well. The PZ 2 and the PZ 1 are available to add to your Phillips set or Phillips sizes #1, #2, #3, and #4 are available individually if you prefer to add those to the Pozidriv set.
They’re all great tools, and the wood will add a rustic look to any workbench or handyman corner, especially if you take the trouble to age them.
