AutomationDirect has expanded its line of Wera hand tools to include ratchets and sockets, as well as combination wrenches, nut drivers, chisel drivers and additional screwdrivers. Seven-piece nutdriver sets made of chrome plated steel feature hollow shanks to allow access to nuts on long screws and are available in inch and metric sizes.
When regular screwdrivers are not quite enough, new chisel screwdrivers are ideal for the job. Suitable for fastening, chiseling, and loosening seized screws, chisel screwdrivers feature a hexagonal blade which goes through the ergonomic handle to an impact cap fitted with a ¼-inch square socket to allow adding a ratchet for extra torque. Available individually or in six-piece sets.
Reduced diameter tip insulated screwdrivers feature a smaller diameter blade at the tip to allow access to recessed screws such as those used in terminal blocks. Guaranteed safe operation up to 1,000 volts, insulated screwdrivers are available in six-piece sets or individually.
Additional standard screwdrivers include extra-long screwdrivers with 11.81-inch blades, ideal for those hard-to-reach screws. Designed with a laser tip for better grip, the extra long screwdrivers; a tamper-proof TX20 TORX screwdriver, ideal for safety switches.
A selection of ratchet tools has also been added to the Wera line of hand tools. Combination ratchet wrenches feature a 12-point open end and a unique six-point stop plate that enables easier turning of bolts and also provides improved grip for loosening stubborn screws. The fine tooth ratchet mechanism is exceptional for working in tight spaces. Combination ratchet wrenches are available in four metric sizes and are sold individually or in a four-piece set.
Drive ratchet tools are available in three sizes (1/4-inch, 3/8-inch, and ½-inch) and feature a swivel head that locks in five positions. Ratchets include an easy-to-grip free-turning sleeve for faster work when using the ratchet as a screwdriver. Also available is an extra heavy duty half-inch drive ratchet and hammer combination with a removable extension arm, rubber hammer face pad and durable cloth holster.
A wide selection of bit driver and sockets, in inch or metric sizes, is also available. Made of high quality chrome vanadium steel, sockets are available in six-piece up to 43-pice sets.
