That's not good . . .
The state of my bike or the state of my tools?
The wear and surface condition of those tools, not good.
I wouldn't comment on someone's ride . . .
haha. yeah, fortunately the bike went back together without any leftover bolts or screws.
I looked over all of the bits and pieces and that adaptor is the only one that is showing any corrosion. The green rubber part of the ratchet handle is very soft and gouges easily. A bit disappointed with that. But, the tradeoff of having the pivot head outweighs the handle material. It's really really handy.
I’d guess the corrosion isn’t from regular old moisture but, more likely your sweat/oil from handling it. The sweat from my hands will eat through a half inch of titanium. Ok, maybe an exaggeration but, it took me a long time to learn to be scrupulous about cleaning tools because of it. Literally any chromed or stainless alloy I touch. As for the handle, it’s soft for a better grip so, I’m not surprised it gets a bit knackered from use. But I understand your expectations for a pricey bit of kit.
Really not sure what the issue with the grips is
That's weird. I have mine for like five years. No rust whatsoever. Bikes, cars, even on the boat on Lake Michigan. Best tool set I ever had for personal use.
Could be this. I usually wipe down my tools, but admit to having been a bit lazy as of late. Maybe I'll what Wera says. I had sent them a comment about how wobbly the extensions are when connected and they never replied. Maybe this'll get their attention.
Certain chemicals such as brake cleaner, or brake fluid are harsh on certain rubber or plastics. Yes, tools included.
I don't think this tool has been exposed to any chemicals other than run of the mill dirt and greasiness from chain lube sling.
I am not looking at this thread anymore ! Every time I do i find smth I do not need but cannot live without and my credit card comes out
It's a great set. Very happy I spent the money.
Grandad’s... it has served me well in a few pinches.
If anyone needs a reason to spend money, KC Tool is having a sale on some Wera tools and they are pretty steep discounts (up to 40%). So if you want/need a set of hex wrenches that will actually last a life time, now would be a good time to scratch that itch...
This is not a helpful post.
Those are right purty
Too bad they don't ship to the United States
sure they do
Actually, I've ordered plenty of things from them. And considering they are based out of Kansas that wouldn't make much sense.
Thanks I found them on Amazon a little cheaper.
