Lately, I've been breaking down 19mm sheets of maple ply. As much as I like the original TSO GRS-16, this newer version will make that task a lot easier.  [cool]

hi Peter

Thanks they are really nice. that little ratchet that takes a single driver bit is so easy to use I bought it because I borrowed one when I had to fit a door closer cover that was really close to the ceiling

I will keep posted as I've a master plan for some wera related sys boxes

Hi Mick

Yes, I have that little ratchet and use it a lot. For the older or more arthritic members of the FOG it really does make life a lot easier.

At last years D&M show at Kempton Park I saw some low profile sockets that go with the ratchet but cannot find them on the Wera web site. They are very squat and so you can get the ratchet and the socket into a space about 25 - 30 mm high. Any ideas ?

Yes they sound cool I've not found them yet

Also I can't find any long sockets either

I don't think Wera has long / deep sockets.  But you can put any brand 1/4" drive deep socket on the ratchet. Are they just not available in the UK?

I can definitely get some deep sockets from another make. but I do like a bit of brand allegiance lol

I think that's festools fault

Picked these up from Ebay. 9" length as opposed to many similar that are 8" so they compliment the 7" Knipex ones I already have better than 8" would. And I really like the beveled tips.

Cut it twice, measure once and it's still too short
