Here’s an early look at the Wera 2023 advent calendar tool set.
Yes, it’s not even April, but the new Wera tools look too cool to hold off on discussing.
The Wera 2023 advent calendar, 05136607001, comes with a 9-tool metric hex key set, micro screwdriver handle with 6 bits, screwdriver handle with 5 double-ended bits, slide-on screw retainer, bottle opener, fabric case for the screwdrivers, and a holder for the hex keys.
The hex keys have an ordinary appearance, with straight hex tips at both short and long ends, and a plain finish.
However, look at that case! The holder can rest flat on a benchtop or tool cart, with the tools upright and ready for picking up, or it can be wall-mounted.
And, should you need the tools to come with you, the holder can be quickly removed from its wall-mount for portability.
That seems pretty cool, and I don’t believe I’ve seen any hex key set organizers quite like this before.
You also get a micro screwdriver bit holder and what looks to be a standard bit holder, plus a selection of bits for both.
ETA: Fall 2023
As usual, this looks to be a decent introduction to Wera tools, and it might also offer enough to appeal to users who might already own a bunch of tools from the brand.
In my opinion, the hex key set holder is the star of the show. It also seems like great inspiration for a 3D printed solution for users already happy with the hex key sets they already have.
Thank you Fred for the heads-up!
