  • Every tool has a story right? Well we find out about a tool that was handed down from one tradesman to his son. Kind of like keeping the torch going.

    Currently using my grandfather’s hand-me-down Kleins from his time as a lineman. I have his Lineman pliers, sidecuts, and needlenose pliers. Recently bought a Klein multimeter and strippers. Great tools! Always my go-to tools for electrical, minus my Milwaukee 11-in-1 screwdriver and Irwin Auto Adjusting Strippers for romex jacket. Gotta have those things.

    Can't teach an old dog new tricks. But those are the guys that inspired me to be a better electrician.

    Milwaukee makes some tough hand tools but they tend to be a little off where accuracy matters. I like their demolition drivers and the 11-in-one for ruff work.
    Klein has been doing it so long with quality always at the focus, the movement with their electrical pliers are so smooth like butter.
    But for my main screwdrivers it's gotta be Wera. It's easier to turn them faster, and less fatigue while doing it.

    Been a Klein man since I started. Started around 12 working with my Dad as go fer like he did. Did Electrical work with him (owned his own business from 1966-2013) for 20 years as an adult till he got sick in 2013 and passed in 2016. I like Ideals ratcheting screwdrivers due to the integrated wirenut twister, but prefer Klein pliers. Still use Klein screwdrivers along with the Ideals. In the Security business now. Still do some electrical, helping out electricians and family.

    I have been doing HVAC/R for 25 plus now, I started in the trade with Craftsman. After singing the trade song enough (If you don't leave meat the job is not complete),I was finally able to pony up for Klein. Haven't looked back since! I see it this way, the way companies are buying each other out and Germany making a run for our market (Knipex, Wiha, NWS, KC), we will be down to 2 or 3 brands anyway (excluding HF). Klein is even having NWS or Knipex make pliers for them now. You were also correct, Milwaukee is flooding the market! As I said before, I bleed yellow. But it is funny how much Bosh stuff I see that mimics Milwaukee. Newbies, buy what you can afford to start, and only buy what you can feel. Stay away from online tool buys, they will burn you down the road. I can't tell you how many times I went to the store, picked up a tool and said this sucks!

      Until recently I only bought klein tools. Knipex tools are great I love their plier wrenches and cobras but I'm always bias to Klein. The minute Klein make a good plier wrench and cobras good buy knipex lol

  • The Mount of Olives Channel with Gary Sawyer

    I love my Klein tools, been an Electrician for 26 years, however, I disagree with the Electrician in this video about the reamer that fits on a screw driver, If he's give it a chance he would discover that it is 100 times better than using the ends of his channel locks. .....Also Mac Tools is the company that is making Klein's power tools (powered by DeWalt batteries) .

    Klein is good. The German made Knipex makes some quality tools as well. I am an Hvac contractor which does electrical work. Tools in action!!! Love your stuff.

      Same here bro. I treat my kliens like their gold lmao. I rough up my Milwaukee's and knipex tools. Knipex plier wrenches and cobras are the best and their bolt cutters but everything else klein all day.
