that is a beautiful, exotic collection (exotic to me, at least).

Where is that BAHCO ratcheting screwdriver made? I bet it's made in the same place the SK one is.

One brand of tools that I would like to see more of is BETA. Do you have any of that stuff?

Monte, this stuff is amazing! Could you explain your background? This looks like you work in a pro shop; how do you know so much about tools? Mein Gott! Everything looks like it just oozes, Alte Welt Qualität!

Exotics galore!!!

I've been curious to find out on my own, who the OEM for those ratcheting screwdrivers are (SK, Bahco, SO, and Suekage Tools (SEK) http://www.abit-tools.com/ippin_page...chedora_a.htmlWell, I now know where it's made in; question now is who in Taiwan makes them!

EDIT: I just realized Monte's post showing the exact same one that SEK sells. Monte, where is KS-Tools from?

I recently bought a SEK 25/32" 1/2" drive socket at a pawn shop. I normally buy US made sockets, but the quality of the SEK was NICE, so I bought it for .25 cents. I couldn't find anything about SEK on the net?

KS-Tools is a german company/brand (not a producer only importer of tools). Here are some PDF catalogs

Maybe if we look trough these pages we can find the manufacturer

some close up`s





The handle is made out of cast aluminium , the body is made out of steel plate while the forged jaws are riveted in place. Very nice ! I also like that release mechanism. But unfortunately the price is ridiculous ( $ 53,80) Luckily it was on sale....

So, I guess you are a Chevy man? Monte Carlo fan? What year is it? I would guess mid to late 80s!
