- So, first of all–there’s nothing wrong with these. They’re perfectly serviceable and come with a nice stand that can be screwed down. They wear well, and seem, so far, to be harder than the Eklind brand Allen keys I also have. They are comfortable, and the yellow plastic handles resist oil just fine. Unless you’ve got some reason, as I have, to be unusually picky about your T-handles, these are great!However, I have a reason to be picky about these: I’m a machinist. Every day, I loosen and tighten many small screws in the course of my job, and for that, these have one disadvantage. They are much shorter than several other brands I’ve used, and the smaller the size, the shorter the tool. This is irritating because the reason I use T-handles is speed–you crack the fastener with a snap of the wrist, then spin the shank of the tool in your fingers. But you can’t do that with the smaller sizes; they’re just too short. Even if you have no reason to care about speed, if the tool is longer, you have two other advantages: one, you can grind or cut it shorter when it wears out, which multiplies tool life by an order of magnitude. And two, you can’t apply nearly as much torque with a longer tool, making it harder to strip the hex head or break the tool.So, for me, I’d rather have had a set of Eklind Power-T keys. Each size of those is the same length, and they are all longer than any of these. But unless you have some reason to care, there’s nothing at all wrong with these, and they’re certainly great quality.
- I have used the bondhus hex key set for years and been very pleased with the quality, so I finally decided it was time for a TV handle set,and I so far have not been disappointed. These are made in the USA, the price is good,and no the quality is excellent. I especially like that they don’t twist up a lot when you put a lot of torque on them trying to break loose a set screw that’s been there for about 10 years or so. Great American made product at a fair price.
- Electrician here. For a cheap set of Insulated Hex T-handles I was very pleasantly surprised. They are inexpensive but NOT anything like I’d consider cheap. I don’t use them on every job, but when I need them I really need them. The steel is very hard, and seems to be of very good quality. I highly recommend this product.
- I’ve owned a metric set of Bondhus hex drivers for more than a decade, and they have performed flawlessly on everything from delicate work to heavily torqued bolts in cast iron. Finally ordered the imperial set when I got tired of digging through a tool drawer full of a vast, lifelong collection of individual drivers. This is a long overdue improvement in my workspace. If this set lasts as long as the metric one, it’ll outlast me for sure.
- I got this SAE set and the matching Metric set (red handled, Bondhus 13389). I might get the green handled star key set as well. First off, these tools are pretty inexpensive. I did a lot of research looking for well reviewed, well made T-handle hex keys, and the Bondhus turned out to be the least expensive and the best reviewed of all. When they arrived I wasn’t disappointed. The soft handles feel really good (good thick coating, not a superficial light coating), the hex keys fit perfectly, and they are a joy to use. I also like the fact they are clearly marked so you know exactly what size you’re grabbing from the holder.In terms of hardness and durability, many of the reviews here on Amazon state they are very hard and don’t strip out, and quite durable. I haven’t really put mine to the test, but what little I’ve used them they seem pretty strong and solid. Bondhus states in their product description that they are welded in such a way as to prevent handle breakage.The stands are fairly cheap (as other reviewers have mentioned) but I like the fact that they include the stand, and it is a decent design allowing you to clearly see the sizes. Maybe one day I’ll construct better stands from wood, but the included stand works great for now, so I consider that a plus. After all, I didn’t buy this set for the stand.If you’re hesitating, and can afford this, go ahead and pull the trigger. Alternately, you can get the pocket set of fold-out hex keys (get SAE and Metric to be covered), Bondhus makes these also. Best of luck in your tool shopping!
- My good buddy has his own business installing sprinklers and asked me about a good set of tee handles so I ordered him these and had them sent to his house for a surprise, he loves em and uses them every day. I’m a cnc machine repair tech and my friends are always asking me about tool brands and quality……..proto and bohndus are the only 2 hex key products I would buy,they are very durable and last
- Bondhus makes the best T-handle hex tools on the market today, hands down. Ensure that the male end of the tool has completely engaged with the female hex slot before applying torque. Easy to hammer down into the slot to ensure total engagement. These bad boys will never strip out like the cheaper Chinesium hex wrenches. I feel completely confident putting the muscle on these tools. If you don’t have a use for the ball-end T-handles, this is the best set you can buy. I would have happily paid double to get tools made this well.
- Before I purchased these, I had purchased the Metric set because everyone was giving them five stars. After doing an extensive rebuild on my motorcycle brakes, I found out why… they are that good. There was no rounding of the tips of the wrenches and they were snug enough that there was no rounding of the heads of the bolts. They worked flawlessly, so I purchased these.
