Are these good screwdrivers for life? I keep buying cheap ones and having to throw them away and probably have spent more over the years on cheap ones than just having nice ones.
I have this set and the kompakt nut driver set. The bits are very weak. I'd end up replacing a few of the bits with Klein and Milwaukee bits. Flathead bend from trying to, hand, unscrew a light fixture screw, and the philip bit doesn't hold its strength as the Klein and Milwaukee bits. Ending up, I don't really use the two Wera sets of mine anymore.

I have found several times that the screw you are trying to reach is recessed and these short drivers that go into a chuck will not fit in the hole. You are better off with individual precision screw drivers. They are worth the extra money.

Wera vs Wiha?
I switched to Wiha simply because everything I've bought recently is still German made. I was disappointed when Wera switched to Eastern European production. There's nothing wrong with that except the prices didn't change....

Does anyone know how Wera compares to Vessel screwdrivers? Are they the same level of quality or recommend one over the other?

I honestly hate that screwdriver. It's a cool concept, but I'll grab any other one in my tool chest over that one. Like the bits are extremely short too. It's pretty, but just sits in out tool chest.
Same here

I had one of their bit adapter shattered in my hand. Called them and they said covered under lifetime warranty. Waiting on the part.

Wera makes some of the best screwdrivers. They're leagues better than Craftsman or any of the other big box brands.
The Craftsman Extreme Grip diamond tip screwdrivers are awesome. I'd put them up against Wera. Ratchets, on the other hand, are Wera is the clear favorite over the Sears Craftsman stuff.

Agreed, I have a set of those and love them. But they're not the average craftsman screwdrivers that someone would grab off the shelf.

Thanks for the input, I was gonna buy but didn't even need to look at reviews because of your response. Any suggestions for an alternative? I'm looking for something like this for my mom's house. Thanks
Honestly, if it's for your mom, I recommend a Greenlee 0153-42C Multi-Tool Screwdriver, 6 in 1 or Klein. If you look at the bits, since it isn't an overly complicated screwdriver like a 13-in-1. They have grip for her hands, and for most things, she can torque town on a screw with ease. It's also about $10 vs. $30 for a Wera. Pretty much the same bits.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

You'll see on this 13-in-1 Multi-Tip Cushion Grip Screwdriver, the bits are small. So if you have a recessed screw, something set back in a hole, you need either a regular Phillips or Flathead. A longer bit might get you there easier most of the time. I think there's less clearance on the Wera because of the slanted head that holds the bit if I remember correctly. That's bitten me multiple times running back and forth for standard screwdrivers or an old reliable 6-in-1.

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../305456601

I have Electricians that either like Klein or Greenlee. Sometimes simple is honestly all you need. Wera does make some really great tools, like instrument screwdrivers, but for this application, even though a long winded answer, keep it simple. It's a screwdriver. Hope that helps.

You aren't even going to check the 250+ 5 star reviews because one dude on SD doesn't like it? Seems logical...
I wouldn't criticize the guy. I just saw he responded, so I gave him a logical response on why I would go with something else. Just my take on it. There might be something better for him is all. There are a few other reviews in the thread that also felt the same. The Amazon reviews might not have faced the same situations, like with recessed screws, so it's worth noting if he's looking for a simple all in one solution for him mom.

Instead of the Wera 051924, I'd get both of the following for about the same money:
Klein Tools 32500 Screwdriver / Nut Driver (11-n-1)
https://www.amazon.com/Screwdrive...B0015SBILG
Klein Tools 32561 Stubby Screwdriver / Nut Driver (6-in 1) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005FQDHHC
