Default A Question about the tools used in the Tutorials

I have a question about the tools used in the tutorials. I have a power driver that looks like the one in the tutorials. I am looking for some ball end wrenches that will work with my power driver, it is a Bosch model PS20-2A. I have located a site on the net that sells Hex ball blades, the site is Wiha Quality Tools. I will probably pick some of these Hex wrenches up anyways. I can use them on my airplanes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure you get the power drivers. If I recall, they are fairly short. 4"-7" is a good size. May want to pick up an extention thats around 6"-7" as well.

The set of hand tools I use for the most part are Wiha tools. The have a set that has a retractable bits that are hex on one side and ball on the other. Its the best set of Baja tools I have found. Again, the extension is a godsend.

I have a power driver and all the bits and extensions and things.

But I keep finding myself using my hex hand wrenches for the majority of things for some reason.

I usually use the power driver to install them and go back over them with my hex.
I like to feel how tight the screw is. Also repeted tightining with a power driver will wear out the screw heads fastr. Its not uncomon for me whentesting to install and remove a part 5-6 times in a day. Doing it by hand would kill me.
