Just received these Were allan keys from Amazon:



Lovely! Not a sharp edge on any of them. Supposed to be less likely to damage hex bolts than standard ones as well.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

I've so nearly clicked the button on a set of those a few times. But I really don't need any more allen keys.

I bought a set of those, they're so nice that I bought a little Wera tool set, then a bigger Wera socket set.

I don't regret the outlay though, they're always a pleasure to use. I don't leave them in the garage though!

You can get a magnetised set if you want for a bit more.

Wera and Wiha kit is addictive I have found, and then there are Knippex and Gedore ....

Knippex Cobra slip joint pliers are the only plumbing pliers that don't make me swear and want to throw them out the window when I am using them. That reminds me I need a couple more in different sizes before I tackle the bathroom.
