I need to order some new screwdrivers. I know Wiha is good because I used to use them but they weren't electrician's screwdrivers.

Which set do you guys that use Wiha use? Probably just get a 5-piece set.
I'm not talking about the insulated ones, just a regular set.

Thanks!

Not sure what that means? They may not be synonymous to electrical like klein, but I wouldn't go so far to say they are not electrician's screwdrivers. They don't go by the name keystone or cabinet tip driver, but they are high quality and I think they fit the hardware I have come across pretty damn well. Their 4.5 and 3.5mm slotted drivers fit terminal blocks far better than any klein I have come across. I got the 10 pc set, I would honestly have to say I do not use the really tiny screwdrivers. If they had the perfect kit, it would come with Robertson 1 2 3, slot 3.5,4.5,6.5,9, and phillips 1,2,3.

Wihas are awesome. Tips last forever IMO. 2nd would be Wera's.

EB - get the real Robbys with Robby tips. There is a Difference them any other square head. I picked up a Wera - and returned it. Ordered me up a Canuck Robby - and the fitment is just like my other 10 year Square Drive Set

I am pretty happy with the robertson tip that Wiha has. It is tapered just like the original robertson, it is not magnetic but it can hold screws on upside down all angles because of the tapered robertson design. Works for me.
