The bits are really nice with this set, however I'm leaving 3 stars because the magnet that holds them in came out after three days of use, very unfortunate.

The Tips have worn out and round anything I try to work on.
Wow.. As mentioned earlier by two of the other reviewer's, the little magnet that holds the bits in place fell out of the handle within two minutes of me inspecting this tool. I didn't even get a chance to wrench on my new kit with it! Very disappointed to say the least. Now I'll have to spend More money to find a way to use these drives. On a brighter note, the drives do look very nice, well machined, good quality. At $35 this wasn't exactly a cheap purchase, as I'm trying to buy nicer tools for my buggy, but I guess I should have spent the extra $5 for the Team Associated version of this tool. Probably a much more reliable purchase. Bad on me. Funny thing is, I went with the ProTek product because they get great reviews and I was trying to support Amain Hobbies. Oh well.. Hopefully someone at Amain or ProTek reads these posts and can do something to address this problem. Supposed industry standard tools falling apart in less than 5 minutes is not cool. 1 star..
Very good machining on the working ends of the bits. Love that you can swap them out and even use them in a 1/4" chuck for an electric screwdriver. No problems with the handle though I would prefer a larger diameter.
Handy tool to have at the workbench or on the trail
I bought this set mainly for the 5mm and 7mm hex drivers to attach to my dremel driver. Now I can power through wheel takeoffs. A quality set like this is hard to find. The hex bits are good too. I keep them as a second set in my RC gear box. Guys always seem to need to borrow tools when you’re at the pit table.
I like it perfect for when I go rock crawling nice compact kit
Tip rounded off within a month of using them soon as I got one tight bolt tip rounded off and the magnet was not even stuck in mine from day one opening the box
This kit has been great. All of the popular tools for 1/10th scale maintenance in a compact kit. Handel is easy to grasp and the bits lock into place with a strong magnet.
The bits are of good quality, retaining sharp hex edges after lots of uses.....durable also as I have used them in a powered screwdriver a few times. The handle however, pretty much sucks, somewhat slick to grip and the magnet fell out soon after I got the set. When I tried to put it back in, it broke into small pieces. I do not abuse my tools either. I wonder if AMain would replace my handle? I had to buy an expensive Hudy handle just to have the magnetic feature and keep the bits secure while in use.
Excellent tool set, perfect and compact for the track or trail. Strong hard tips. All the important sizes, pick one up!
Awesome tool kit good quality I’ve built a few kits with it so far tips are still perfect handle feels great in the hand I’ve also been taking it with me when I go out crawling perfect for a small tool kit
Simple, effective. 4 stars b/c you cannot store the drivers in the handset. For the price and being ProTek they are great though. Contains the bare basic drivers for your needs. Easy to throw in a side pocket due to the size.
These work perfect for what I need nothing to pricey
Bits fit very well, work great in 1/4 hex power tools. Magnet inside handle came out after putting in a bit for the first time. 1.5mm twisted then later snapped after tightening set screws. Bit storage could be upgraded. Handy toolset besides these issues
The Protek 5 piece 1/4" & nut driver set offers high quality at a good price. The bits have precision ends, easily identifiable-- by the easy to see/read markings on them, and are magnetized-- to hold the screws/nuts so they don't fall off. Another reviewer said that a magnet fell out in their set, but I have had no issues with my purchase. I would highly recommend this set for the cost, and quality, when compared to some of the higher priced competition.
