Did you receive all parts the manufacturer stated would be included in the package?: True

What other parts do you consider comparable to this product?: HORUSDY 1000V Insulated Screwdriver Set, VDE, Proskit, Wera 1000 V insulated Screw drivers

What were the biggest problems encountered?: No problems as such. The screw drivers worked amazingly well as expected. Could argue that the handles are slightly thicker but for the use case of energized circuits and high level of insulation that is an expected drawback.

Testing the Set:

The screw drivers have very good durability and stood very well with testing with experiments like dropping, bending forces etc. The insulation and grip is pretty solid and works great while working in tough conditions. The grip gives confidence while working and the rating makes you feel secure while in energized circuits as well.

I tried using the various screwdrivers on to different screw heads and found them working perfectly and fitting snuggly as required. The magnetic ends make it easy to take out the screws especially in an energized circuit where holding the screw is not an option. The magnet are strong and the screw are held strongly enough to the screw driver but are not so strong that the screws don't come out when required.

One drawback is that the handles are slightly thicker but for the use case of energized circuits and high level of insulation that is an expected drawback. Also, thanks to the thicker handles, the grip is very good, soft and comfortable. Though the screwdrivers are definitely bulky and carrying all of them with you while working is a difficult task.

The most impressive thing is the ease with which screws undo themselves thanks to the superb grip and snug fitting of the screw drivers. The durability as well makes it look like they would last a lifetime and unlikely to break. But could still be lost Slight smile

Conclusion:

In conclusion, the Wiha 32093 Slotted and Phillips Insulated Screwdriver Set is a high-quality set that lives up to its claims of providing safety, comfort, and durability. The set is ideal for anyone working with energized applications, and the softFinish cushion grip handle provides comfort and control. The set is also OSHA compliant, and each tool meets ASTM, IEC, VDE, EN, ISO, NFPA standards. They are suitable for someone who is in need of a reliable set of screwdrivers for their work.

Note:
Even though the screwdrivers are rated for 1000V AC take precautions while using in energized circuits and wear proper safety gear.
