If anyone is interested, I thought I‘d share some more pics.

I got a European version delivered today.
As others pointed out:
- Screwdrivers - Felo 400 Series, nicely made and I like the Felo-feel
- Hex-Keys have a big „Made in Germany“ stamp, but maybe not the nicest finish, but not bad either
- Adjustable wrench feels good in hand and has a nice finish, but is slightly too loose from my viewpoint
- ratcheting wrenches, 72teeth, nice smooth finish

Thanks for sharing. Better photos does indeed reveal more.
I agree on the Felo handles, they’re good. But so is Wera and Wiha.
A little disappointed on the hex set, I’ve got Wera, Felo and some cheaper private label but still very good. These look a bit cheap. Would have thought the adjustable spanner was good, apparently not. Of all, an adjustable spanner really must not be sloppy, even for light duty.

I would go for Felo or Wiha over Wera all day, but handles are a subjective experience...

I got some PB Swiss last year and might have gotten addicted to the Swiss Grip.
But I also have a set of the Felo Slim VDE (not only slim blades, but also slim handles) and love those, too!
Too much choice.

Another adjustable wrench from a second set has way better tolerances. Maybe just an outlier. But I never really liked those anyway. Knipex pliers wrench is where it’s at for me...

I bought two sets for insanely cheap on a deal, so I am trying to basically sell off the second one to finance mine to a big portion, allowing me to justify keeping a set of Festool screwdrivers. what a fanboy I am, apparently. ;)

The „Festool“ print on the drivers is off-center on some as well. For sure this set is not worth it at a regular price.
Might have some „want“ factor for the uniqueness, but for MSRP or street prices I am sure you will find better tools for cheaper.

If anyone wants detail pictures, let me know.

Because of the excessive slop in many/most adjustable wrenches/spanners is how they earned their derogatory nickname of "adjustable hammer".  [big grin]

How did you know?  [big grin]
Of the few things Bacho has that has been really good, their high end adjustable spanners have been good. Think that’s the only one I have left, and that gets occasionally use.

Grobkuschelig, I was intrigued but this set to dedicate to wrenching and adjusting FESTOOL TOOLS. As it’s not really a “complete” set, but does seem to cover the nuts and bits on Festool tools and accessories. I planned to use the SYS for screws and just put the tools in the FT tool box. I’ve been on the fence, might jump if I find a good deal as you did.
