What is an SSB pass mark

Sample template for tool tests

This post contains our template for the tool tests in the test forum of Werkzeug-News.de. Since the template is intended to be a guideline for tests of hand tools, power tools, stationary machines, gardening tools, etc., some statements are formulated in a very general way and should be implemented accordingly or omitted or supplemented. Another template for testing services (online shops, service, etc.) will follow.

Please copy the template (below, everything between the green lines) for your report into any text editing program and fill it out offline. Then you can copy your test report and paste it into a new post in our test forum. Finally insert pictures or attach them as files. Our template contains the BBCodes (control characters in square brackets) for formatting the posts in the forum. Please do not change them and do not switch off the BBCode in your posting.

All tests on the same model should be posted in one thread and placed one after the other. The title of the thread should consist of three elements: brand (manufacturer), tool / device type, exact model name, e.g. B. Bosch demolition hammer GSH 16-28 Professional or Knipex pliers wrench 86 03 150.

You should describe your test impressions in the five categories below and rate each with a score from 0 to 7. The better, the more points there are. You can orientate yourself on the following scale (no school grades!):
0 = not tested
1 = unsatisfactory
2 = poor
3 = sufficient
4 = satisfactory
5 = good
6 = very good
7 = Excellent

The evaluation per category can be done as a whole number or with a place after the decimal point, if you calculate it internally from several sub-items.

In the template, the areas to be filled in are marked with curly brackets and in red, e.g. B. {text to be replaced}. Please replace the places including the curly brackets with your details.

Everything that is {red} must be replaced with your own text. (The color of your text does not matter later in the forum. Only the text and the control characters are read).

Please do not change any of the blue areas, just copy them as well.

The green texts here are for explanation and should not be copied. For a better overview, this page and the evaluation calculator should remain open in a separate window. Alternatively, it can also be printed out with a color printer.

Copy and fill in everything between the green lines!

As an alternative to filling in the result block, you can use the calculator in the right column and copy the entire result block from there directly into your forum post.

Please attach photos of the test (device details, application photos, etc.) and provide them with image lines (file comments).
