I came here after I can't remove the starter motor of my car, there are no tools like a ratchet, and I was slipping my spanner and my wrench spanner was hitting on that radiator hose. Shit, now I have to give my car to a mechanic for just cleaning the starter motor.
I once heard of a Rolls Royce having its engine go out up in the mountains and the company airlifted a mechanic and a new engine and installed it for free. Cause engines in RRs don't break. So they say.
As a vehicle technician I think buying a good brand first time is the best option it means building your tools up slower but you will have more time on the tools in the long run I went for the wagon no brands mentioned but I would but things on sale to save and had a 0% interest account as I was an apprentice but even today I've not had one go wrong they have paid for there selfs a million times over but I did go cheap on my boxes as I didn't fancy a 3 grand box but it's all down too the person if you like starting cheaper then it's also a good way to go as when you start replacing them with the better brands you them have tools you have at home instead of having to then go buy more for home or packing Aload to take Home so everyone to there own on it but I feel that the better brands have done me so well
As someone whose pretty new to this (only have done an alternator, brakes, and oil change) where do you set your limit? My car has a bad CV joint and it’s my daily driver and I’m not exactly sure if I should be screwing with stuff like that just yet, but at the same time, how do you learn? But I also have to get to work....I guess my question is how do you know when to just take it to a professional? Lol. Thanks for any help.
Craftsman (USA manufactured) is like Toyota; high quality, relatively smooth, almost an unbeatable warranty, but won't break the bank and their sets often come with everything you need. If you wait for a sale, it'll cost as much as the Hyundai.
depends on what tool I need box end wrench (wright) ratchet wrench (gear wrench) channel lock, vice grip. and harbor freight for the ones that i'm going to cut weld,grind or otherwise modify to fit that one special job that I probable wont need for anything else.
I’m a 17 year old currently working at Wendy’s to get my truck legal. I’m making $8 an hour pulling in about $450 every other week after tax. I can’t really afford to just go out and buy super nice tools all together so I never need to buy tools again. I just go the autoparts store, find the part(or parts) I need, and if I don’t have the tools to fix it then I’ll pick up the tools along with the parts. I like doing this because I only ever buy what I need, and if I need it again, I already have it. I honestly don’t spend a lot of money on tools. I have a socket set in SAE and Metric, basic wrench set, breaker bar, and a tool bag. I also have a bit driver with a ton of attachments for screw drivers, and torx bits. I rarely ever need an allen wrench, but if I do I can borrow my neighbors. All of my tools have cost me about $100. I don’t plan on buying the specialty tools because of the parts store rental thing, so that saves me a bunch of money. On the cost of my truck, parts, and tools, I only have about $2200 into the truck. For as well as itruns and drives, and getting tools out of the deal I don’t think it’s too bad!
Chris I am 63. I started working on cars when I was 14. My main trade was electronics. Video, audio, etc. Then I learned to teach. If I could repair it, I could fix it. AND. As years passed I collected more and more tools. Tools that had expired from the assembly line at a Toshiba facility I worked at. Those are some really high quality tools. For automotive I have Craftsman. Pittsburgh, Tekton and a lot of other tools. I have at least 2 full sets of automotive repair tools. My electronic repair tool collection is exstensive. I love good tools. There is nothing I really need. If I am doing a specialty job I just Rent for free. I Love Tools!
I know this video is old, and thanks for making it. BUt you did not mention a torque wrench as a requirement for a mechanic. Even with something simple as rotating tires, you want to make sure your lug nuts are properly torqued. The same for oil drain bolts and caliper brackets. A torque wrench is the 2nd thing I bought after a breaker bar.
I like that hammer. Hickory handles are better than all the other gimmicky handles. The fiberglass handles can be unstable. Unbreakable hammers tend to put the shock in your wrist, also unstable on the initial hit. AntiVibe Mac Hammers. They suck! That hickory handle will transfer shock through from the handle back to head and center on the strike point to take a lot of the brunt away from your wrists. They are also more comfortable.
Just to mention something really important: before you buy tools and dream on repairing your own car check with what you can and can't do legal-wise. Otherwise you might loose your vehicle and/or driver's license and/or pay a hefty fine for doing that.
I just bought my first toolbox and tool set a few days ago, and received it yesterday. I have a trolley that holds 300kg, has 7 drawers, and pretty much all the basic tools i need. Only cost me 400EURO new, Im loving it!
When you have a snap-on tool in your hand you can feel the difference just in how the weight is distributed. All my tools are craftsman and pittsburg, with a couple of snap-on tools (got those for free), and I can always tell the difference, especially if it is a wrench with gears (crescent, socket)
in my country people really like this Bahco brand, they are really overpriced as it comes to quality, yet people just don't realize how mid class tools they are. When someone just says it's good everyone blindly starts to believe it. we don't really have that good quality brands here in finland. kinda sad cause it feels like i pay pretty much the amount i would expect a high quality tool to cost...
I think the old german brands like hazet, gedore, stallwillw and wera are the best tool smoney can buy. And i would revommend everybody to not buy cheap tools and save your money for some propper ones.
Hey Chris what’s up I just got my first car a few months ago and recently started watching your videos after my brakes started making noises and had to be replaced. Like you said before you save a lot of money when you DIY which is why I have been getting really into your videos and I just want to say that you are awesome bro! The knowledge you provide us with really comes in clutch! Maybe it’s just me or I speak for other subscribers also, but you’ve sparked this interest in cars for me ! By hey Man just Keep it up. I don’t regret subscribing at all and am really looking forward to future vids!
