I go with craftsman. A lot of my sockets are the old made in America ones but I have a lot of the newer stuff as well. I like craftsman because of the shop your way membership that you get bonus points from and extra deals and they are usually always running deals. Some tips and tricks to shop craftsman... get a free shop your way account on sears and check it every few days for new deals. I have gotten bonus deals like 30$ off a 30$ purchase. Another tip is shop sears website first or if in store look the item up on your phone. A lot of times they have online only prices that they will not match in store but you can do site to store pick up and have it within a few minutes for a cheaper price.
As a man, your main objective in life, besides getting laid, is to obtain as many tools as you can. If it’s hardened steel, buy it. Even if you’ll never use it, you must have it *just in case*. There are no points for second place, get out there and start getting tools. Start at birth, don’t stop until you stop. ...Got it?
Chris....the foam inserts are a Military nuance...so unless real people want to pay for the foam-filled toolbox. You are dealing with meat-heads who work on C-130's or CH-47's so focus on them. We are millennial's so we want to know exactly how to do things. (Especially with our Subaru WRX's with no work done on them and AWD's systems that we expect to be perfect in the Alaskan snow :) thank you for whatever Joe takes on this task.
I love how you put Snap-On "It's expensive...it's expensive...most importantly...it's expensive.....don't buy off a tool truck. You are paying for the convince and I learned that the hard way. You gotta decide what is right for you. Stanley or Craftsman are fine. Don't let a team member scare you. You do what you afford and you will thrive one day if you love what you do.
Craftsman #1 selling mechanics set is a 230 piece set that you can find on the internet for around $100. The Craftsman 230-piece inch and metric mechanic's tool set can help knock off items on your to-do list, whether you're working under the hood or just tightening bolts. Each tool is crafted from durable alloy steel. A wide assortment of inch and metric sizes ensure you'll have just what you need to get the job done. Includes FOUR 10 mm sockets!
Bacho - Volvo PV
Reliable, long lasting, kinda high price for the good ones and usually inherited from father to child.
I won't be buying any other brand unless I need some special tool that Bacho doesn't make because they are extremely good tools.
Torx is basically for all cars these days except for the really low end ones like American or Chinese cars. ;)
Seriously though, PRV engines are shock full of torx and so are Vauxhall/Opels as well as most Japanese and Korean cars.
My first tool box was a Kobalt 227 piece set, best Christmas gift ever. Still use it 6 years later.
For the basics I'd recommend 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 17mm, and 19mm (maybe 21mm) in wrenches, and 3/4" and 1/2" sockets and some extensions. Also pliers, vice grips, and flat head and phillips head screw drivers.
That'll get you through like 90% of the basic repairs on small Japanese cars.
THESE ARE SUPERB SETS!!!
I'm really wanting to have even just quarter or half of very significant(example tourqe wrench) set only for our
manual toyota Innova 2011, manual corolla altis 2002 & manual picanto 2017. And of course for neighbors of mine that I've been somehow helped them with basic car maintenance, going deeper sooner or later.
Again thank you! CHEERS!!!
I'm from canada. We have a store called Canadian tire. I get their hand tools for the lifelong warranty, I can get a brand new tool within 5 mins. For anything expensive I get quality stuff when it goes on sale :)
Harbor Freight is like your $500 beater/10 year old toyota. For the price, nothing will ever beat it. It does everything you need it to but it probably doesn't do much super well. That being said, everyone's had one it definitely has its place, and if even kind of take care of it, then it could last forever.
How I got mine, My mum was looking for a storage place for all her art supplies and at the time I was just using my dads tools. They had a massive pink king chrome tool box with 15 draws. It was a display item and didn't have a price tag. We got the manager and asked him how much he wanted for it. He said we could have it for $300. And we took it. And as we were loading it I noticed it was kinda heavy. And so I opened it and found it was loaded full of tools. Sockets, spanners, wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers, torque set other specialty tools. I got thousands of dollars worth of tools for basically free. My mum kept the pink tool box and I bought an identical king chrome one in blue. Moral of the story is ask about display items and you might get a deal.
hey chris, i'm from newy ork and i have a question that bother me. i just bought a set of husky tools , keep in mind that i am a beginner . it tool box fill with mixed standard and metric tools. idk should i switch up to a different tools box. or buy a extra metric tools . thank you
My tool anology would be an old North American automotive company that no longer is in production or un heard of. Example: DeSoto (by Mopar), Edsel (by Ford), Fargo ( basically a Canadian Dodge truck) and Packard just to name a few. I have an old half inch drive 10 inch long ratchet, seems to be made by MFD USA and an old 12 point short socket set made by Fleet Canada. So there ya go, bet ya never heard of those tool companys before.
for a while, in the states, there was a really good deal with Kobalt Mechanic’s tool sets and what not, they were 247 pieces, well organized and really good quality tools for around $100. i got mine in NM while i was visiting, and i got mine for around $95 due to military discount and the 5% sales tax. definitely consider Kobalt tools too, and the box may not be the best quality, but if you buy an actual tool box with wheels and tons of drawers, the tool drawers from the little Kobalt box are removable so you have all your pieces you need and more.
Harbor freight is better and as someone else stated, buy more harbor freight tools instead of 10 snap on tools or ATD or whatever you like.
AND DO NOT LOSE THAT 10 MM SOCKET. that is literally the one thing you will use most above anything else.
Quick Tip: Buy a really nice socket set - one that your friends will ask to borrow, because they haven't bought one as they can use yours for free. Your friend gets a free socket set, because he 'forgets' to give it back, or you forget who you lent it to. That way, you can buy 6-10 really good socket sets during your lifetime.
A car breaker's yard I used had a big sign over the counter: 'The Man Who Lends Out The Tools Has Gone To Buy Some More'
Hey there Chris! I’m thinking about getting a floor jack to use when doing DIY works on my SUV. I’m thinking about the combo kit from Pro-lift (the best I guess I can find in my place and is on sale right now) which is the 2ton kit. I’m quite confused on which specifications will I get. If it’ll be a 2ton, 3ton or a 6ton jack and stand. My vehicles curb weight is 4,590lbs and has a ground clearance of 9.1inches. Vehicle is 2014 Chevrolet Trailblazer. Some say a 2ton jack and stand kit will do. Some say more than that. Hope you can enlighten me. Thanks!
