Ratcheting wrenches I think that's what they're called very useful shit..
Good set of sockets and ratchets is a must have. Only two brands I have enough time with to vouch for would be stanley and bostitch zero complaints
Oil filters should be hand tightened. I usually just take em off by hand if I'm having trouble I'll wrap a rag around it, 90% of the time I dont need a wrench unless it's a cartridge fliter
Agreed most minor details can be done with nothing more than a multitool in some cases.
Havnt been said yet bet a GOOD Vice and a solid work bench / work table are necessary.
just built a long ass work bench for my garage with a removable swivle vice and its the best decission i have ever made.
Yeah that is my next project. I have a couple solid wood doors that I'm thinking about turning into a work bench.
I sell Carlyle hand tools at work and they are pretty good, I've been slowly switching over my craftsman stuff to carlyle.
Cordless Impacts(Snap-On or Milwaukee are my Favorites) and locking flex head ratchets, I've got Armstrong. You don't realize how good they are until you use them.
Absolute best tool I have ever bought.
A good pair of digital calipers imo is a must have.
This is what I have -
Anyone know if these cheapo adjustable circle cutters are close to usable on metal? Mostly 1-ish mm stuff, but maybe some 2-3mm once in a while.
I decided to go in on a set of Knipex pliers
My boss bought a set of knipex pliers, they're amazing. I just can't justify the price for how little I would use them since I almost always have the right wrench for the task.
knipex wrench pliers are great for AN fittings & hydraulic lines.Have some knipex stuff at work from somewhere between the 80's and very early 00's.
I have some Mac branded Knipex pliers and enjoy them very much.
knipex is nice cuz there pretty thin so they can fit in alot of places.
got a set of snapon pliers off the truck and am happy with em. think they were cheaper too
I decided I need to pick up a Milwuakee electric ratchet.
Should I go for the 1/4" or the 3/8" drive? Apparently they both have the same power ratings? Most of my sockets are 3/8" though.
I bought the 3/8s since I almost never use 1/4inch
The 3/8s one will have a higher tolerance for torque for when you want to break something loose manually.
Hands down a must have for an under hood light, use it at work and at home everyday
