Tools of the Trade: Best Buys

Posted by on 12/10/2013 to Engine Tools
You might have a hammer, a Phillips head screw driver and a couple of wrenches lying around that you’ve picked up over the years, but if you are serious about taking on more than just the stray household repair, something like the Craftsman 220-piece Mechanics Tool Set would be a wise investment. Packed with an assortment of sockets, hex wrenches and screwdriver bits, you’ll never have to make another special trip to the hardware store to pick up that specific ¼ inch drive 7 mm socket again. If working on cars is your trade, then you likely already have one of these: mechanic tools set. If by chance you don’t, one of the most important car mechanic tools is a 3-ton hydraulic jack. Trying to jack up your car using the one that came with your spare can be a pain and even dangerous. With a specialty full-sized jack at the helm of your automotive repair tools, raising your car and sliding under some jack stands can be done safely and in a fraction of the time. Of course, having all the tools in the world won’t help you much if you can’t see what you are doing. This is where it would be wise to look into picking up a fluorescent work lamp. These will come in all shapes and sizes, so look for one that will suit the work space you are in. Many models have a multitude of adjustable positions, so you should have no trouble lighting up even the hardest to reach of spaces. Investing in quality is always worthwhile when you can afford it. Depending on the job you are doing, specialty tools exist for every vocation, but the above-mentioned list of best buys should certainly give you a head start on establishing a respectable arsenal of implements.
