I get free tools a lot by helping people move. iv'e gotten everything from loaded tool boxes to vintage table saws. people don't want to move what they don't use, and they are heavy so most people are more than happy to part with at least a handful or two :) Analogy: Pittsburgh is like Pittsburgh the place.... that's it. i still totally use them for shit jobs and for beating on with a hammer lol but they are awful.

Craftsman ratchet wrenches were a good investment for me. They were $100 for a set of metric and American. The only issue I have with them is the body thickness of the wrenches. If there's a nut or bolt that's really in there, you're gonna hurt your hands. But Craftsman offer great starter tools for a good price. Husky tools are built well and are a pretty quality.

Good idea. Had trouble getting my oil plug off today. Plus it was raining. So I just sprayed all I had on it, which was WD-40, and abandoned the job for today. I'll get a bit of pipe tomorrow. Hopefully no rain. It's a good thing I bought an extra plug. I have a feeling the one on it right now will be roughed up by the time I get it off. (Someone else changed the oil last time, not me.) ps. An impact driver is on the list of future buys.

My dad would always insist on keeping an old rusty pipe in every car for that exact purpose. (That and an old wood block for use as a wheel chock). I didn't really see the point of it until my tire blew out on the highway and I had to change to the tire. That rusty pipe and I have been best friends ever since. (Although I got him a breaker bar for Christmas as a thank you. Although he still thinks his pipe is better 😂)

When I buy my tools, I don't really care for the brand. I care more about where it was actually made. As long as it's built in USA, I'll buy it. I try to avoid Chinese made garbage. I've had Chinese made tools snap and break on me.

Gearwrench is the game changer at a great price you get more tools for the money and that what it is all about. Gearwrench will put a hurt on Snap and Mac and kill off Matco and Cornwell. As for Matco tools made in China at Snap-on prices come on. The only thing they make are toolboxes for the massive mark up. Harbour Freight has the best boxes for the money. Cornwell are shit tools and the dealer only last less than a year then you won't see another one for 20 years. Craftsman all but dead. Stanly, you pissed away 1 billion dollars On Craftsman when you should off put it into Mac reduce cost or help out your struggling dealers.

I suggest buying a harbor freight roll around cart as a first storage unit, they vary in sizes and go on sale all the time. Where I live you can catch their biggest box at $120 on sale, and $89 for the smaller one.

Always spend money on high end precision tools. It's ok to skimp on simple tools, but for any measurement device, or torque tool, buy a good one. Trust me, cheap precision tools are not precise for long.

Back in the day, Craftsman's caveat was they were the only brand that could be exchanged on Sunday.. With Sears all but gone, they are just overpriced junk with a good marketing campaign. Somewhere I still have a shoebox full of broken Craftsman tools that I have never gotten replaced because I bought better quality tools to replace them. At times, Sears hand tools have been made with quality metal. At times (the late 1970's come to mind) they were just unadulterated garbage. One thing has remained constant: they are always poorly cut! when I replaced my Craftsman sockets with true quality tools (in this case SK), I never again rounded a nut or bolt head. My strategy in acquiring tools was to buy sets of cheap tools, and when they broke, replace them with good ones. One of the worst (or was it the best?) tools that I have owned was 13 piece set of K-Mart sockets with wrench and case. I paid $4.99 for them in 1980 to use as a keep in car set. From a metal standpoint, the were awesome. I abused them and they never broke. Unfortunately they were horribly cut and the ratchet had a habit of slipping, barking my knuckles badly. I never used them without cursing them. I was too cheap to throw them away and had them well into the 2000's before giving them to a friend who needed a socket set. I wonder why he doesn't talk to me anymore.... After over 40 years of tool collecting (starting in my teens), nearly all of my hand tools are solid, high quality tools. Some are SK, some are Matco, a few are Snap-On and a small number have obscure German names. Most of my power tools are still garbage. I find that when an electric tool dies, it is an inconvenience. When a hand tool breaks, I hurt myself. Chris, how do you get by with so few screwdrivers? I probably have well over a hundred and no two fit quite the same.

get a GOOD adjustable wrench. I'm a stagehand and special effects tech for live events/film and i carry an 8" or 10" Irwin adjustable wrench daily. there's nothing like being able to whip one out of your back pocket in the field to deal with stubborn nuts and bolts when seconds matter. alot of us have non-waxed tie line (around 1'-2') as a wrist loop on the end of our wrenches for quick access and to improvise a carry handle out of the wrench its tied to.
