[Buzz Kill]That scares the crap out of me. I had a good friend who died, when the vehicle pulling him moved over a half lane or so to pass a stationary vehicle. The sled kept going straight into the stationary vehicle. He died at the scene. Please be careful. [/Buzz Kill]

Shoveling the driveways was hard. This made it easier.

I'm more impressed by the very chic mock turtleneck. Everything about him screams sexy.

First - Glad to finally meet you all (or some of you) at the HH before Snowzilla.

Next - as the newbie not only to the HH, but also to anything "automotive mechanic-y" (it's a real word, Google said so), I am looking to invest in some tools. Is there a good, inexpensive place to get decent quality sets? Is Amazon good? Are Kobalt, Craftsman, Bosch, etc... decent brands? I just want something that works for learning the truck, getting work done, and that will last a good bit if I take care of them.

Along the same lines, other than a basic tool set, what else is worth investing in? Floor jack? Air compressor?

Thanks!
Woody

NoVa Happy Hour - 3rd Thurs Monthly

I've had Craftsmen since junior high, lifetime warranty has been great, & they're cheaper than Snap-on. Get a mix of metric & standard. Floor & hydraulic jacks are also must-haves. Air compressor would be nice, but you'll need impact sockets & wrenches to go with it. I have a 25 gallon compressor that came with impact tools, I want to say it was less than 250.00 from Home Depot. It's served me well, but the tools are pretty basic. I've been building my tool collection for over 3 decades and it would cost a fortune to replace, but I started with a basic mechanics toolset from Sears Craftsmen when I was in jh and I'm still using it.

Ditto on the basic Craftsman set when made in USA. Here is my original set from the early 80s and they continue work great. About 5 years ago I spent time sourcing the now discontinued Craftsman Professional tools (thinking made by SK Tools - USA). I would put these up to the Pepsi challenge to the big box professional tools any day. Thinking Craftsman's best stuff is now called Industrial (but Chinese). If you spend time looking around, the made in USA stuff is still out there.

OH - and the best place if you want to get the older sets - which of course are better - is to continue to look on Craigslist....find a rolling tool chest full of goodies for a few hun'd - I got one out of a divorce, and another from a guy who just moved and didn't want to take his tools.....be patient you will find great deals
