  • Last year I was a traveling mechanic working on electric vehicles. I forgot my Craftsman wrenches at home and had to pick up another set while I was on the job so I ran down to Harbor Freight and picked up their medium quality wrenches. I have to tell you, the current generation of Harbor Freight wrenches are WAY nicer than my Craftsman. Like seriously nicer, they feel great, look good, had great tolerances and the price was on point. I've actually stopped using my Craftsman wrenches because I like the Harbor ones better. Plus Harbor has these new tool boxes which are stunningly nice. They way too big for my needs but really damn nice. I never thought I'd say I like Harbors wrenches better than Craftsman, but here we are!

  • My Car Brand/Tool Analogy: Harbor Freight Tools are like a Chevy or Ford they are nice but they aren't as nice as the others. Craftsman Tools are like a Mercury or a Buick they are very nice but not as expensive as a Lincoln or Cadillac. Stanley Tools are like a Cadillac or a Lincoln they are good quality tools but they are kind of pricy. Snap-On Tools are like a Tesla they are expensive and everyone likes them.

  • Stay away from screwdrivers with fixed heads. After a little use, the heads will start to round out and the screwdriver will not hold the screw tightly. You're better off getting a screwdriver handle base that accepts 1/4 inch bits. That way, you can buy a box of bits and replace your rounded bits as soon as possible with a brand new bit.

  • At Estate sales you can very often find tools really inexpensive . I have bought Craftsman as well as Proto , Snap On and other expensive brands . The sales in my area are usually run by women who don’t know much about tools so they are generally underpriced .

  • The common beginner tools I think he should've added in are: 1. Vice grips! At minimum have a large and small pair but the more types of vice grip pliers you have the better! 2.Mutiple types of hammers and a few pry bars along with a leverage stick (a giant piece of pipe), you're going to need a rubber mallet, its good for persuading something out of its 30 year grave without breaking, bending or denting it, and yes you WILL use a sledge hammer (in rare cases) I'd have one just in case (they're fairly inexpensive) 3. At least one good quality drill again the more you have the better 4. A magnet stick or magnet rope/EIDMFSRS or Emergency I Dropped My Fucking Shit Retrieval System, you can make these yourself have a magnet on a skinny stick and a small magnet on a rope for those most annoying and unfourtantly screw/washer falls and tumbles 5. a multi size set of adjustable crescent wrenches 6. adapters for everything! To make reaching tight spaces not a total day crusher 7. for older cars and vehicles have a couple stripped bold and screw extractors 8. definitely work your way towards an good air system, remember to achieve a vast collection of the basics but later in your mechanic journey air tools will make your life and tasks a lot easier. Such as impacts, air ratchets, air hammers, and more. 9. A large growing variety in power drill bits and adapters. (I find the socket adapters for a drill are very handy) Don't forget, with a basic mechanics arsenals nothing in a project can stop you, if you are truly a passionate mechanic starting with basic tools and using what you have to your best abilities without being annoyed at not having this or that tool means you will work your way up through the basics! Good Luck!

  • get adequate tools and yiu are unlikely to break one..... top notch tools are for a pro. Cheap tools are for casual guys fixing a car with not much stress applied. Buy cheap and used if possible! Look at shops selling used stuff and make a low offer and you can always pay them a bit more. Used and dirty and quality tools are cheap and easy to buy! Tip: Craftsman from the old days were very good steel!
