Car Tool Kit
Good Day

I looking around for a mini tool kit just to do some DIY on the things I can manage and wanted to find out if this is a good buy or not? Been feeling confident lately to tackle some minor issues here and there.[Image: 46ef36fd-fd68-458f-8bc4-ccd8397a686e_4772514440.jpeg][Image: 7a0f8d9a-f19b-4c3e-a944-bcba5d4300f9_3474246300.jpeg]

I wouldn't even take this set for free. You will become extremely frustrated trying to use these.

RE: Car Tool Kit
I am a fan of socket sets , seems this tool kit is very light on them.

if you get a socket tool set, get the one with a few extenders, L-shape and I shape ones. makes things a lot easier.

I god a grip set from builders a few years ago, I've done some pretty big jobs with them and they're still going strong! Was around R1200

RE: Car Tool Kit
Where did you see this for sale, Crazy Store or Pep Stores?

You dont need to spend millions to get top of the line tools, but do yourself a favour and get something that lasts.

I have systematically been investing in Mastercraft tools as they go on special at Builders and its really not expensive, but the quality it tops. (As an example, I bought 3 pliers on special for R149 few weeks ago)

RE: Car Tool Kit
I had a similar toolset for my first tool box and I only have the hammer left.

Rather get some thing like this TOOL 1, TOOL 2 or buy socket sets (with 1/4 & 1/2 inch ratchets).

RE: Car Tool Kit
I would give those a miss.

Definitely better quality products out there, that won't break the bank.

This won't break the bank, but I think 10NM will break it.

RE: Car Tool Kit
I bought a very good mini socket set from Adendorff a few years back. I do many of my jobs on my BMW's with this little socket set and it always comes in very handy with any small to medium job.

I think the same socket set will set you back the huge wallet killer amount of R150 to R200

RE: Car Tool Kit
I wouldn't do this... as the other guys say.

I am a fan of mastercraft ... especially when they go on sale. I've had nothing break or otherwise have excessive wear/failures.

Adendorff has decent stuff as well on a budget.

RE: Car Tool Kit
Adendorff is where i would start as they have a massive range, great prices and excellent service.. Buy yourself a decent kit to start off with so you wont have to run to the shop everytime you come across an odd size nut or bolt.ect , then you can also add on with other tools you need later on...

RE: Car Tool Kit
I would personally rather start off with something similar to the link below and add to the tool kit when the need arises. There is absolutely nothing worse than working with crap tools.

RE: Car Tool Kit
Also maybe check these two sets out... they both have all the main bits to get you going... I like the 165 piece set.
