So after years of apartment living where I either paid someone else to do my vehicle maintenance or went to a friends house and borrowed their tools, Im in a house and looking to get started doing it myself again. I have a few of the basic homeowner tools covered (screwdrivers, allen wrenches, vice grips, hammers, cordless drill, multi-meter, dry wall tools etc) but not much that I can use on a car. So Im hoping for suggestions on 1. a good basic set of tools I should be getting and 2. what make and model youd suggest for each type. Uses would be the aforementioned vehicle maintenance as well as general repair and fabrication work. Just thinking of hand tools here, not powered stuff. Heres what Im thinking, although obviously there's a lot more Socket set: English and metric, standard and deep well, 3/8 drive. Combo box and open end wrenches: English and metric, ideally short throw ratcheting on the box end. Channel locks. Wire crimpers. MAPP gas torch.
