BGS 2292 Socket Spanner Set 192 pieces

The main asset in the tool arsenal for a car/bike enthusiast. This has everything you might want and need.

My rating: 10/10

Hilka 2 Ton Trolley Jack Kit

It does the job, but you can see why it has sa low price. Overall you get a Jack that can lift a car, 2 stands, 2 wheel stoppers and a helpful case to fit them all in.

My rating 6/10.

Planning to upgrade with something in the 100~150£ price range.

Silverline Torque Wrench 1/2″ Drive 28-210 Nm

If you want to make sure you respect factory recommended torque settings, this type of tool should not be missing/neglected.

Has a very good price, and good precision.

My rating: 9/10

BGS Torque Wrench 3/8″ 7-105 nm

If you want to make sure you respect factory recommended torque settings, this type of tool should not be missing/neglected.

It is a BGS product …

My rating: 9/10

WD-40 600ml Aerosol

The WD-40 cleans grease and grime as well as dissolving adhesives, allowing the easy removal of labels and stickers. Use WD-40 to protect metal surfaces against moisture and other corrosive elements and lubricate all moving parts. It can also be used to penetrate rusted or frozen metal parts for easier removal.

My rating 10/10.

Holts LOYHT4YA Tyreweld, 500 ml

Because my car has only a compressor, no spare tyre, I have this product.

It should: “seal and inflate punctured tyres immediately allowing you to finish your journey. The water based latex formula does not damage the tyre and can easily be washed out by using warm water prior to the tyre being repaired.”

Never had the chance to use it.
I am considering having 2 cans in my car.

Silverline Magswitch Magnetic Pick-Up Tool

If you dropped something in a tight space, this tool will make your day.
It has a simple design, and the magnet is small so you can fit it in many places.

Don’t waist money on the bulky pick-up tools that have lights.

My rating 10/10.

Silverline Flexible Pick Up Tool

If you dropped something in a tight space, and you can’t pick it up with the magnetic tool this is your second option.
It has a simple design, low cost and it can “save you” from a F_*-ed-up day.

My rating 10/10.

Silverline Magnetic Parts Dish 150 mm

Useful for cleaning parts and helps in making sure you don’t lose screws/bolts/nuts.

It isn’t a must have but it is something that helps. It is more of an gadget than a necessity.

My rating 10/10.

Laser Oil Drain Pan 6 Litre

Not that much to say.
Oil/Liquid drain pan. You can use it for the oil changes, for coolant removal, cleaning parts with different solvents.

My rating 10/10.

DeWalt DCK211D2T 10.8V Li-ion Cordless Compact Drill Driver and Impact Driver

I have bought this kit on 29 Nov 2016. I use the drill with its driver function for work daily in rebuilding cars.
Works very good. Batteries are also very good.

The impact is nice when you get stubborn bolts.
All in all a very useful kit.

Has better in hand feeling than the Milwaukee or the SNAP-ON

My rating 10/10. Definitely would buy again.
