|Harbor Freight tools are adequate.|
I agree with Ronin's descriptions. I have some of all in my tool boxes. Stick with these brands. Avoid most no-name brands, but I've had good luck with Pep-Boys sockets, as Craftsman does not offer their 6 point 1/2" drive deep sockets anymore.....
For the price, some of Harbor Freight tools are adequate. i.e. their LOOOOOOONG extensions come in handy the few times needed.
Suggestion, get the largest tool box you can, as organized tools are MUCH easier to find....
Gearwrench makes great ratcheting box wrenches.
|Any recommendations on a specific Torque wrench? Up until now I've been winging it.|
|+1 on Craftsman, my big chest in the garage is loaded with their stuff, and you can't beat their "don't ask" warranty when you break shit trying to make a improvised breaker bar out of a 3/8" ratchet and a 6 foot hunk of fence post I've also got a lot of oddball stuff from harbor freight, and haven't run across a problem yet. Went there a couple weeks back and spent about $100 bucks on 3 jaw pullers, bearing separators, and other stuff I don't use too often. For the money, their tools are about the best bang for the buck when you're not talking everyday, heavy duty use. Picked up a 3 ton garage jack and trans adaptor from them for about $120 when I was changing the cluth on my F250, and seems to work just as well as my Craftsman jack that cost 3X as much!!!|
