Well, I figured out what my girlfriend wants more than anything this
Christmas. She wants her OWN set of tools! (Damn, I love this woman! 8>))
So I decided that I will get her a good beginner set of tools and tool box
for her. Only problem is that I don't have any real idea where to start.
I've put my set together over the years and I don't know what to look for
in a beginner set.
Here is the background. This summer, I got her a motorcycle. It was a
project bike that we were both working on. She did clutch work, carbs, and
other light stuff. This winter, she wants to do a complete rebuild. Now,
I've got all the tools she'll need, but she wants her own set (I can't
argue with that!)
So, I wanted to know just what to look for in a "starter set"
First off, I want quality. Snap-on and Mac are out for price reasons (I
can't afford to pay those prices for a "duplicate set" of tools)
Craftsman was my first choice, but a trip to the local Home Depot and I see
that they now carry a "lifetime guarantee brand" of tools. I've been
impressed with the quality of them also. Plus, HD is much easy to replace
something than Sears around here.
So, to the questions...
1- is the HD stuff worth it?
2-What should a "starter" kit contain?
3-what type of tool box should I get? (1 piece carry style)
Thanks in advance for the help. I'm pretty psyched that I found someone
who loves tools as much as I do!
