    OUTSTANDING STARTER KIT FOR DIY’ERS, August 11, 2014

    This hefty 19-pound, 210-piece tool kit is not one you’d keep in your ATV or glove compartment. And nothing can ever replace the classic catch-all drawer in the kitchen or bathroom with the multi-screwdriver, pliers and a handful of loose nails and screws floating around.

    And most people don’t need a set of socket wrenches in their bathroom but I’ve known a couple of guys who do.

    When this 3-paneled suitcase is opened out, it measures 33-inches wide and 18 1/2-inches high. When closed, it measures 17 1/2-inches high and 16-inches wide and 4-inches thick. It contains most of the tools I’d consider necessary for a basic starter tool kit for the garage or workshop except a small hammer.

    The largest sockets are 17-mm and 13/16.

    Many lawnmowers use 15/16 blade bolts. Mine do.

    I’ve been collecting tools since I bought my first house in 1972 and have inherited two large sets since. Even so, it seems that every week I find a need for a specialized tool I don’t have.

    Since a small hammer was about the only basic tool missing in this kit, I ordered the MAXCRAFT 60626 8-oz. Stubby Claw Hammer from Amazon.

    One thing I’ve learned is that most cheap hand tools today do not last. They are dollar-store trinkets made in China.

    I had a dollar-store hammer for driving small finishing nails and hanging honey-do items. I was softly driving a pin-sized nail when the hammer head came UNGLUED from the thin tubular metal handle and nearly nailed a cat. If that had happened, I would have been next in line.

    Such cheap tools are over priced at a dollar…and dangerous.

    If you start out buying quality hand tools like Stanley, which I do, they will last you a lifetime and you can leave them in your will.

    The only problem I had with this kit was two of the 3/16 shank screwdrivers kept falling out of the molded case when it was closed and being moved around.

    Molded plastic cases are notorious for this problem.

    The solution is simple.

    Since the screwdriver shanks were 3/16, I cut pieces of 3/16 heat shrink tubing about 1.5 inches long and slid it on the shanks near the handle and heated it. The screwdrivers now stay firmly in place inside the case.

    I’ve used this method on all sorts of hand tools of varying sizes that come in molded cases and it does not hinder the function of the tool.

    Heat shrink tubing only costs about $4.00 for a 127-piece assortment. An 8-foot roll of almost any size is only $2.00. I keep a good selection on hand.

    For any DIY’er, having the righty tool at the right time in the right place is a challenge.

    And as I’ve said before, the best tool to have when you are on the road or in the field is a cell phone to call for help when none of the tools you have work.

    A crazy amount of tools in a horrible case., August 5, 2014

    Growing up my dad had a similar kit to this. It was probably because he had one that I always thought that having one is part of what makes you dad. I have had a few similar kits over the years, but nothing this comprehensive.

    There seems to be every size too you would need for more home projects.

    Most of the kit is different size ratchet heads and screw head tips. Not only are there different size ratchet heads but also different depths. The screw head tips really impressed me. There is a huge range of both very common and extremely uncommon ones. Personally I will use these with my electric screw driver.

    Now the cons. While it is true that you get a lot of tools for a decent price. They don’t seem to be the highest quality. I think this is perfect for a home handyman kit. But if you need to really do heavy work, there are probably better options out there. Spend a little (to a lot) more and get tools that are made to do serious work.

    Also, the case is a piece of junk. It fits everything and it isn’t too bad to get things in and out. But every time you open it the lock falls out. and you end up spending an extra minute putting it back together so when you close it up to carry it, it will stay closed. My son made the mistake of not doing it right and when he picked it up half the stuff fell out.

    But if you aren’t buying this for the case, and don’t need anything serious heavy duty, this stanley tool kit may be exactly what you are looking for. And don’t forget, Stanley has a lifetime warranty.

    For Those Who Share with Less-Than-Meticulous Tool Users… This Set Saved My Sanity, October 9, 2014

    I had just bought this same set at Home Depot two weeks ago, and now I see it on sale here on Amazon… D’OH!!

    My mother and two brothers (all of whom live nearby) are constantly borrowing tools from my garage (which contains all of my passed-away step-father’s old tools), and no power on Earth will ever get them to put things back the way they should be. I’ve given up all effort and finally bought my own set, this very same Stanley, and store it in my utility closet.

    It has literally every tool and possible size I need for general, small homestead projects and maintenance, each fitting nicely in their “home”. It may sound odd to some, yet wise and wonderful to others, but having this kit to myself has saved my sanity. Muttering angrily in my garage as I searched for a 3/8 socket was not conducive to familial relations. 😛
