Tools

What kind of tools are you guys using out there, and why?

I use mainly craftsman, because I like the fact that if I do break something I can go ahead and take it back to sears without any issues.

I am going to start buying Kobalt tools because Lowes gives veterans a 10% military discount everyday for anything bought there. Kobalt also has a lifetime warranty on their hand tools as well! Lifetime warranty and save some cash? Count me in!

My latest tool additions!

whatever is cheapest. So mostly Craftsman. I have some Kobalt, been great as well.
I'm aware that Snap-on, MAC ect are far better, but I just don't care and I lose shit constantly anyway.

Is that an air compressor for air tools? Sweet!

Snap-on is expensive unless you can find a great deal on used stuff.

If you need a torque wrench, CDI is basically the same as SNAP-ON

I just use Harbor Freight tools, they're cheap and I've never had anything break.

That's a nice compressor! Did you have to hard wire it yourself?

I just bought a 3 gallon Snap-On compressor. Didn't want to spend that muc on the bigger ones and it flows enough air for small bursts on my impact. I was going to go with electrical impact but I thought why not spend another $100 and get a setup that will give more torque and won't need to "recharge". I went with IR for the impact because that's what was recommended and amazon had a good deal on it. It's been a GREAT combo.

For hand tools I've just been buying what I need from O'reillys. I would go to seats but it's farther and even though I don't mind the mall, I would rather avoid it if I can.

Yeah I did it for him. Double-pole 20A (240V) with 12 wire. Max draw listed was 15.07 amps @240V but I went slightly bigger because why not. He needed the bigger compressor because he sandblasts a lot of shit and the smaller compressor he had just wouldn't keep up.

Tools

Power tools, impact wrench, impact driver, drill, etc. are all craftsmen.

For socket tools, i have ingersoll rand, stanley, craftsmen, and kobalt. I also have some gear wrench.

My jack, jack stands, breaker bar, rubber mallet, etc. types of tools are harbor freight.
