I am in the look out for good quality tools. Reading around gave me a lot of ideas and confidence to do things, for which I need not visit a mechanic. But without the tools I will end up nowhere. So I set out in search of tools today.

Morning was spent in Chandni Bazar, where most of the tools are cheap and raw. They look ok, but I am unsure of quality. The second problem was no specific car tool kit available. There were tools of all shapes and sizes, but I was unsure of which one to pick that would serve all purpose. I did not want to buy all and keep most unused. So decided to give it a miss.

My next stop was a retail store which houses most reputed brands, like STANLEY, BLACK &DECKER, BOSCH, and PowerMAXX. I found a lot of interesting tools. Still did not buy any but made up my mind on which one to go for. I hope this interests all you people.

Stanley and B&D are one and the same...they merged a while back.  There isn't a lot you can do by yourself except tighten some things if they are loose. Your choice of tools will cover that nicely and keep your purchase cost down.

To ensure a better quality tool, make sure they are guaranteed for life.

I have a car which is surprisingly easy to strip down or assemble with normal tools. I was on the look out for DIY tools which will only suffice easy to do work. It will not involve complex operations.

BTW I have selected the wrench kit, spanners of two sets, a multihead screw driver and a tow rope as of now.
