    I went down to Lowes today. They are having a Fathers day sale. Lots of cheap tools at Cheap prices. Like I said cheap tools, like Task Force and Kobalt. But for $5 I got a 19 piece tool set. And for like $25 I got a 53 piece Kobalt socket set. Worth $50 Yes I know these tools will break. I have a set of SK's and some snap ons and MAC. But I hate carrying those in my truck. I usually lose them. Plus I keep tools in my bed with just the tonuea cover over it. So if some steals or I lose my cheap tools because I knock over my tool box during a storm. I am not as pissed. Most of my emergency repairs during plowing are made with cheap tools. Just giving the heads up

    You can NEVER have too many tools! I buy stuff that I need, like a set from Big Lot's to get a 16mm deep well. Got the bolt off and now I have 4 deep wells for $10. I see a pile of sockets at a junk store for cheap. I buy some 5.5mm, 6.5mm,7.5mm, 16mm,18mm,20mm,21mm. Yeah you guys think your funny making stuff an off size. Guess what? I have that size! Ford's good at useing off size's.
