    Tool Sets

    Recommendations as far as brands go?...I was thinking of getting a Huskie Set...Lifetime warranty, 300 piece set for like $300 on sale (i think) at home depot?...

    I buy Craftman from Sears. They have a lifetime warranty too, and are good quality. They're not cheap, but I think they're definitely worth the money.

      Husky tools have come a long way, but I don't like the Black Chome finish. Its easy enough to loose a bright chrome tool let alone a black one.

          so long as they are lifetime warranty and from a retailer you can find easily for replacements, I wouldn't worry too much about the brand.

            exactly. I only buy Craftsman because there is a sears 5 mins. from me, and if a tool breaks I just take it there, and they give me a replacement on the spot, no questions asked. Unless you have a bunch of money to afford Mac or Snap-on, just go with Craftsman or something with the same warranty.

              I have a nabor (SP.) who has a snap-on masters set. I use only them.

                  He is the head machanic at toyota. That is where I did my 5spd swap. We did a tranny swap in 4.5hrs. When I say tranny swap, I mean I pulled it in as a automatic, and pulled it out as a 5spd. (Ofcorse (sp.) We had Bluepoint and snapon inpact tools, 2 post lift, all the jacks and whatnot.)

                        good for putting in all those JDM parts.

                        if they break, you can just go to the JDM sears and they'll give you a new one.

                          That's not that impressive. I know DSM guys who can drop their transmissions in under 30 min with hand tools and floor jacks. Clutch changes on a 4WD in less than an hour.

                            Yea, they can do it so fast because they have to do it so often, because they break down so much. I will still be driving while they work on their cars.

                                  Pat, Schu, and I did it in about 4 hours last night. It would have been easier on My or Schu's car with the PR mounts though I think.

                                    I have factory mounts, and that 4.5 hours includes doing all the wiring, installing the linkage, removing the auto crap, ect, ect. a whole auto-5spd conversion in 4.5hrs. Drove in as a automatic, and drove out as a 5spd. Thats with frozen bolts and no WD-40.

                                            Thanks, I still need to do 1 thing. A new bolt in my LCA. It snaped in two taking it out.

                                              craftsmen and the like are great for the home mechanic. i beat on my snap ons everyday and i have to replace sockets like crazy. i call the snap on guy, and hes there within a few hours. its worth it to your average honda tech where flat rate pay is an issue. also, four hours for a 5spd swap is really good, it took me about 3 just to pull the parts out of a 4g accord.
