Next semester is going to be different; I will be driving to college instead of flying. I've always been able to do my own repairs, saving me a lot of money in the process. The thing is, I have access to a well stocked home garage, complete with a vast array of tools that my household has acquired over the years. Obviously none of this will be available to me out there, 600+ miles away from home. So I've decided to build myself a toolkit to allow me to do basic repairs/maintenance as I might need it. Below is a list of the things I've acquired. If there seems to be something that I would definitely use for auto repair, please comment.
99-piece socket and metric and imperial wrench set; sockets come in 3/8" and 1/4" drive, and an extension is included.
5/8" spark plug removal socket.
Two channellocks (Channellock 430)
Wire stripper/crimper/cutter (Channellock 908)
Set of medium-length phillips and flathead screwdriver.
Needle nose plier.
Two vise grips; large and small.
SAE and Metric allen wrench set, up to 10mm and 3/8" respectively.
Two adjustable wrenches, 10" and 4".
Oil filter wrench
Digital calipers (water proof )
Set of flathead and phillips precision screwdrivers.
And a tool box to put it all in.
