One small suggestion don't use the ratchet on load ,means to loosen & tighten the first round of thread .

Also check for the Jeeps wheel check nut spanner ( by sample of check nut ) . But take care as not to over tighten

My ratchet is nearly 40 years old and I have been tightening and untightening with no apparent damage to it. But that may because in those days you got only "professional" grade tools and not hobby grade. So may be you are right in cautioning as a lighter material may give way under large torque. (I recently checked the prices and the difference between two grades was Rs.300 for the hobby one and nearly Rs.1200/ for professional one!)

Another suggestion. Some old cars have SAE nuts and bolts, so test the fit of the spanner before using it, else you will round the nut/bolt head off. That is why when I was using the tools actively in early seventies, I had to get both metric as well as SAE sizes, and a few whitworth at the smaller end. To complicate the matter more, some of the smaller sizes came with British standard. To give an example (all sizes in mm)
metric - 10,11,12,13
SAE - 9.73,11.13,12.5
Whitworth - 8.64,11.3,13.3

So with a full hex spanner you can still work, but a bi-hex will slip and round the nut off!

Here is a list of thread sizes and corresponding spanner opening I found on the net.

This is my small collection.

Whenever I need, I buy them and collect.

As I am staying In Mumbai I don't have much space to keep tools otherwise I would have Small welding machine, Compressor, big Spray Gun Etc.( I have a imported pen spray gun)

After getting Jeep and inspired by Guru Sudarshanji I will add more stuff in my collection.

You will not get Hex ring spanners easily. What I meant that for smaller sizes get SAE (American) and Whitworth (British) sizes if you can. A good place is the automobile junk market where a lot of old, but excellent quality tolls are available for a song.

Practice ( using them ) will make you perfect

@ Salil & Sanjay I think you first go for hand tools , start working with them , if you feel you can then everything is available & can be bought .

What I have. I use these to tinker around with everything at home, the bike, bicycles, car etc. I prefer to do the plumbing, electrical work etc. at home, myself.

I also have a kit with some 24 odd screw driver heads - used for toys and other small things.

I plan to get a few more tools soon. I keep the tools I have, in my car, most of the time.

Found a hand tools manufacturer in Dombivili. They manufacture extensive range of hand tools. Could the local members find where they retail them?

i have been lucky to be the owner of pretty much all the tools mentioned here , Although you guys might want to add IMPACT SCREWDRIVERS and JACK STANDS to the list of important tools. i also own an air compressor, spray gun, an analog dwell, tacho meter, timing light , denting hammers and dollies, acetylene welding equipment in addition to most of the tools mentioned above.
the welding equipment costed around 6-7k (acetylene generator was new and oxygen cyl second hand), the compressor was either 3 or 5 k(second hand but refurbished). Jack stands were 300 for 2, impact screw driver was around 700.

Another important tool i am planning to buy is a torque wrench. and i was planning to make a compression tester with a cut spark plug a rubber pipe and a pressure meter

Impressive collection of garage tools. Im wondering how any of them are specifically "Off Road" tools. These are tools used in any car or vehicle. Kindly elaborate on your offroad specific tools please as the thread says. Sorry not meaning to be a party pooper, just that the threads going elsewhere, though im loving every bit, all the pics put here.
