Default Help Me Build A Tool Kit For My Garage

Hey guys, I need a small and efficient tool kit for myself. Here's a small list that I have made for purchase from Wuerth. Any other inputs are welcome:

What else do you guys suggest I buy? A hydraulic jack and 2 pairs of tripods are also on the shopping list. What I intend to do in future is service my car myself. Basic stuff like oil change, coolant replacement, brake pad replacements etc.

wire cutters/ cutting pliers , hammer (forget it if you already have one) some more hand tools better go through the entire online catalog to make sure you don't miss any thing

Don't forget to invest in some protective clothing

1) A good spark plug spanner.
2) A good impact screw driver.
3) A good torque wrench (remember to get one in the range of use to you).
4) Small short flat head and star head screw drivers. To use in tight areas.
5) Big long ordinary flat head and star head screw drivers (magnetised would be better)
6) Pliers - ordinary and nose.
7) Wire stripper.
8) Medium size hammer and mallet.
9) A set of allen keys.
10) A telescopic magnetic nut & bolt retriever.
11) An oil can.
12) WD40
13) An oil tray of the required capacity.
14) An overkill but nice to have - A good compression gauge with the right adapter.

Since you have the wrenches and the brushes I'm not listing them. But you might want to buy some extension rod for your box kit if the situation needs a bit of extra leverage.

Nice stuff you bought from Wurth
