    Thank you for pointing out that a Craftsman toolset is known for its organization and comes with a manual on how to use the tools. My brother has been thinking about going to school to become a mechanic. I assume that he would need a heavy toolbox to keep his cool tools in.

    When you’re working in areas like engine compartments, sometimes you just can’t get your socket into the tight places. That’s where the ratchet extender comes in handy. Slap your socket onto one end of the extension tool and attach your ratchet to the other end. Then loosen or tighten the “unreachable” bolt.
