The new tool thread

No this isn't a thread about @Yorkshire Pudding

I liked the idea of a thread where you can dump your most recent tool purchase and description , with a picture and a link to where you got it to help others.

If you're like me you have a new tool/something to help out in the garage almost weekly.

First one for me which I got last week after reviewing some punches was this set:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07DVK2QVB/?tag=cliospnet01-21

The quality is excellent for the price, I'm really happy with the purchase. All my other punches were tapered so this is spot on for stubborn bolts in suspension arms etc



Second one to get the ball rolling were some nice strong gloves as I am sick to death of ripping nitrile gloves.
These are so far fantastic, very thin for a tactile feel but not easily rippable

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01MU9MGYF/?tag=cliospnet01-21

I am a medium in gloves so got the small for a tight feel and they are perfect. @Louis got some on my recommendation and likes them too.

I'll be honest, they all have pretty much the same design mate - the ends are always hardened so have the two colour scheme regardless. The reason why I chose the ones I linked was based on many reviews that said they spent all day with others and the ends began to mushroom over but found the s and r ones to not do so.

Proof will be in the pudding

Yeah similar to what I thought with mine. I've had decent results with Bergen taps, so thought I'd go with these.

They've had a fair old hit with a 3lb lump hammer and seem to be holding up.

Just bought 24 for myself cause I’m sick of ripping holes in the ones I’m using every time I nip them

Thanks for the demonstration that you can bend your fingers while wearing them, I was worried then that you wouldn't be able to move your hand properly when you had them on.

I'll stick to my ribbed choice thank you very much.
Well the previous ones I had were like wearing @Louis ' sock that he keeps under his bed

Yeah they feel great! Going to use them tonight got some general garage work. Wonder if theyll go in the washing machine? Probably split them before then tbh.

My punches were the cheapest set from screwfix, are great!

Good question mate, I think on a cold wash they'd be spot on
I'd suggest a cold hand wash / job

Ooooh tools!

I bought one of these. Very useful.


This warms my cockles in the cold winters, and to be fair doesnt condensate too badly


GREAT welder


Equally awesome plasma cutter, SO much fun. You need a hefty compressor to keep up mind.


I have this oil filter socket set, these are bloody brilliant for tight oil filters.

I could keep going for quite a while, I like to fill my man cave with kit :)

Bought some MAC RBRT Hex sockets the other day, don’t have a dealer here but managed to track one down who kindly mail ordered them. Worth a look if you’re in the trade. Saves much grief as Hex bolts can be a pain when people have partially rounded or the stubborn drop link hex when you’ve got to just change a shock and keep the link.


Also, anyone that loves the classic little Sanp on flat blade orange handle screwdriver will love the Mac mini pry bars. We all use those little screwdrivers for prising stuff we shouldn’t but MAC do a two piece mini pry bar set (straight and curved) that are the same size as the small snap on drivers, pretty cool. They’re made out of hardened blackened steel so strong to pry with.

Which part do you need clarification on?

Do you rent the place or not?
Well judging by the fact that you replied to this post earlier about me and the Mrs soon to be buying our first place it would appear you already know the answer to the question you're already asking? I've highlighted it for you to make it a bit easier for you to understand as you're clearly lacking a chromosome if you've already found out that answer a smidge over a few hours ago

I was just impressed that someone yet to buy their own home could feel superior over those who already have done.

I am very sorry that you took it that way when it was just a little joke. Absolutely no superiority here.

I think you need to take a step back and look at the majority of your posts which are 95% trolling others (I don't take offense at all) but it made me laugh that when someone gives a bit back to you you take the hump and stoop to very strange levels.

Anyway ill let you get back to your fritzel den 😂
