Well, I finally did it, I was wondering around in a local mall (left the cruiser behind so as not to reinforce the mall cruiser myth) and went into a Snap-on store (interesting concept). I left with a very nice ratcheting screw driver (standard size with two extensions and five bits) that was on sale (~US$55) - overall a lovely piece of equipment. It has a wonderful action, very fine, a nice large handle with a perfect fit for my hand and feels very well made (eg the extensions seem to weight as much as my usual screw drivers). I could see investing in some other tools over time, but not until I get a garage where I can do more of my own work I also have a question - there is a Sears in this mall and in the discount bin I managed to buy a 3/4" breaker bar (~30") for ~US$25. Given that it was so cheap, I though I would leave it in the truck for (1) removing lug nuts (2) to have for using with the 54mm hub socket for 80s (and for added security this thing weighs a TON). As I pondered this last night, I wondered if I should keep it, or just buy a 1/2" breaker bar - thoughts?
