If you're like a lot of guys or girls I know, you probably want to start your own collection of tools for your new toolkit, but you're not really sure what you need or how to get it at the best price. I know tools are really a very expensive investment and not only that, but buying cheap tools can lead to much bigger problems in the future if you get in the way of a job.

Of course, the world of tools doesn't have to be incredibly intimidating. A little common sense and good comparison shopping, and you can build a pretty good collection of reliable tools for years to come without having to completely break the bank. Of course, I did not say that it would be done at a low price. You will never want to save on your tools, or you will buy them again when they break and crumble. With that said, here are some of my suggestions.

# 1 - Buy tools at major auto parts stores, but avoid in-house brands. Just look at the biggest brand tools when you shop at these places. Sometimes you can find some real gems.

# 2 - Look at the newspaper for ads. Father's Day sales etc. they are all gold mines.

# 3 - Buy each type of tool in different size sets instead of randomly buying them in different sizes individually.

# 4 - Examine the tools for quality. Check the edges for roughness or smoothness. You are looking for high quality steel with no rough edges.

# 5 - This can save you more than all the other tips combined. When you're in stores, find friendly associates. These are the guys you need to befriend. They know where the specials are, what is closed, what is sold, etc. Many of them are types of cars and they will know what is a quality tool and what is not. Make friends with them, learn their name, they can save you thousands. https://www.priparax.com/product-category/power-and-hand-tools/
