Smallest and best Tool Kit

Posted by hammerscale on August 31, 2013

I can’t count how many things have broken this summer,-  notables are; the air conditioning, lawn tractor, pressure washer, chain saw, and yesterday the washing machine.

I have developed a very basic kit of tools that seemed to be used over and over, as pictured, it leans heavily towards disassembly and cleaning.


A number 2 Phillips, nippers, needle nose, and small wrench for disassembly. Also; a flashlight, knife, cleaning brushes and fine sand paper for polishing contacts, etc. All tucked neatly into an easily replaceable cardboard box.

Not pictured are a nice socket set, nut driver, wire ties, paper towels, and ten thousand other tools standing by to assist.
