Sears has good starter kits for mechanics.

Sears is good place to start. When you're ready for the good stuff, take the Fisher-Price tools home and get ready to sign your life away to Mac or Snap-on. Always good to keep some cheap stuff on hand for altering or abusing when needed.

Again, we're talking hand tools here, Peter. Why are you overselling Peterson Cat so much?? Not relevant to the Mechanics Hub, right Toolchick?

i'm going to be buying some tools for school from snap on. I think the snap on boxes cost way too much though.

Be careful, a cheap box won't handle years of rolling around on rough shop floors loaded with weight.

If ya treat it right, the Snap-on or Mac box will take the abuse. I've had the Snap-on heavy duty road chest bouncing around in service trucks and pickups for 15 years now and still works great! You'd NEVER get that out of a cheap box.

Look into Lista Boxes and Extreme boxes. They are built like Sherman Tanks and cost less than tool truck boxes.
