We’ve put together our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide For The Part-Time Fixer to help you pick out the perfect present that is sure to be a hit.
Backpack Tool Bag
Keep your tools within reach with this Carlyle Tools heavy-duty backpack featuring a waterproof hard bottom base for extreme durability and padded adjustable shoulder straps for added comfort. Great for taking your tools on a road trip, a buddy’s garage for a wrenching session, or a day at the track. It even includes a removable 48 pocket tool organizer to keep things tidy.
BBQ Grill Tool Set
Hand tools come in all shapes and sizes, who says they have to be used on cars? This BBQ grill tool set features handles that match the Carlyle tool line. It includes a spatula with decorative hex-bolt cutout, tongs, and long reach fork. Each tool is construction from 380 stainless steel.
You can never have enough screwdrivers, especially when they are well organized like this screwdriver set. It includes a huge assortment of driver bits, multiple sizes of slotted and Phillips head screwdrivers, previsions screwdrivers, offset screwdrivers, even nut drivers. This set can handle pretty much any job around the garage or house. Plus the compact storage rack keeps everything organized between projects.
Ratcheting Wrench Set
Ratcheting wrenches are an absolute must-have for the serious home mechanic. Sometimes a ratchet and socket just won’t fit in a cramped engine bay, which is where the ratcheting wrench shines. The open end makes it easy to break fasteners loose, while the ratcheting closed end makes quick work of the job. This 20-piece set includes both SAE and metric wrenches in the most popular sizes.
DeWalt Professional Drilling/Driving Set
One of the best accessories for a power drill or impact wrench is a good assortment of bits. This 80-piece drilling/driving set can handle almost any project that comes up around the garage or home. Included are black oxide drill bits, screwdriver bits, nut setters, socket adapters, a magnetic screw guide, magnetic tray, all in a handy project caddy that features a handy storage compartment.
Digital Tire Inflator
Most home mechanics have a compressor, but the right accessories can make it shine. This digital tire inflator makes filling tires quickly and accurately a breeze. The easy to read backlit LED means quick pit stops day or night. It is also nitrogen compatible for performance minded drivers.
Moving all your tools and supplies around the shop can be a pain, especially if a project is on the complicated side. This rolling service cart is the perfect place to not only hold tools, but it can also double as a mobile work surface. The lower level is great for tools and supplies. High impact Polypropylene construction won’t chip, rust or dent. It rolls easily on four 4″ x 1″ swivel casters.
