Magna Caddy by MTS, Mechanic’s Time Savers I have many of these for different socket sets. They help keep me organized.
Snap-on 1/4-Drive Impact Swivel Sockets I keep my 1/4, 7 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm, 13 mm, 14 mm and 15 mm in a MTS 385 to keep them handy.
Stanley 3/8-Drive Rotator Ratchet It gives the ability to advance.
GearWrench Flex Combination Ratcheting Wrench Set Metric I use these wrenches about 80% of the time, when a wrench is needed.
A 10” Piece of 3/8 id Goodyear Air Hose as a Spark Plug Starter I use it every time I install spark plugs. You can feel how the plug is going better and it will slip if it’s not going straight.
