Favourite tools

Postby John&Luke » Wed Jan 13, 2021 12:22 am

Hi all, thought I would share my 3 most used tools from the Sealey cordless tool range.

The thing I like about this range is the small size and the fact it’s design for the automotive industry.

I purchase a drill, impact driver and wrench some time ago and most recently added a grinder to my collection.

The first pic is the ratchet wrench which comes in so useful for undoing and tighten nuts and bolts. Ok it’s not got massive torque but takes the grind out of process.

The second pic is the grinder. The grinder is ace, small light and controllable. It uses small 3” discs so ideal for tight spots. Again ideal for cutting bodywork and 1 - 1.5mm sheet. I purchase the bigger 4amp hour battery for the grinder.

Third pic is the grinder and drill, drill has a 10mm Chuck. The bare tools range from ÂŁ40 -ÂŁ70.

Well worth thinking about IMO.

A grinder is a must for anyone taking up the challenge to attack these roadsters, even more so is a cordless grinder, mine gets over used which is a dewalt, I like the sealey tools they are good value and they last, i have a good selection of sealey tools in my kits for attack.

Sealey have come on a lot recently.

I did a while back buy a Sealey impact driver, great for a year then the battery gave up. Now binned sorry recycled.

I have moved into Milwaukee cordless tools, ratchet, impact driver and drill.

As for grinders, I have a selection from corded to cordless to air.

I have more tools than actual ability to use them all according to the wife.
