The best inexpensive car tool kit
3 OMBRA OMT94S
This set of tools contains quite standard 94 items: extension cords, ratchets and heads for them for 1/2 and 1/4 inches, hexagons, as well as a screwdriver with a set of bits for a special and uncommon 5/16 square. The problem is that the quality of items directly reflects the price. Under a load that a more reliable tool could easily withstand, bits and hexagons begin to bend and crack.
As a result, the tools in the suitcase can be useful for assembling and disassembling fasteners on new cars that have not had time to rust. Old fasteners that require a breakdown may not be able to do it.
- good equipment, despite the lack of open-end wrenches;
- price available to the consumer;

Manufacturers decided to replace about nineteen sockets with nine combination wrenches from 8 to 22 millimeters. This is a useful replacement, since open-end wrenches are often so lacking in standard inexpensive sets. The bits, like those of the contenders, are adapted to the 5/16 square, but they inspire more confidence in terms of quality. The metal coating is matte, it does not show small cracks and scratches, as on a chrome-plated instrument. The set cannot be called professional, but it is ideal for an advanced car enthusiast.
