BASIC HAND TOOLS
Many of the procedures in this manual can be carried out with simple hand tools and test equipment familiar to the average home mechanic.
Keep tools clean and organized in a tool box. After using a tool, wipte off dirt and grease with a clean cloth and return the tool to its correct place.
High quality tools are essential; they are also more economical in the long run. Stay away from the advertised specials featured at some stores. They are usually made of inferior materials and are thick, heavy and clumsy. Their rough finish makes them difficult to clean and they usually do not last very long.
Quality tools are made of alloy steel and are heat treated for greater strength. They are lighter and better balanced that poorly made ones. Their surface is smooth, making them a pleasure to work with and easy to clean.
The initial cost of quality tools may be more, but they are less expensive in the long run.
