While there may be all kinds of different automotive technician jobs these days, every mechanic needs certain hand tools to ensure they can do their job correctly.
Without them, many common repairs would be nearly impossible. However, if your tools aren’t properly maintained, common repairs will be just as difficult and you’ll need to spend a lot of money to replace or fix them.
There’s also the question of safety. Many tools will become dangerous if they’re not given the maintenance they need.
