    Good "stubby" find.
    And as Husky brand you don't really care if you lose one they are so cheap to replace. Unless of course it happens to be the one you need at the moment.

    I have Husky as my garage set. 20 years old now.

    That is a nice kit to have around but the majority of it's 2.38 pounds of tools don't have many trailside TW repair applications. To each their own of course. My preference is for a slightly more compact 1/4" swivel head ratchet with a deep 10mm and 12mm socket plus a short 1/4" extension. This leaves room for a pair of the appropriate Allen wrenches and a few of the common fasteners to supplement the OEM tool kit. I do carry more, but not stuff that has no TW applications. 1490_1.jpg
    P.S. I appreciate any feedback if this image is not directly viewable or comes back as an invalid attachment. I am getting tempted to no longer attempt to post , not try to view any video or graphic content on this forum. Does the other TW forum have the same ongoing issues? Maybe I should abandon this Forum if graphic issue remains unresolved.

    nice looking set but, you won't be able to use the screw driver bits or 1/2 the sockets. so will it be cheaper to make your own collection?

    A similar tool kit is on my list to get for holidays.
    Happened to go by our local HD, they didn't have this in stock.
    The nearest store in Quebec did indicate it was in stock.
    Didn't feel like driving there.

    Thanks for feedback. Still numerous "Invalid Attachment" notifications while following recently pposted links by forum members. How are we to know if we members are posting "Invalid Links" since Administration seems to be ignoring this issue and it is up to us to tell others to go back and edit or somehow correct previous postings. There are more than several fresh Invalid Attachments posted by others today.
    It really should not be up to us to police each other's attempts to share imagery with our stories...."Hey Dude, your picture came back as "Invalid Attachment" so you need to go back and do this or do that".
