Default I'm like a little boy on Christmas morning!

After I sold the supercharger I had for $150, I sat here thinking to myself, "Self, what can I buy for $150 that I REALLY need?" Well, I bought this!

$159.99 At Sears. 190pc Mechanics tool set. I figured it was tinme to replace my old, worn out hand-me-down tools. The first time we went and bought a set, it had a bag of sockets missing which kinda peed me off, but we exchanged it and now all is good.

Very nice! Are they now actually putting hinges on the cases rather than just the thin plastic that doesn't last very long? Some of my Craftsman hand tools are coming up on 40 years old!

Yeah I like that the case actually has hinges, because I plan to keep the tools in the case rather than getting a toolbox.

And ratcheting wrenches are next on my list, too procey to buy at the time.
