There are some good tools there and they also sell some very low end stuff.

I agree on the compressor, buy a 20 gallon, but look at the recovery rates. You will want soemthing that has good recovery.

Skip the 1/2" air ratchet..it'* slow and has little torque. Use an air gun for 1/2" stuff. Call me tonight and I'll check if I have any coupons from them and forward them to you.

On the air gun.. go for 500lbs of torque. It'* important taking HB bolts off.

I'm not a fan of the wobble extensions. You can slip or wobble when you need to a good connection. The longer an extension or the more play in it..the more torque you will lose between the gun and the bolt.

PS..

I wouldn't pull the motor in your car. If you are considering a cam, do it in the car. Jack stands and a jack are all you will need.

Plus, I've found that their 6 ton jack stands are a better height to use for our cars and are still very reasonable.

I also agree that you should go with a 500 ft/lb air gun. While something less may work for some things, you'll soon enough find you want more torque. Spend the money once, IMO.

Definitely go for the big tank, and make sure you get a fast pump. Grinders and other tools can drain a tank almost instantly if you don't have enough capacity.

While you're at it, make sure you make a list of weird types and sizes of tools you haven't been able to find for other projects. It'* a good thing to carry with you any time you go to a hardware store. You never know when you'll find something.
