    A worker is only as good as their tools, and there are certain pieces you simply cannot go without in the auto repair industry. Here are a list of the basic auto repair tools that will be absolutely invaluable to even the most experienced mechanic.

    Jack/jack stands

    There are several ways to get an auto-mobile off of the ground, though a lot of the more inexpensive options require you to sacrifice your safety. With over a ton of metal balancing precariously over your head, you will never regret purchasing a jack and stands to avoid potential catastrophe.

    Screwdrivers, wrenches, and ratchets

    No matter the job, it’s near impossible to get by without some form of tightening/loosening tool. Be sure to invest in a variety of lengths to avoid the frustration of having to work in a tight space with a screwdriver as long as your arm.

    Hammer and rubber mallet

    A hammer is a timeless tool – quite possibly one of the first created. It’s fantastic at what it does, and is perfectly complimented by a rubber mallet for the times when you need to be wary of leaving scratches on the car you are working on.
