Re: Building a basic hand-tool kit!

Depending on the type of work you are planning, you can probably omit 1/2" ratchets & sockets. Ive rebuilt engines, axles and rearends on 3/8. Is 1/2" easier?

It's expensive to build new dies for paintballs , Standard calibers are ~.68, followed by .50 and then .40 (blow gun). more cost effective to use the standard machines and just use a new fill agent. Then you cost is just materials and time on the machine. A lot of paintba...

Other rounds include dye both visible and UV, solid rounds, and others. Cost keeps them out of most peoples hands, since they ar...
