    I'm brainstorming what other inexpensive tools I should add to have a well rounded tool collection to take on anything.

          Cleaner brush should be a plastic housing not metal, for obvious reasons. Also, small ratchet for side terminal batteries.

            Why? The battery is disconnected for obvious reasons while cleaning.

                  I bought the plastic one off the snap on truck about 3 years ago. $12. Canadian.
                  Turn it in only the one direction, should last a long time.

                  I just bought a plastic one three weeks ago, sturdy design. I did have a metal one I bought in the 70’s and lost it recently or misplaced it.

                  I have had both. Like TJ said they last a long tone if used only in one direction.

                      Corbin clamp pliers. Good choice! Those blue handles tell me they are Channellock, a quality brand.

                        Wait till you have to do your next job, because now you'll need another new tool you don't already have. Just when you thought you had every tool.

                          I was a MAC Dealer for 28 years and collected lot of tools I liked or thought I needed after retiring. I kept a lot back when I cashed in but I have still made trips to the store or tool truck for something I forgot to keep. Metric hex drivers was my last purchase. :BangHead::BangHead::BangHead:

                          this came in real handy when a water pump bolt broke.

                            I'm a tool junky. Got more than I can ever use.
                            How about the tool you bought and used once ? I had Chevy Vega rear brake spring tool in my box for 40+ years.Used them once.Gave them a pitch a few years back.
                            The worst is when you loan a tool and never see it again !

                                      l purged my box of anything not used in five years and boxed them up on the shelf. Amazing how many crap wrenches I have heated and bent for whatever it was!
