Buying new tools is great, but we know it’s not in the budget for everyone to drop $200-$500 for a new tool set. One way to save money on good handtools is visiting yard and estate sales as well as pawnshops. We’ve come home with countless $1 and $2 wrenches and pliers from weekend sales. Used handtools, especially wrenches and sockets, often have plenty of life left, particularly those made in the USA. Plus, you may not need both inch and metric tools, as most late-model and import vehicles are all metric.
