Top 14 toolkits rated by experts

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Women are still confident that a real man should be able to do everything. It turns out that it is not so difficult to meet this requirement if there are many useful tools nearby. For men's hands to receive the high title of “golden”, you need a good set of keys, screwdrivers, bits and other devices. Only inexperienced home craftsmen do not always succeed in choosing the optimal set. Even the most expensive sets are not always able to meet the needs of the modern owner.

Toolbox selection criteria

  1. Everyone knows the saying “the road is a spoon for dinner.” It can be paraphrased something like this: “An expensive tool for a certain job.” If the prestigious set does not contain the necessary key or suitable adapter, then it’s worthless. Therefore, it is important to select tools for a specific field of activity. A motorist most often requires spanners and socket heads, a home craftsman should have everything at hand, from a hammer to a wire cutter, and carpenters appreciate sharp drills.

  2. But even having the right key does not guarantee ultimate success in your work. It may not cope with a bolt or nut, since it does not have sufficient strength. It's better to pay for quality tools with a lifetime warranty than buying the right key separately.

  3. Trying to save money, many novice masters do not look to the future. Cheap sets have a limited range of items at best. It is much worse if they are made from ordinary steel without additional heat and galvanic treatment. Some keys will break in an unequal battle with the bolt, while the other tool will disable the ubiquitous corrosion.

  4. Experts in a narrow field of activity or experienced consumers can understand the usefulness of a particular set of tools. Our roundup features the best toolboxes. When compiling the rating, criteria such as the set of the kit, the conclusions of experts and the opinions of ordinary users were taken into account

JONNESWAY S04H524127S

Rating: 4.9

JONNESWAY S04H524127S

The set also contains the largest number of socket heads (56 pcs.), They come with two ratchets. L-shaped hexagons and torcs, a weighty hammer (0.5 kg), screwdrivers, pliers, short drifts, nippers and pliers can be useful in work.

Rating: 4.8

The set of socket heads (49 pcs.) Looks somewhat more modest in comparison with competitors. The Taiwanese did not consider it necessary to complete the set with a hammer, but in Russia it is an indispensable tool. There is a trick in the lifetime warranty that the manufacturer gives on the tool. For example, for ratchets, the warranty period is limited to 1 year, and bits are generally considered a consumable tool.

But the lack of spanners in the kit is a significant drawback.

Perhaps this set of keys will be enough to repair the suspension of VAZ cars. But taking on more complex repairs, for example, the brake system or the engine, is hardly worth it.

The experts have no particular complaints about the quality of the tool. They are made of alloy metal, the ratchets are equipped with soft pads. Only the manufacturer forgot to apply anti-corrosion protection to the steel. If moisture gets in, rust will quickly appear. This is also confirmed by users in reviews on thematic sites.

disadvantages

  • there is no corrosion protection;

  • meager assortment of keys.

Locksmith or joinery fans have their own set of tools requirements. When working with different materials, you may need drills and bits, socket heads and screwdrivers, a level and a flashlight. Let's try to find a suitable arsenal of tools for them in one case.

Bosch X-Line 100 (2.607.019.330)

Rating: 4.9

Hitachi 705315M

Rating: 4.8

Hitachi 705315M

Despite the greater number of items in the Hitachi 705315M set than Bosch, the experts gave this set only second place. Even when opening the case, unreliable plastic latches are found. Drills are not widely represented. For example, in metal it will be possible to make holes with a thickness of 1.5 to 6.5 mm, and in wood – from 3 to 8. Pen drills are available in three standard sizes (10, 12 and 20 mm).

I could not surpass the eminent German competitor Japanese Hitachi 705315M in quality. Only in the number of sockets and bits the Asian manufacturer is at its best. But the set does not include a level, hex keys and universal joint useful for the joiner and locksmith.

Advantages

  • rich equipment;

  • affordable price;

  • secure fixation of the instrument in the case.

disadvantages

  • weak case latches;

  • poor selection of tools.
