28 April Johnson June 10, 2011 at 9:30 AM

I would have to give this set to my husband. He is to proud to go and rent “modern tech” equipment to help with DIY projects. He will get out and cut a tree down by hand instead of renting a bulldozer, or he would rather fix the problems with the vehicles rather than pay someone else to do it. These tools would help him greatly considering he just broke one of his not to long ago.
