I’ve been working as a professional automotive technician for nearly 17 years, and one of the most important parts of the job is having a well-rounded set of tools. It saved a lot of time and a lot of frustration.  But tools can get pretty pricey, so every time I’d wander into the tool truck, I would always ask what was on sale. It saved me a decent sum of money over the years, and I’m rarely stuck without the right tool. If you’re an automotive enthusiast fixing your own ride, it’s just as important to ensure you have what you need to get things done and your car back on the road. And whether that’s a tool to save you time, like a cordless ratchet, or impact to make short work of all those nuts and bolts, or just a complete set of hand tools to keep the project going, these Prime Day deals have you covered.

Not any more thanks to the cordless impact wrench.
