    I had four; gave one to my father last year. On a side note, when HF has a sale, Iíll stock up. For instance, 4.5Ē cutoff wheels; have three of those.

    You should always have an adjustable Metric and American spanner for backup.

    +1 for stubby wrenches.

    After working on cars for 25+ years this was the only thing I had to add when I got the Caterham. Interestingly my dad's '62 is a lot easier to work on, much more space to maneuver.
