That's a very versatile tool you have. Will come in very handy when going on a trek, or on a camping in the outback, in the jungle etc.
It will equally prove useful in home. It's like a swiss army knife.
Where did you get it from?
I got both the tools from the US, topeak alien II got it in the year 2005 and the Leatherman in 2011, both the tools are very Handy, Topeak when you are bicycling and the Leatherman, camping, in the house,also i use the leatherman in a lot of my diy videos which I upload on youtube.

I watched and liked the Activa muffler repair video. Well done. I specifically liked your tools and the wrench you're using in the video.
That flexible extension you were using to reach deeply placed bolts,was superb.

certainly sir ! kindly share the model and your personal opinion on the electric wrench !few pictures also will be beneficial .
I have narrowed down on INGCO electric wrench available on amazon.in
.If you can kindly look at it and share your opinion it would help me greatly in making a decision
INGCO and TOTAL brand products are good and reliable. Both brands make similar products and I own some of their hand tools and accessories. i.e Drill Bits, Hand Saw, F Clamps and etc

Bookmyparts is the authorized dealer for INGCO but the one you are looking for is not in stock now. Still you can send them a message and ask for it.
Same product from TOTAL is available in Amazon but it costs 7.4k. Seller named "MR. CARE CENTRE" is authorized dealer for TOTAL.

As of "RAJKOT MACHINERY STORE" seller, he is a new seller (no reviews) and not fulfilled by Amazon so I wouldn't advice buying INGCO Impact Wrench from him.

Yeah it has 10 days return policy but I'm not sure if whether amazon will do return pickup. Please confirm with the seller or amazon.

Although I am not aware of this brand,nor have I heard this name from my colleagues,but this product looks quite promising.On opening the links you provided I came to know that the specifications are good and the final torque figures( 550Nm) are safely more than what's required in our daily DIYs. Best thing is price!.Had I known about it earlier I could have saved a lot.Also you get the 6 sizes sockets + adapter alongwith it.So overall looks like a nice buy. I cant say about the real world performance though. Try it and return if you don't like it.

Whenever I opened up the engine bay of my scooter,I found it to be smeared in oil.After careful inspection,I concluded that the head gasket of my 2016 Honda Activa 125 was leaking oil for quite some time.I decided to replace it in my home as a DIY project. I procured new gasket from the Honda ASS.It was not costly at all.Tricky part was to find out if actually the gasket was leaking or the leak was somewhere else.

I cleaned up all the oil and grime and opened up the head cover.I proceeded to pull out the old gasket and put in the new one.i used gasket RTV sealant for this purpose.

This is the culprit Head cover gasket which was causing problems.On inspecting it closely I could not find any cuts or abrasions or tear in the rubber.Also there was not a single place in the perimeter which looked to be weak or poorly sealed. But point to note is that After changing this gasket oil leak has mysteriously disappeared furthur giving weight to my correct diagnosis.I inspected the area after 50 km driving and it was squeaky clean.So all is good and DIY was successful.
