Looks like a super shopping streak for glittering jewels ..3/8 th drive sets nice
Taparia looks good. The one with flex head attachment
No-No don't get me wrong! These were in my collection already.If you go to the earlier pages of this thread you can see their pics already posted somewhere. No shopping spree this year at all. 2020 has not been good for many .
I like to collect my tools over years, when use and requirement arises during DIY. I never get them all at once. Moreover pocket will only allow slowly-slowly buying. If I try to buy all at once pocket damage will be huge + wife will notice and I will be homeless.
I was only posting them together here to help the fellow members esp vijesh_360 regarding his purchase decision.

continued from above:
Sorry if I am adding to the confusion here , but if you do not like the socket sets posted above, you can choose this one.This is one of the best.

Stanley 1/2 inch socket set having 24 pieces.
Pros: Heavy duty sockets,but plastic set is light enough to carry around for all types of DIYs .Plastic case has a very good 3 layered packing with it.Tools are of high grade CRV. Ratchet quality is very good and its of heavy duty type.


Cons: Very pricey.Not VFM.

I appreciate the packing done for the tools in different layering for shock proof and rattle proof storage.

Foam used has the shape of tools so it just settles there at the right place.

It looks promising,and is cost effective too, but do compare it with similar spec Black and Decker drill before finalising. Also please ensure that the battery of the machine you choose is of lithium ion type.

I am very sorry for such a late response. Was unable to see this until today.
No problem, don't worry. [:)]

I have dropped the idea of buying the drill set as I found one old set dumped somewhere in my house and that drill is still working (only thing is that the box is broken and cannot use anymore). My intention was to buy a drill set with battery support so that it can be taken out anywhere easily.

Will decide later.

These are the BIG BULL jack-stands I got online.Each of them weighs about 2 kgs.They are sturdy.In all my DIYs they support my car,after I raise them.Sometime its time consuming,and the max they have supported the whole car like swift is for upto 36 hrs!!
The white paint is again done by me,on the slightly rusted parts.I hate(and evert car loving guy should) rust.This is automotive grade paint,so it will last long.

each has a 3 TON capacity

This jack stand is even more sturdy.It weighs 3 kgs.This one has 5 ton capacity.Take it for granted that all the white colour is done by me.Originally it was orange.

this rubber bush I have installed to protect car underbody in case of use.This was leftover from the shock absorber of swift which was changed last year,in the home itself.

size comparison of the three stands.As can be seen white one has 2 iron beams criss crossing at the base.That makes it capable of bearing 5 tonnes.

Hello sir @mayankdixit
I am planning to buy a sturdy jack stand and a trolley jack for my Nexon Diesel. Want to know your kind advice about Amazon basic 3ton or 2 ton capacity(in pair) jack stand.Will it hold if I use two pair? If not suggest me a good jack stand with capacity. Kindly advise about a good trolley jack also. What should I consider while buying a trolley jack? Will it be better to purchase from local shop? Last time I purchased Stanley spanner set from local shop as per your suggestion and saved a lot.Thanks for your suggestion.

Hello sir @mayankdixit
1)Want to know your kind advice about Amazon basic 3ton or 2 ton capacity(in pair) jack stand.Will it hold if I use two pair? If not suggest me a good jack stand with capacity.
2)Kindly advise about a good trolley jack also.
3)What should I consider while buying a trolley jack?
4)Will it be better to purchase from local shop? .
1)This 3 ton stand appears good. You can go for it.
2) Don't buy this online. Local market one is more sturdy and VFM.I have my jacks here.
3) Min. capacity should be 3 ton (to be on the safer side). Also it should be very stable and sturdy.
4) Definitely.
