I like your tools review. I have pretty much everything but breaking bar (using old pipe as extension for the ratchet) What is the regulation for people who have a garage and want do car work at home (project car)? My neighbours complain about noise even day time (they usually complain about any thing really)
Whoa, STOP!! Put down the ratchet and go buy a breaker bar. You should never use a ratchet to break loose a nut or bolt, and you sure as hell should not be using a pipe on a ratchet; that will damage the mechanism in short order and possibly break it. Breaker bars are usually longer than a ratchet and don't have a fragile mechanism. Use the breaker bar first and save the ratchet for quickly removing a fastener AFTER you have broken it loose. The extra leverage it has (i.e., the longer length) often makes the job of breaking a fastener loose an easy task.As for noise regulations, they're set by your local municipality. Check with City Hall or the police department for what's allowed in your area. There are also limits to when you can begin making noise in the morning (usually not before 7 a.m., and not later than 10 p.m. in the evening). If you're in a residential neighborhood, the regulations will likely be more restrictive than a commercial zone. It may also help to talk with your neighbors about what specifically is bothering them regarding noise. If you take the time to explain what you're doing, they may be more understanding and cut you some slack
It's a bit misleading saying £100 for a socket set but showing a £300 set, granted you can get it cheaper if it's half price with an extra 15% off but that's still £130
And people saying £180 for an oil change, he said a dealer price not a normal garage price
