At the moment I am stocking a workshop for intermediate/advanced useage, and need to get the tools. perhaps someone is kind enough to make a complete list for me what they have in their workshop. i have a list, but it´s incase I have forgotton something
Thanks

Hi Jay Cee,

I keep 2 thru 10mm and some half sizes too in allen keys. I have multiple 4, 5 and sixes since they are the most frequently used and I don't want to have to search for them. I also have a combination set on sockets so I can torque them.

The Torx I have a nut driver combination type set and I have another combination set on sockets so I can use a ratchet.
