About ten years ago I was doing field service on biomedical equipment, this little tool kit got more use than all of the other tools put together. It has 90 percent of what you need for all types of fasteners, and many add-ons are available for specialty fasteners. The tools are rugged and made in America.

For assembly and disassembly, Chapman miniature ratchet kits are ideal for working in tight spaces and are unsurpassed in versatility and speed.

The mini ratchet gives you the balanced leverage you need to loosen frozen or rusted parts without damaging them.
