Not every time you get what you pay for. But when it comes to tools, you rather spend a few bucks more and have an excellent tool set. This will save you hours of your time over the long run. And you do not have to replace broken tools all the time. Not to mention the countless screws you would ruin with cheap screwdrivers.

Wiha 80-Piece Insulated Tool Set
The most expensive tool sets are usually purchased by serious craftsmen in order to complete their jobs more efficiently. The Wiha insulated set is one of these sets. Usually, it is just over $2000. This might be steep, but it is well worth it if you can afford it.
Insulated and certified to 1,000 Volt ac or 1,500 Volt dc. Tested up to 10.000 volts! The tools also comply with one or more of the following standards: EN/IEC 60900 ASTM F-1505-01 VDE 0682/part 201 DIN 7437 NFPA70E & CSA. All tools are individually tested for maximum safety and come with a money-back guarantee.
The tools come in a custom-molded rolling carry case and each tool has its dedicated position in it. This way you can find each tool easily and put it back in its place. That saves you a lot of time on location. The case is watertight as well, so your tools will be dry when you need them
Insulated Tools are intended to provide protection against accidental contact with charged energized circuits. For maximum safety, you should still de-energize all circuits whenever possible before starting work on electrical apparatus or conductors. Before you start using each tool, visually inspect insulation on them. Replace the tools if insulation shows any signs of wear or damage to the insulated areas of the tool.
Craftsman 450-Piece Mechanic’s Tool Set
There is a reason why Craftsman made a name for itself. You feel the quality when you take the tools in your hand. They are heavy-duty and should last a lifetime.

No more trips to the hardware store with this tool set. The box keeps everything in its place, and you can carry the tools easily around the house or take them with you to do your next job.
In the box: 3 quick-release ratchets in 1/4-inch, 3/8-inch, and 1/2-inch drives. 6 extension bars to extend your reach. 191 sockets, 6-point, 8-point, and 12-point, in both inch and metric! An array of 16 combination wrenches let you slip in where the ratchet won’t go. A magnetic handle for an easy nut or bit installation

My friend loves old German cars. He repairs everything on his old Mercedes in his garage. And he swears on his German Gedore tools. He has the S 1400 set and is super happy with it. The set is metric, so you will not find it very useful when you only need inch tools! Gedore is in the tool business for over 100 years and uses 31CrV3 vanadium steel.
