Tool Review: Chapman Master Kit mini ratchet toolset

In short, currently my most-used and mostest-favoritest tool. I use it everytime I work on the bike (from taking off the seat to rejetting the carbs on my Bonnie).

My review is here:

The only issue is is that there might be better options out there. Let me know what you think and if you have a better alternative, post it in the comments section.

Looks like a really nice set. I have a home built kit with a screwdriver handle and several of those type of tips, not as complete and no T handle for breaking loose. I also have a Motion Pro kit with similar ends along with 1/4" drive sockets in common metric sizes. Your kit has the drive so all that's needed is some sockets for even more options.

Got a set years ago as a gift.

Quite handy.

I do wish there were another row to have a few 1/4'' drive sockets.

I bought one of these several years ago at Lowes:

GearWrench 85035 35 Pc MicroDriver Set

For $25 bucks, I didn't think the quality would be that good but it has held up very well. I use it all the time in tight places. Obviously, the Chapman has a lot more bits to choose from.

I don't know if Lowes still carries them, but here's a Linky to one on Amazon.
