23 Piece Terminal Connector Release Tool Kit

8MILELAKE Terminal Release Kit. Not bad for a cheap kit bought from Amazon. $42 for it. 7 months if use.
 Pros: Does what it's supposed to and was cheap. 
Cons: It's cheap, and being so... the thinner tools bend a bit too easy. Much better than those tiny ones that come on a key ring though.

Olsa Tools 1/4" Metric Magnetic Socket Organizer

Olsa Tools Socket HolderJust received my first item from Olsa Tools and it is great! High quality abs plastic by the feel. Surprisingly heavy. Magnet is super strong. Must order the 3/8 and 1/2 inch metric versions to completely organize my loose sockets in my box. Also comes in several colors and SAE for each drive size. Highly recommend!

Performance Tool W2082 Cordless Heat Gun

This is a lithium ion battery powered heat gun. It can also blow cool air almost immediately after blowing heat to cool a joint you just put heat shrink on. Great tool to have, especially when you are under a dash and don't have room for a heat gun and where you don't feel comfortable using flame. Low cost, $20-$30 depending where you look. The only drawback is that the battery doesn't last long enough to complete a big job on one charge and the charge time is too long. So at this price point... buy two.

Motivx Tools 3 Piece Universal Set

Here we have a set of spring loaded universal joint adapters. Part number MX1662-3 from Motivx Tools. Round about $20. Packaged very nicely. They are very, very handy. My biggest complaint of most universals is... they are too loose. These are perfect. Makes it so much easier to put in place when you have grease, oil, or coolant on your hands. A definite buy! We will try out more product from this company for sure.
