anything snapon is worth having, but mighty expensive. I have a mix of Stanley and Sidchrome in my work toolkit. they are good quality and wont wear out in a hurry. I lost my 14mm socket and replaced it with a cheapo one from home, i wore it out in a matter of weeks...
i recommend a good 1/2" drive socket set as well as a compliment of quality metric spanners. look after them and they'll last a lifetime.

You ain't gonna get much from $400, especially if you go for Sidchrome. I'd pitch in as much as you can, it'll be worth it in the long run.
I was hoping that wouldn't be the case. I dont really care if its not a top of the line brand, as long as its built well and doesn't break then I am happy. Surely $400-600 bucks could get you something.
I know ive seen sets for thousands, but Id rather spend money else where. I just want something to start me off. I can always add to it over time.

Advertised as $4000ono. Price is negiotable for a quick sale.
I dont think you would get a very big range in sidchrome without spending alot of dosh, for the type of work that you would be doing I wouldnt be buying top of the line gear and some of the lesser brands will last you a lifetime. Kincrome is an averaged price brand and is pretty good quality, if you spend between 500-$800 should get most of the tools you need.
