OK — we’ll admit it. We’re probably just getting suckered in here by the James-Bond-nuclear-bomb-case. But hey, it looks like a pretty good selection of tools for the home — though we can’t necessarily speak to the tools’ quality. Did we mention it’s shiny?
The Anything-But-Basic Home Tool Kit targets the DIYer that doesn’t have a DIY kit already. Or maybe they’re really targeting the DIYer that’s a sucker for kits that come in an uber-organized suitcase with a few extra goodies organized in a grab’n-go softsided case for the smaller jobs.
The list of included tools isn’t too shabby:
- an 8-pc. screwdriver set
- a 16-oz. hammer
- a 16′ tape measure
- 12 combination wrenches in metric and standard
- a 41-pc. socket set
- 5 pairs of pliers
- an 8″ adjustable wrench
- a 4-pc. nut driver set
- a 16-pc. Allen wrench set
- a 7-pc. Torx key set
- a 9″ torpedo level
- a 6-pc. precision mini screwdriver set
- a lockback-style utility knife
- a 7″ folding wood saw
- a 6″ hacksaw
- and a magnetic pointer
If nothing else, it looks like it might be a good gift set for someone just starting out, especially if the glint of a shiny metal object attracts you like a moth to a flame. It’s available through the Dulth trading company for around $160.
