I've had my eye on a good set of prybars....but trying to stop the initial round of tool purchases for this box.

At least temporarily.

I finally broke down and bought a 4 piece set of Snap-on strikable prybars, they weren't cheap but will last forever and so far they have paid for themselves with the use I get out of them.

Hm, never heard of strikeable ones....im guessing the tool continues all the way to the back of the handle, so you can hit it?

Have a link?

All of snap on prybars are built that way now. Yes there's a large metal button on the end of the handle thats linked to the shaft. I also bought 2 of the 48s must be two years ago now, when they were on sale. Invaluable.

Wrenches in my box go up to 2"

And I've got a wrench snipe for the big ones, worth its weight in gold. No double wrenching.

It's a tool you put on the wrench to extend the leverage instead of double wrenching like us poor folk.
