Classic hand tools and pliers
A high quality set of hand tools will last you a lifetime. Many mechanics choose to bring their own hand tools to work with them because they are so comfortable using those tools. Here at the RAC, we have a huge selection of hand tools including screwdrivers, mallets, hammers, pliers, various kinds of saws, wrenches, files and more.
A tool box complete with a selection of essential wrenches, screwdrivers, spanners and other tools makes a great gift for a budding mechanic or anyone that likes to carry out essential DIY and car maintenance themselves. If you already have a good tool box, and are just looking for some spare screwdriver heads, or some replacements for worn or damaged tools, then our selection of individual tools will meet your needs.
In addition to hand tools, we sell measuring equipment, testers, staplers, cable shears and other construction and craft related tools. All of the tools we sell are hard-wearing and durable, and have been tested to ensure that they can survive the rigors of a hard day's work in a garage.
To ensure that your tools last as long as possible, you should store them in a tool box or a storage drawer when you are finished using them. Many of our hand tool kits come with handy storage rolls, carry cases and tool boxes, so that you can protect your tools from damage when they are not in use.
Do not leave your tools out on the bench where they may get knocked, dropped or damaged. Do not leave them outdoors, or in a damp or humid environment. If your tools show signs of rush or wear and tear, replace them immediately. Damaged tools, even hand-powered ones, can be incredibly dangerous and should not be used under any circumstances.
Our range of hand tools covers everything you need for your home workshop or garage, general tools for DIY purposes around the home, specialist engineering tools for carrying out essential car maintenance as well as more specialist construction tools such as hole-saws and pipe cutters.
