    Common Tools that should be on hand

    Hi,

    I am really new at turning wrenches on these toys and of course trying to get over the fear of doing things myself.

    If a tool box was being put together soly for a jet ski what would you recommend? Please include power and hand tools

    Thanks
    Scott

    I have a little tool bag i keep on hand just for working on the skis.

    It contains
    Set of Torx sockets
    Set of Metric Sockets (8-17mm)
    Pair of channel locks
    Crecent wrench
    Pliers
    Cutting Pliers
    Spark plug socket
    1/4 and 3/8 drive ratchets
    6" extension for each
    10 mm wrench
    I also have a 3/8 drive DeWalt cordless impact wrench that really helps speed things along.

    This tool is so universal for anything that its amazing. There should be one of these in any tool box, it barley ever leaves my hands on a job site and i have also used it on my ski multiple times.

    The makita Lxt's are a little nicer i think. LI battery, really fast charger and the tool is smaller, more nimble, and lighter.

    Deff get the 18V, its the perfect size. You dont need anymore then that and its not overkill either.

    I suggest the Lithium Makitas we have both and i preferr it over the dewalt. It also has a little led light on it which will deff come in use if u were to ever use it in the engine compartment. The Lithium ones are a little more expensive but the Batteries last way longer (life wise) and their a lot lighter.

    Don't forget the magnetic wand so when you drop metallic objects in the hull, it makes getting to them sooooo much easier!!
