    I got one of those today too, but I opened the whole thing. The bit driver is sweet, has a little button on top to open / close the storage for bits.

I don't need top shelf, but I'd like something I'll be pleased with (and that has fewer degrees of rotation between engagement points on the ratchet) the few times I need the 1/2" drive ratchet. Bonus if I can use the handle as a makeshift hammer, e.g. to tap in a control arm bolt, so I don't' have to crawl out from under the vehicle to go get the right tool for the job. I'd be grateful for any suggestions.
    Iíve got a ton of snap on, wera, SK, etc. I would honestly recommend Tekton for everything unless youíre a full time wrencher.

    Why donít they include a hard case with tools anymore?
    Looking to move on from my 18yo Makita drill/impact driver set, but that thing came with a sweet case. Anything new is meant to just chuck in a drawer with a bunch of other junk?

    No, you're supposed to buy a fancy case after you buy your fancy new tools. I think I've seen a few exceptions, but my guess is that more people prefer a different than the molded case that fits just the tool and nothing else, and plenty are already bought into one system or another (eg Packout, Tough system, Systainer, etc).

    You can get a drill/driver set with a case:

    Didn't think it was a dick move since all the photos of the tools are posted on the product page for it in tons of detail. I've never done Christmas - didn't know advent calendars were such a big deal. Sorry fellas!
