What tools are you using? I love my Lindstrom set of tools.

 Lindstrom tools feel so comfortable in my hands. I'm happy I invested in these quality tools. 

Precision crafted in Switzerland.
They are made of high chromium steel alloy with light action springs.
High ergonomic grips distribute proper pressure to hand surface for maximum comfort. The radius edge of the head protects from marring. Precision screw joints assure long life.
