Socket & Wrench Set
Mike Evans, Vanderbilt, Texas: A socket and wrench set made by Metrinch America (Box 945, El Segundo, Calif. 90245 ph 310 414-3200) rates as Mike's "best buy". The sockets and wrenches in this set fit either metric or non-metric bolts. It eliminates the need to keep two separate sets of tools. These sockets and wrenches are designed to grip the sides of nuts and bolts and not the corners. I think they're built with quality equal to Sears Craftsman and Snap-On tools. I liked them so well that I bought another set for my son.
  "My MTD 14 hp riding mower equipped with a 42-in. deck is my worst buy. The front axle on this mower is built cheap and wears out after only a couple of seasons. The deck rocks back in order to engage the mower blades, an action that leaves very little room for depth of cut. The blades cut unevenly and plug up easily, which causes the belt to slip. Fortunately, the engine and transmission work great."
