helpful tools

I got an amazon gift card for Christmas and was going to use it to get some tools for working on my bikes. I already added a 3/8 torque wrench I'm looking for a cheap but good mechanics stool, an impact screwdriver (not electric), a different petcock than the leaky stock ones I have. and front and rear tire bearings. I have enough socket wrenches and regular tools

Ignition micrometer

JIS bits (if you do hobbits)

Vacuum tester (the best way to check for airleaks)

Hole punches

Don't forget shop niceties! Get some hand soap, shop towels, gloves, etc. Sometimes the QOL stuff you can forget about but it really makes a difference

Re: helpful tools

A breaker bar to match your sockets is a good idea.

Keep a big ol pipe around for bending pedal arms.
