Can anyone recommend affordable tool kit?

Can anybody recommend/suggest a solid and affordable tool kit? Just trying to do some handwork myself. (installing axlebacks, etc)

Would appreciate a link to an online store!

Thanks in advance.

My recommendation is to check your local pawn shops and buy anything Craftsman, MAC or Snap-On. You can find some real bargains. Just remember that if you have a newer model you need metric sizes.

Craftsman's hands down. Bent a screwdriver using it as a pry bar. Took it in and they handed me a new one, no questions asked.
