    I had forgotten how many bonehead mechanics populate the mower repair shops..

    Amen, Slapper. Most shops can't even get them to show up for work on time or on a regular basis.

    I'll hazard a guess and say they are Wiha metric hex T handles The last 2 I don't have, but a guess would be
    8 and 10 mm on stick. And some kind of fancy pliers........Don't have them either...
    Where are your ball hexes ?

    I see alot of carb adjusting tools, like the packman for Ryobi, and the two for Homlite. I would have to hazard a guess that the rest are brand specific as well....

    What interests me is the cordless Milwaukee with the bit holder and I'll assume that is a T 27 bit in there. That is not the standard chuck is it ? Looks too small ? Maybe from a die grinder ? It just looks odd......

    AAhhhh yes, the old 8 and 10 mm wrench that comes with just about every weed wacker ever made....

    A T- 27 long shank from SnapOn 3/8 drive, a slide handle or T handle with a 6 or 8 inch extension, a lonely
    T-27 bit and a extra long T-27 bit. You do alot of Sthil stuff I'm guessing......

    The only thing I don't know is that black curvy thing with the 2 large ends, ya got me stumped on that one.
