Default Re: Tools and tips needed for assembling Motorized Bicycle kits

CT Tripps covered the major tools. Get a nice set of metric sockets and combination wrenches. Buy a torque wrench, please, and use it. You might want a set of metric Allen wrenches too.

Best advice is buy quality tools. Not junk from discount tool suppliers. You'll be glad you spend the extra dollars for wrenches and sockets that fit and don't round off after several uses. Precision measuring tools need to be good ones especially. Torque wrenches, digital calipers, volt/ohm meters etc. are something you want to read correctly, not ball park, or that give you inconsistant readings.
