If you have a do-it-yourself mechanic on your shopping list, it’s likely he or she already has a strong selection of tools and garage toys. And since technically inclined people tend to be very discerning about their gear, they can be tough to shop for.

Consider a supplementary tool, like the “magnetic retrieving tools” from The Magnet Source. These little devices are exactly what their name suggests; snake-shaped magnetic sticks that allow for the retrieval of tiny components buried deep in a car’s engine bay.

Similarly, magnetic parts trays (magnetized bowls that keep nuts and bolts secure) never outgrow their usefulness. And since many automotive projects are made easier by keeping parts separated, one can never have too many!
