    If it is quality and design,then Facom,Estwing take some beating with hammers and prybars, Cold chisels are a wider choice,as long as they are a recognised brand....a lot of mine,i made from scratch:)

    I have an extensive (sad) collection,of Estwings,and me all-time favourite,which has done all me own properties and much more,is the first of the rubber handled examples. Get one with straighter claws - it proves much more useful,and has never prevented any extraction.

    If you want to guage,just how much i love it (and how much free time,a man can find,for tools...) last year,i blued it,to the same colour as me Browning shotgun :) ...and although it is not a particularly hard-wearing finish...it did look groovy,for a while :rolleyes:

    Yes, was gonna go for a straight clawed one. Really like that feature in my mate's new Wiha electrician's hammer I had a go with lately. It's just too light for me though.
    Wanted an Estwing since I asked a joiner about his leather handled beauty many years back. He talked at length about it, and I figured that any tool worthy of that much admiration had to be on my list.

    I will have a look at those hammers. I would rather buy quality, that will last. What utility and lever bars would you recommend, I only posted that brand because it seemed a good deal. I know a lot use 7” utility bars for floorboards etc.

    Also with the spirit levels, any particular sizes?

    I use the flat lever bars as in that set. Just cheap ones from toolstation though.
    Level lengths depend on what you are doing. Get some lengthy ones if you are doing a lot of kitchen fits, but a boat level for the bag and a 600mm one will do for general duties. Don't forget to consider magnetic ones for the shorter ones.
