Welcome to the Forum mate........maybe pop over to the Newbies section and introduce yourself wwhen you get a minute.... 8-)

Not a bad shopping list......not sure about the glue gun.....hardly ever used mine.......definitely a power or cordless drill of some description. Feeler guages may well come in handy at some point. Hammer......a must for any aspiring mechanic..... :lol:

Good luck...... :wink:

impact drivers are useful too.

i recommend any of halfords proffesional tools. their socket sets are particularly good when purchased at half price.

if you can get a set of ball headed allen wrenches with a t-handle then you'll find these very useful on bikes.

i also get lots of use from my gas powered soldering iron.
