Automotive Systems Technology Tool List

In addition to the tools listed, each student is required to have a tool box large enough to hold all the tools listed. (a small 8 “ 12 drawer roll-around recommended) Whatever type of box is purchased, it must be lockable!

No student will be forced to share their hand tools with anyone else and it is expected that everyone respect their fellow worker with regards to borrowing. A means of marking your tools is available.

Sandhills Community College assumes no liability for tools lost, stolen or damaged while on our premises.
