Yeah, but (and this is impossible to say without sounding like a snob) I bought them because I make more in an hour than they cost to buy but it takes me 30 minutes to drive to/from the auto place to rent them, then 30 minutes to take them back. With me having 2 kids to pick up after work (at specific times), that means that I have to take leave to pick up/drop off the tool set. Do that 2-3 times and it can be a real PITA.

I only have to buy it once and it is mine. It is easier to pay $40 and have them when I need them than it is to have to go rent them.

I did the same with the brake caliper tool kit (though I bought it on Amazon). Having it available is nice because if I am working on a car for a friend or family member (I have a lot of elderly relatives who just can't afford shop prices for things like brakes) I don't have to have them go rent it when they buy their parts, and I don't have to go rent it myself and take more of my time on top of doing the repair work.
