HVAC/R Starter Kit

Everything you need to get in, get out and get on to the next job. Not to mention, get started on the right foot in the HVAC/R industry. This innovative new kit includes:

Dual Readout Thermometer
hilmor's Dual Readout Thermometer is the industry's first to offer two digital readouts to help simplify the calculation of superheat and subcool. It can attach to any hilmor Aluminum Manifold, or use the hook provided to attach to any gauge set.

Aluminum Manifold
hilmor's ruggedly durable Aluminum Manifold comes in 2- and 4-valve combinations and features a forged aluminum body and high-impact gauge boots. Finally, a manifold built to handle anything thrown its way. We're sure you can relate.

Quick-Engage Flare and Swage
Finally, a flaring tool that doesn't require a third arm. Two hands are all it takes to flare or swage in seconds. The spring-loaded block and height gauge of the Quick-Engage Flare and Swage make fumbling around with clunky, cumbersome tools a thing of the past.

Quick-Change Magnetic Nut Driver
It's time to make a change to your nut driver set. A quick one. The new hilmor Quick-Change Magnetic Nut Driver allows you to quickly and simply switch between 1/4" and 5/16" with just one tool. A magnetic tip keeps fasteners firmly in place and a color-coded insert makes size identification simple.

And even more. See all the other tools for yourself
