Show me your Tool............


Recommended Posts

Every now and then I come across a tool that makes my life a lot easier.........

 

Sometimes the tools are new to the market and others have been out for some time.....

 

............I get just a little frustrated inside when a tool I don't know about is out there and I don't realize it till after the job is done......

 

So........if there's a tool you own that makes any job easier please share.........could be BUILT or BOUGHT........

 

 

 

 

Here are a couple to start things off.........

 

 

Snap On prybar set......

They have a button on them so you can pivot and lock in 15* increments........almost 315* of movement......

Twist ratchet wrench. Not this brand pictured, but I couldn't find a pic of the correct brand. Not used very often but definitely a lifesaver when I need it.

Snap on makes a version of this that is really really nice. I need one. Theres so many places I just cant get any ratcheting action.

This thing. Dewalt Impact Driver. This saves me so much time (being a professional mechanic). If it's not this, it's a 1/4" air ratchet. 2 amazing tools, Lastly, Snap-On flank drive wrences. Life savers they are.

 

 

I have something similar to this........Snap-on version.......

 

.................7.2v and I bought mine before they came out with the clutched version.......

 

Hard to tell how big the Dewalt one is but looks a little bulky.........can never tell from internet oics though.....I could be way off.......

 

 

 

This is probably my most used tool...........it's small enough to fit in really tight spots........under dashes and such

To compliment this I also bought a couple 1/4 drive kits.......

This little dingleberry slips under and behind the lip of the seal and use the rod as the fulcrum..........
