My tool box is full of em.

mechanics stethoscope.Finding an engine noise has never been easier.

stubby wrenches.for the tight spots where a standard wrench wont go.

gearwrench's.Saw em on TV,thought they were junk.Now I own standard & metric.

wobble extensions.where a straight ext. just dont fit.

3/8 drive cordless impact.Bought it,used it & bought a 1/2 drive.

Ford ignition module wrench.Easy on a Mustang,but on a V6 Ranger,it's a bear.This tool makes it a whole lot easier.

Carb. overhaul stand.I built it myself,wouldn't sell for a million bucks.Well,yeah i would.I would build another & pocket $980,000.

roll away tool & parts cart.No more trips back to the tool box.Well,it at least cuts em down to 1 or 2.

lots more,but I better shut up for now.Haven't been on here in awhile & don't want to wear out my welcome so soon.

No chance of that, buddy!

Some of my favorite tools:

A short 1/2" x 9/16" closed end combo wrench. With that in your pocket you can remove 90% of the bolts you come across.

A short but BIG screwdriver with a full size handle. With that, something either loosens or breaks. No in-betweens!

My old Sears multimeter. Ugly as sin, but still works perfectly. It's had the same battery in it for 20+ years.

Inspection mirror made from my wife's old cosmetics case. Hey, it works and it was free!

2" x 4' metal pipe. Sometimes, violence is the only answer. {on bolts!}

My BFH. {see above}

Tired of resetting your radio and having other settings change every time you unhook your battery for a few minutes? A 9 volt battery a diode and a cigarette lighter plug will keep everything set.
