Forum: The right (and wrong) tools

Discuss all the tools for your project: what you use, what you broke, etc.

  1. Single most useful tool you own?

    I'm curious as to what the 'go to' tool is for you guys? You know, the one tool that you find yourself using on almost every job and that always gets the job done? I'm in the middle of stripping down and 'refreshing' the engine out of my Celica, in a carpark, without access to electricity or...

  3. What Conventional Wrenches Do You Use?

    Snap On: Set, Wrench, Metric, Combination, Long, 12-Point (10 pcs.) (10-19 mm) Stock #: OEXLM710B Like I said, good tools make a big difference. But honestly you can get the flank drive style wrenches from most tool manufacturers. What makes them better is instead of using the edges of the...

  4. Post pictures of your tool collection/boxes/organization (or lack thereof).

    I thought it would be interesting to see everyone's tool collections, how you organize them etc. I'll be posting pictures of mine tomorrow. (Came up with this idea at 1:00 AM...) I know some of you have a pretty insane amount of tools, which are freakin' sweet to look at, so show em' off!...

  6. What air impacts wrenches do you use?

    Right now I've only got my one 1/2" Snap On MG725 Been pretty happy with it. Best part about it for me, it's got a silencing chamber! Hurray to being able to hear 10 years from now. PS: The 600ft/lbsFW and 800ft/lbsREV isn't bad either.

  7. What do you use to lift/pull your engine?

    Just wondering what idea's anyone might have here for manipulating engines/transmission combos. I've installed/replaced engines and transmissions on multiple occasions in my past, but have a different situation now - I live in a suburban type home that has "trusses" in the roof, and while I have...

  11. I need a decent, preferably cheap air compressor.

    I just need a compressor that will have enough CFM to push a decent impact. Cheaper is better. Must be able to zip off tire lugs, flywheel bolts, etc. Typical stuff. Doesn't need to be able to break stuck CV nuts or anything. Any suggestions? I know absolutely nothing about compressors or air...

  13. Harbor Freight Earthquake Impact Wrench

    Bought one a couple days ago and used it to do a tire rotation today. Freaking amazing. Just as a "test," I threw it on my Crank Pulley nut today to see if it would take it off (since I'm doing my timing belt this weekend anyway). It took literally six seconds before it came loose. It hadn't...

  14. Sockets: Mastercraft/Craftsman VS. Mac/Snapon

    well what do you guys say? is there a noticable difference? is it actually worth getting a set of snap-on or mac vs the other stuff? forget the difference in price, and maybe warranty? and just compare tools to tools

  15. Best Tools

    No, this isn't a contest for the mods... I am talking hand tools, and not of the flesh variety. I destroyed another Craftsman tool today, and every time I go to get them replaced, I get one from China. Do they make any decent tools in the USA?

  16. Air Compressors

    Let's talk. For general use, running a nailer, a DA, maybe an impact. I doubt I will run a sprayer. Price is a concern. 120v to run off a regular outlet. I am looking at this: http://www.lowes.com/pd_470443-30449-0332041_1z10d76__?productId=50129760&Ns=p_product_price|0&pl=1

  17. Flashlight/Penlight

    I was curious as to which flashlight/penlight you guys use. I bought a Streamlight Stylus Pro last week and just love it. Alot of punch for such a small light. So what do you all carry in your pocket/tool box?

  18. My Christmas present to myself...

    I have four cars - and a one car garage. Of these four cars, which are all Celicas, three of them are "keepers" and one is for parts. I will be needing to really get my hands dirty after the holidays - as I have to pull some engines. I had some big ideas about putting up a beam in my...

  19. Compressors - Oiled or oil free?

    So, about to replace my dead compressor with a 20 gallon one. My question is, there a benefit to oiled? Or should I go the lazy path and get an oil free one?
