  2. #1 tool for diagnosing automotive electrical systems = POWER PROBE 3

    http://www.powerprobeonline.com/power-probe-iii.html It is next on my Definitely Buy tool shortlist. I have used the older models and this one blows them away. I can't begin to tell you all how much time this would save a pro or diy mechanic.

  3. Good soldering equipment?

    So after trying the craftsman soldering iron (again), and realizing (again) that all of the tips are bad--they don't heat right, the core gets hot, but the outside just chips and falls apart, without reaching a usable temperature--I'm ready to buy something descent. I don't need professional...

  7. Tool list for newbies

    Hey guys, If you don't know already I'm pretty new to working on cars and actually COMPLETELY new to owning a car! So I thought it would really benefit me and maybe some other members to create a list of tool one would need to do most jobs around a Celica. I'm going to be swapping the...

  8. Fasteners!

    Ok, So I have a hard time keeping track of every nut and bolt during a project. Moreover, I would often MUCH prefer to replace a lot of the rust caked bolts I'm replacing with shiny new ones. Who do you use for your fasteners? My best is always Lowes, but feel like I'm shopping in the...

  11. Powder coating

    Is anyone else doing their own powder coating? we just got a powder coating setup for the shop and I have to say that the first test run came out very nice. I look forward to ditching the paint and going with Powder coating for everything from this point forward. Anyone have any tips and tricks?...

  13. Preferred scan tool

    Anybody got a recommendation on a good OBD2 scan tool? Not just a code reader-but the kind that reads all the sensors and gives me crap like short/long term fuel trim and pulse width,,etc? Ive been reading online and hear one person bitch about how it doesnt work on some models, etc. What have...

  14. Pneumatic tools

    Whats your preferred make/style? I'm using a Kobalt set right now. 1/2" impact wrench, 3/8" ratchet, and a few other goodies that came in the set. I need to pick up a 3/8" impact wrench (as sometimes this 1/2" is a beast to get into smaller spaces). I'm thinking of finding something around...

  15. EDU me on battery chargers

    I'm clueless. I don't have one, nor do I have jumper cables. I saw an advertisement for Battery Tender products while watching Powerblock this morning on Speed. How are they?

  16. Input on welders

    So, I am thinking I want to get a welder soon. The last time I welded was over a decade ago, and in HS lol. With that knowledge in place, what would people recommend for type (MIG, TIG, etc). Odds are this will be a harbor freight purchase since they seem to have the lowest prices and this is...

  19. Vacuum Oil Change system

    Since the filter is on the top of the 3S engine and it is harder to get the jack under the car, I decided to try one for vacuum oil extractors. For those not familiar, you put a tube down the dipstick tube, pump the vacuum vessel to build vacuum, open the valve and the oil magically come up...
