Forum: The right (and wrong) tools

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

  1. New (old) flaring tool

    I have this rust bucket Corolla that I am trying to get setup for my step-son to use - and it has rusted brake lines. So I have tried patching in some extensions - with limited results. I remember when I worked on my Plymouth cars - I redid all my brake and fuel lines from scratch - and I...

  2. Best portable jump starter or power supply?

    I've been thinking about the harbor freight centech 5in1 because I like all the features or the Clore 1700 cause the reviews are so damn good. Anyone have good or bad stories about any brand?

  3. 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

  4. 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...

  5. #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.

  6. 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...

  8. 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?

  11. 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?

  12. 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...

    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...

  15. What Rachets Do You Use?

    I use a Snap On; Ratchet, Dual 80 Technology, Flex-Head, Comfort Handle, 3/8" drive, 9 9/16" The fine tooth is really, really nice. If you haven't tried one go find one to try out. It makes it possible for you to use a ratchet in confines that previously you'd have to use a wrench. I...

  20. 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?...
