    does hemostats count? it has a better reach than my long nose pliers.



    sure makes it easy to get to tight spaces and put a locking grip on it. Good enough for arteries and it works for wires and little dropped parts in tight spots too.

    the guy i work with is a tool... does that count? lol.


    but on a serious note...

    a digital camera is a good thing to have around if you're forgetful. even if its a cheap one. taking pictures of something before you take it apart is always helpful when putting it back together. just doesn't help finding the bolts that you misplaced...

    At work I use a dremel tool, soldering iron, f-4 tape/electrical tape a lot (usually for repairing comm-cables). Can't really say that I use many tools at home other than on my car though. Well I do have a blade sharpener on my key ring and a few precision tools that I use to repair my mp3 players and such.

    This has been the best and most frustrating experience of my life. I thank my dad for all the help he has given me in this rare restoration. Now that the car is done, I wouldn't trade it for the world.

    Second the duct tape - and I have some really big tie wraps too - they can be a good second set of hands at times.

Circular saw, drill press, square tool, levels, hand saws, ball peen hammer, regular hammer (whats that called?), vice clamp, portable band saw, cordless drill, corded drill. I'm sure I've got more. The big one I need to add is a TIG welder...

    My leatherman multi-tool. When I have a small job, typically wiring or something in the interior, I just use my multi-tool. Saves me getting out a tool bag because it's already on my belt.

    When Im not wrenchin' Im cookin, so I like my kitchen "tools". Some of my favorites are a garlic press, my vacuum sealer, my braun coffee maker, and cheap little sandwich maker (like a waffle iron for hot sammiches).

    When my now ex-wife and I moved from Oregon to NM, I decided to sell all my woodworking stuff. I had a really nice custom built wide table saw with a runnout roller stand, and a router table attachement. I also had a 12" planer and a belt/disk sander. My shop had a built in 12hp/50gal dust collection vac system. Little did I know she would leave a year later and only wanted to move to ABQ to be able to run to her parents when she left. ... I would love to be able to afford to get back into woodworking, but I took up this automotive hobby and now have no rrom in the shop, much less the money for the tools.
