Our shop is full of once and twice used tools...if a guy factors that into a project it really adds up...

I'll play with one of my most recent additions. Got tired of my mismatched sockets, they were all various ages and designs of craftsmans and i didn't have this or that. So i figured i would fix it, with the 299 piece socket set of craftsman. it is every 1/4" 3/8" and 1/2" socket craftsman makes in std form. All easy read sockets, then i got the foamfittools organizer for that kit and spent some time going through and organizing it. i love it A place for everything and everything in it's place

Come to think about it, i do have a specialty tool i've used once. It was for a VW, it's a spark plug boot remover. Because if you pull the wire, you can damage the wires. But the handy dandy tool lets you pull the spark plug boots off, which is a life saver for getting the ones under the manifold. there is just enough room to pull the boot and get a socket in for removing the spark plug and installing a new one. It was really handy, maybe one of these days i'll have another friend with a VW that wants help

Been needing a good scanner at the shop for awhile now, so I pulled the trigger on an Autel 908. It is current and the battery just got replaced.

I just bought a 1” drive, 600 ft. lb. torque wrench. Now we’ll see if I even have enough... backside... to break 450 ft. lbs. on a truck lug.

My bank account has been severely damaged by tool purchases in the last couple weeks. Did you know it’s possible to spend over $1500 at Harbor Freight in less than one hour? Yep, who would’a knew?
What did you do, buy a harbor freight store in it's entirety?

I'll have something new to post here. it's technically a tool, but i need to finish painting it as it came in a natural finish and i want it a little flashier

Not a mechanics tool, but a Agazzani 24" wood bandsaw. The machine is wonderful.

Lol, you would think. I bought everything needed to get the wheels off and do wheel seals, bearings and brakes on my class 8... one inch impact, air jack, air hose, stands, sockets, 300 ft. lb. torque wrench, wheel dolly, cherry picker... all kinds of crap.

My shop looks like a Harbor Freight store.

I was so impressed with the performance of my 3/4-inch drive hydraulic impact that I bought a used 1-inch version.
It has up to 2,500 lb.ft. of torque, so either the fastener comes loose, breaks, or I go for a spin.

Is it a tool? I don't know if it qualifies as one. And I also don't know how I did without a knuckle boom crane. Here used to lift the "tray" I'm making for the camper, for the 3500 C&C.

Oh sure... you had to one up the vice fan with a knuckle boom crane.... but didn't see no fan on that crane, so it won't help you cool down


..I'd say that definitely counts as a tool though. Lol

Actually, Loki, if you look right above the left outrigger, that rectangular box is a cooler with two fans on the other side of it.
Of course, since it's a cooler for the rear hydraulics, it doesn't help me cool off all that much. Except for the air being drawn past where I stand to operate the crane, right next to it.
