OT-Favorite tool(s)?

While I was under my truck today taking off the 1.5" blocks, for some reason I got to thinking about what everyone has for their favorite tool?

So what is yours?

I like my Craftsman RoboGrip. Man, can do everything a pair of pliers does, and then some. Like a monkey wrench and pliers combined, and better.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] No more rounding bolts.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Not to mention you can't beat the Craftsman warranty. I once took them a screwdriver that was bent in a 90 degree angle. The guy laughed and gave me a new one.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: OT-Favorite tool(s)?

Yeah, no $hit on the BFH man. I used my regular hammer and my rubber mallet quite a bit today with those U bolts and blocks.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I'd have to say sawzall and stick welder, although I have neither, but I've had a bit of time behind each. Good post AJM! *sneak sneak sneak*

<font face="Comic Sans MS">I'd have to say my favorite tool is my Husky pro impact gun. I believe 550lbft of torque. Makes fairly quick work of disassembling things... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]</font>

Re: OT-Favorite tool(s)?

I've got an older Makita cordless drill my dad gave me[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img], but the charger croaked last year.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] Haven't gotten around to getting it fixed/replaced yet, so now I'm using some Chinese made junk drill.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] It serves it's purpose, but not very well.

BFH, cresent wrench, vise grips, smoke wrench, duct tape, chicken wire, and a big pry bar. Can fix almost anything with those tools.
