What tool has saved you the most money?

By far I would have to say my welder. At only $160 from a pawn shop, it has probably saved me hundreds of dollars in welding fees that I would have normally paid for. Now if I can just take on some side jobs to make it really pay for itself.........

My BFH, of course! Do my own custom bodywork with it to keep the fenders from molesting the tires.

Re: What tool has saved you the most money?

Well, i would change this post from saving money, to saving time. I would have to say that my:

1.) DeWalt 12V cordless drill saves lots of time.
2.)BFH
3.)A long pipe. Great for a lever and massive breaker bar.
4.)You cant forget an AIR COMPRESSOR. My Little Crafstman 15Gallon AC has helped wonders.
5.)A truck. This is the tool that saves the most money to me.

Re: What tool has saved you the most money?

A welder, angle grinder, air compressor, 3 foot long pry bar and sandblaster top my list of tools that save me money. The BFH and the 4 foot long breaker bar have probably cost me more money money than they have saved with all the broken bolts and other parts that have gotten in their way.

LOL... my dad read this post and told me to tell you this. For all you fathers out there, the best tool is your SON!, He can run and get all the parts and tools for you!. HAHA. And you can use the excuse "Son, your back is in better shape than mine, try and get that bolt off."
