I carry some butyl tape for an easy fix for leaks on seams or windows. And its easily removed for a permanent repair when you have the time to do it.

Know you know why I have a 34' trailer and a 1 ton, dual wheeled diesel truck to haul it all around with.

As you apply your loving touch to your AS, put the tools in one place. Count said tools and duplicate on your travels.

You can probably exclude welder, plasma torch, a-frame and rivet bucking tools.

Anyone found a good, small toolbox with plenty of bins to hold my assortment of SS screws, electrical connectors, etc., plus a few hand tools?

Airperson here, My cheep tool place, Harbor Freight, has soft sided tool bags for around ten dollars but they are often on sale for half price and home depot has a fitted bag that fits there plastic buckets that hold many tools in there own compartment.

I try to limit tools because of how heavy they are. But, I have one toolbox with the basics. After 18 months, what I have used the most is:
-Vice grips medium size: I do all hose attachments with it.
-Torque wrench/sockets: Lug nuts, hitch bolts. Indispensible.

After those two a few screwdrivers and channel locks. I also carry a multi-meter, but realistically if things get to that point, I probably won't be able to fix it. Duct tape, black electrical tape and WD40 round out the kit.

I've seen a couple guys with a full-on mechanic's workshop in the bed of their truck. I've seen people without a screwdriver too!

Actually something much better then duct tape (where residue will need to be removed) is 3M heavy duty packaging tape.

Amazon.com: Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape, 2 Inch x 800 Inch, Clear: Office Products

Tools explained.

DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it.

WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light . Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh sh--!'

SKIL SAW: A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short.

PLIERS: Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters.

BELT SANDER: An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs.

HACKSAW: One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle... It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes.

VISE-GRIPS: Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand.

OXYACETYLENE TORCH: Used almost entirely for lighting various flammable objects in your shop on fire. Also handy for igniting the grease inside the wheel hub out of which you want to remove a bearing race.

TABLE SAW: A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood projectiles for testing wall integrity.

HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK: Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes , trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper.

BAND SAW: A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops to cut good aluminum sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside edge.

TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST: A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of everything you forgot to disconnect.

PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER: Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lids or for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splashing oil on your shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads.

STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER: A tool for opening paint cans.. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and butchering your palms.

PRY BAR: A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part.

HOSE CUTTER: A tool used to make hoses too short.

HAMMER: Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent the object we are trying to hit.

UTILITY KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use.

SON-OF-A-BITCH TOOL: (A personal favorite!) Any handy tool that you grab and throw across the garage while yelling 'Son of a BITCH!' at the top of your lungs. It is also, most often, the next tool that you will need.

Bob


This is the funniest thing I have ever read!
