I already have a large selection of tools for the house and my cars-trucks etc. A large compresser 65 gal. with a high cfm has been has been vital for all the air tools. The AS caused me to add a pneumatic rivet gun(from HF), a flairing tool for the copper pipe fittings, and a very small tubing cutter for those tight spaces. I haven't even started on the polishing tools. My wife always knows where to find me when i have spare time. And as lewster said the bottle opener is never to far away.

Fix anything?

Is it true that you can fix most anything with Duct tape and WD-40?

Red Green says you can, but I don't think he promotes the use of WD-40.

Me! I am my favorite tool because I am adept at using all the tools I have!

Seriously, I LOVE my 18v DeWalt tools (especially with the new lightweight batts) and my Gerber.

Godspeed,
Trent

Spring bar installer tool

Hi, the spring bar installer tool is my favorite because I never use it. I always carry it with me; And it amazes people how clean and pretty it is [my spring bar tool] until I show them how to install the spring bars with your bare hands.

The one tool that gets stored in the side compartment is:

Goodyear 24V battery powered Impact wrench

I use it each trip to power the stabilizing jacks down and back up...

It's right there if I need it to remove a tire/wheel on the AS or the TV if needed...really handy for that.

This tool is really handy for any of those jobs with rusty, frozen bolts/nuts...used it when changing axles recently, really a time and knuckle saver...

I have a hand cranked blender...maybe I could remove the handle and use the Impact to make Margaritas...
