I like these babies. My new favorites. Matco Tools. Place the sharp edge between sheet metal sheets, next to a spot weld, and wail on it with a hammer. Quick, Simple.

Didn’t buy it but got it for free an ingersoll rand upright 120 psi air compressor, all I had to do was swap the electric motor from another that had thrown a rod through the block and swap the pulleys and next you know I have A 1500 dollar air compressor for just my time

Finally bit the bullet bought me a step bit drill bit! Every time I have to enlarge a hole on the 59 had to make do with whatever! Tired of the fight and bought one. My son is happy every time I buy a new tool he just smiles! That is what Dad's are for!

Scored a Skat Blast 34' cabinet with vac for $50. Seller was cleaning out garage. Works great.

Didn't even need it yet, but for some reason I bought a torque multiplier. There are cheaper ones out there, but I found a 6:1 torque multiplier made by Wright Tools. A new one is $1000, and I got this one for $350. It's like having a 4 foot breaker bar that is only a little over a foot long. 200 foot pounds on the 1/2 inch input gives you 1200 on the 3/4 output. There have been too many times where something like this would have been great. It also has a torque conversion chart, and a degree wheel for TTY fasteners. They make some with huge ratios to torque bolts to thousands of pounds, but cost thousands of dollars.

I bought a transmission jack from Harbor freight. I was installing a ranger overdrive unit in front of my SM420 in my big bolt and did not want to trust the whole mess sitting on the smaller cradle of my floor jack. Plus, my floor jack does not go up high enough...

A 20 ton hydraulic press so I could replace the bearing on the PTO shaft of my 49 8n. Now that I have it, I am surprised how often I have been using it in my shop for projects both automotive and non automotive.
