Nut Splitters are now on the list (under Rust Busters). Thanks.

 

 

Thanks to you and Michiganmobileman Heath Lamp has been decommissioned and will no longer be recognized as a legitimate tool for the GT enthusiast. From this point forward, we shall refer to it as a Heat Lamp.


 

OH NO!!  I just placed an order for one :smilewink: , hopefully its not to late to cancel.  Need to call my friend Heath right back and tell him to leave his lamp at home, will ask if he has a heat lamp though. :poke:

Was just checking out the list and didn't see anything about a piston ring compressor. Maybe I missed it, but I'll post it anyway.

 

Geez I thought I had all the tools I need!  Now I have to get a bigger tool box at home now :D

List looks great Moosetales! :thumbs:

What section would you like that to appear under? Specialty tools? I'm guessing since I don't know what the heck that tool is it should be listed for an Advanced enthusiast? Thanks for chiming in.

I'm going to wait a bit on downloading the list. Seems like we just keep getting new entries!

Speaking of which, I found something I plan to add to my collection:

0 to 60 lb tire gauge.

 

Oh do tell. What's the advantage of this gauge?

I would think specialty tools is the right place for it. I always use one when installing a piston with rings on it. It squeezes the rings into place so you don't hook them on the top of the cylinder bore.

reading through (most) of this makes me realize how many tools I have... and how many more I need :wallbanging:  I've though about what I've done recently and here are a couple that I haven't seen listed:

 

-an old fashioned cold chisle

-gasket scraper

-wire wheel - for those of us that don't have a blast cabinet.

-cherry picker - for heavy lifting

-a very sturdy work bench that is not too low, I like my bench at about 38" off the floor.

-pressure washer - no telling the shop tows, degreaser and dirty hands this one will save.

Consider it done.

What section(s) would you like to see these added to? Great suggestions, BTW.
