I agree, but I prefer an Xcal2, personally.I would say a Scan Tool is a vital tool to have!!
I need a better compressor and some good air tools. I had to get my motor mounts apart because I found one of mine (driver's side) was broken when I pulled the engine. My impact wrench wouldn't even try to get it off, so I took it to my alignment guy and he had it off in seconds.I would practically kill for a heated garage with a lift...
That said I love my air tools. Must be a northerner thing.
Those hose clamp tools are a godsend, but I'd also have to nominate ball joint splitters (fork type or the lever type), trolley jack, extra long breaker bars. I guess it depends what was the most recent job you've done where something saved the day.What are some tools/ shop equipment that you have discovered that you now refuse to live without.
Mine is this hose clamp removal tool- I can't believe that I used to use a channel lock for this?...
I have this same issue; my garage has no power, as of yet.The tool I can't live without, for me at least, is electricity. My house is an older house and I only have two outlets in my garage and said two outlets in my garage have shared power with my 3 bedrooms. This being the case, whenever I use my air compressor, I have to make sure that there is nothing plugged in / in use in the bedrooms or else the breaker trips. I would LOVE to have a 220v outlet, more outlets, and dedicated breaker for my garage.
After that, my list of tools would definitely change, LOL.
