    Wrecker bars are cool things to have, but what you needed was a chain, rookie:


    Or connect the end of the chain to something. But hey, if you had an hour with nothing else to do...

    40 dollar Harbor Freight electric impact wrench. Zips lugs off quickly and can break most passenger car bolts loose. Well worth the price.

    Harbor Freight is just ridiculous for seldom-used tools. I hate to buy from them but it's hard not to sometimes. Pallet jack that I may never use again? Harbor Freight.

    I use the Wonder Bar more though, that's a good tool too. Mine's from Vaughan, it's easy 25 years old and good as new.

    Funny, I was gonna post the 'Wonder Bar'. With a Wonder Bar and a 20 oz framing hammer I can demolish just about anything.

    This thing is fucking dope. It's a universal nut driver for 1/4" sockets, but also has the female end to make it a ratchet extension. I need the 3/8" version. Every mechanic needs one of these.

    Second is my moto scissor lift on wheels. Easily bring the work up to comfortable height, and wheel dis-assembled bikes around garage. (non-skid mat is hosed due to many oil/chemical baths, soon to be replaced)

    Third is the aforementioned Knipex PliersWrench. I have a 7" set, super versatile. Low profile, narrow jaws can access difficult places. Smooth jaws don't mar delicate finishes. Special design multiplies the power generated, my 7" pair can deform a penny pretty good

    same here. went there for a chain hoist to lift the motor on my dust collector and hold it in one place so I could bolt it to the stand, 5 feet off the ground. worked so well--now I'm looking for other things I can hoist.

    8" wustoff chef's knife.

    I've had dozens and dozens of fancy and/or speciality knives in my life but none have been anywhere as useful or as durable as the standard chef's knife.
