    Thumbs up Garage Tools/Gadgets... wierd, good, big, best, coolest, etc...

    So what is the best, biggest, greatest, wierdest, must have tools you have in your garage.
    Biggest and best tool I have: My Direct XLT, drop tail bike lift with an added condor wheel chaulk

    Wierdest (and most famous to me)gadget has to be the muffin pan. Could use a ice cube tray but the muffin pan has bigger slots. This has been around for 10 yrs with me. Helps keep nuts, bolts, etc all sorted while you work.







    close 2nd in the garage would be the turkey baster for sucking things out or filling things up

    Coolest gadget has to be the Rogue Oil Scavenger

    Certainly there are many common, big and/or usefull tools in there as well. But these seem to stick out in my mind tonight.
    What do you have in your garage?

    I don't have anything cool like that... hmmm... I'm lame.
    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy Sh*t... WHAT A RIDE!"

    Sorry, my mechanics tools are limited to basics. Now, if you want woodworking done, like a nice display case for your H.O.G. chapter pin...I can do that. How about a nice set of stereo or PA cabs? Maybe a subwoofer for your truck or car? A gun cabinet? Kitchen cabinets?

    2 table saws, a radial arm saw, power miter, band saw, jig saw, drill press, 7 or 8 sanders (I hate sanding), 4 routers, about 50 or 60 clamps of various sizes.

    Oh yeah, I have a 20 gallon air compressor, but it doesn't seem to mind if it's working on a car or a cabinet...

    That's all good shit man. What's the wierdest piece? I guess I'll have to settle for wood working when nobody else is giving me anything.

    THere are some guys there like Zam and Junkyardjon that should produce something worth discussing.

    Are most of your tools unopened or do you keep them in the original packaging?

    I have basic tools, nothing fancy. When I used to work for a custom boat trailer manufacturer I had some unique tools but got rid of those years ago.

    I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace.
