Tools ....that is a tough one. I seem to work for tools.

Most used would be a toss up between the Tig welder and the coffee pot.

This is a handy tool that is always a pleasure to use www.amazon.com/Tajima-SLT-AL200M-Rotary-Dual-Scale-Magnetic/dp/B00023S4TO

Another tool I would never want to go without. I strip and assemble a lot of heads and this makes the job so easy.

Just don't go king kong on the tool. I broke mine, cracked the back off where it holds the blocks. I think I can fix it by milling the back and attaching a steel plate to replace the part that holds the blocks in place.

I bought one of these because it just looked cool and I can't resist tools anyway. I've only found one good application so far but it works great when dealing with the oil pump drive shaft.

I was on a project where I noticed a couple plumbers. Using these.. they told me that they had been using them for 8 hours a day for several months.. I can tell you I picked one up.. and it's probably one of the most used tools in my garage.. most of my work is done in the evening or at night.. about 30 bucks from Amazon

I bought a new workbench (storage unit) for clean head assembly and I was assorting all my engine and transmission tools and I found one tool I hope I NEVER have to use again. My old hand crank ring filer. LOL. I used to hate filing rings with that thing.

Personally I like the NGK setup because it works with NTK 02's and they are more lead tolerant than the Bosch sensors. Also a good reason why the Holley Dominator ECU is cool as it also support NTK.

NTK Wideband

I cringed when I bought it. After using it I wish I'd bought it years ago.
