@ Monte, Dude that Tornador Gun is so badass! I was a detailer for several years, and my god that would have made things so much easier!

Also, how are the Gedor ratcheting wrenches? I'm really interested in buying some, but want your opinion first.

Thanks for all the pictures you have posted in recent days MrTools.
For several months I have seen the light-tool line from ASAHI in levelchrome.com. In good theory, the design obtained from material removed does not compromise the strength right? Or it could be some limitation on the force that can be applied to the tool?

It's been a while! I loved looking through the last few million pages of pictures.. soon I'll have something of my own to contribute again. My birthday is coming up, and this year I'm going to ask for tools instead of crummy gift cards or shoes that I don't need.

A few things off the list:

PB Swiss 215? screwdriver (The one with the interchangeable blades), and mostly Torx Plus blades for that. I just broke three torx/torx-plus drivers in the past week (2 today), because we use them very frequently, so I'm hoping these last for a bit longer!

Grobet Files... ahh.. I've wanted a few of these forever. Just the simple types, a mill file, maybe a half round/round if i'm feeling frisky, and most likely an equaling file. The Swiss made ones.. just because.

Oh, and a needle file set from Grobet too.. this is most of the reason why I'm only getting a few things this year. These babies are expensive-o. But well worth it...

Wiha "Powerhandle"? torx driver set

a few PB Swiss punches/cold chisels

Lots of deburring and scraper style equipment, though I'm not sure how much will be made across the Atlantic.

I will be getting more than this, I promise, but I need to get paid first! I get a check once a month. Blah.

The Hellstedt is a saw set. Used for adjusting the angle of the saw blade teeth. Very handy tool. I use mine mostly for my bow saws when they won't go straight. Probably not so well known these days where things are replaced, not fixed.

ash95608, I think I want more tools. Good video.

Nice video, thanks. What is the difference between the two screw extractors? I think the seconds in the metal case are new. I know the difference in design but both can do the same job? Both of them are designed for the same job? The ones in the plastic case are older but I know that they can do perfectly what they promises.











I have some photos but i can't upload them. I don't know whats going on. I'll try again later.

I really like the RHFT Facom palm control ratchets. I think the design is better than the Snap On 80 tooth ratchets simply because the head is so compact.

Now, I've only had *that* particular ratchet back in my box for a week and I haven't actually used it yet. This weekend I changed out the diff seal on my truck and used its 1/2" drive big brother to complete that job.

562 pages and I've finally reached the end!!

By way of celebration I've decided to make my very first post a pic of an old-world tool that has not yet come to light in this thread (several variations have though) - a double-first if you will...





This of course came in the tool kit of my beloved Husaberg, which was unfortunately sold when I emmigrated from Canada. It's a great opener, but I was never quite sure what they were trying to say about drinking and riding

Welcome to the forum CanUK. Nice wordplay and cool Unior.

Nice wrenches JayL. Ebay?

Hmm... two Unior posts in a row? Surely a message from the gods, no? Better start looking.

The biggest differences are, they can be turned in clockwise or counterclockwise direction (for right-and left-hand threads), built in center punch, and hex head so you can use a socket and ratchet to drive it.
