    Default The Tool Drool Thread

    Some men, likes tools. I am one of them but I must say that I later learned how to manage the addiction a bit.

    Lets start with a few things other than the bare basics that makes life in the garage much easier:


    One of them that I use the least, but which is a life safer when I need it, is a stud removing tool from Wurth. (Cat Number 3518). "Easy-outs" never worked for me. Thos one did.




    Another from Wurth, also very handy is the Auto Ammeter.




    One used often though, is this type of Oil Filter Wrench. I got it from "SG Tappin" - a local business. I was looking for years for one that works.




    Another very handy tool, is this ball joint separator from Autozone.




    And my personal pride and joy, is my Raglan Littlejohn late. A pity it cannot fit in a toolbox.

    There is nothing in the world like a well balanced hammer:

    Estwing Claw Hammer



    a De Walt Battery Powered Reciprocating Saw



    A mystery tool to some, but it works like a bomb.

    SPOON!

    Have my own mystery tool. Lost slide section, just use pipe over handle. Nothing beats it drawing nails.

    What captivates me, is how a simple tool like well designed designed hammer - like the Estwing - can make the job good!

    If you really want to drool visit the Tool Shop in Strijdom Park

    http://www.toolshop.co.za/

    Not the place to be if you are looking for cheap tools from the East. Only top of the range stuff from the UK, US and Germany and probably places I do not know.

    Prices are eye watering though but if you want the best you must pay. IIRC the Estwing hammer was about R800. You got to love the sweet sound it makes when hitting a nail to drop that kind of money on a hammer. Fortunately I was given one as a gift!

    R800.00 is a bit wild, I think I paid ~R350.00 for mine.

    I would say I love tools too, but that just sounds weird...

    I like boxes, you know, the ones that the tools come in...

    Who remembers those old Stanley screw drivers?

    Some nice boxes there too.

    I think you were lucky or bought it a while ago. Couldn't find the price on Toolroom's website but here is one from rs online. R673 + Vat which comes to R768
