Whats your Favourite Hand Tool

Ok i'm Bored, Just wanted to know what everyones favourite hand tool is in their tool box, and why?

I would have to Say my favourite hand tool is my Wera 3/8" drive Ratchet I just picked up.

Its my favourite because its design and how it can replace 20 or more tools, from what i can think of! and it puts my mastercraft ratchet to shame!

My Blackhawk 21MM to 34MM ratchet wrench set! Those oversized wrenches have helped me so many times.

Husky Metric Allen key set.

Can take apart 80% of my bike with it, and fits in 1 hand.

Hmmm... tough call for hand tools probably my 6" long 3/8" wobbler extension. It make's hard to get stuff easy to get at quickly.

By far my favorite tool is my little ol MIG welder.

I started using Cleco pins yesterday for the first time. The little buggers are awesome for sheet metal work.

When you're lining up two panels to be bonded, you just poke a hole through both parts, and drop in a Cleco. They're spring loaded, and totally reusable. They are also far more accurate than taping, and being light, won't pull or distort your work like clamps etc.



I can't say I have a favourite hand tool, but these are pretty rad.

Do my Chicago Pneumatic die grinders count? It's all fine detailed work with my hands when I'm porting heads!

If not, then my good ol' trusty Weller WES-51 soldering station. Small and light enough to place on an engine while I'm doing wiring, but 51 watts will solder anything up to lugs with more than two 10gauge wires (which I use a butane micro-torch for).

i find just about any multi-purpose tool annoying and too bulky to get into the tight areas. so i pretty much just use the normal rachets, however ratchet wrench sets rock some serious ass.

however if all else fails..

How many beers did you drink in the time it took you to write that post? It went from legible to your normal Nashman-ese in about 2 lines.
