Torque wrench? What's everyone using/recommend? I need one.
I reccomend a Snapon torque wrench. Check your local pawn shops and eBay for a good deal. I picked one up for $100 bucks in new condition.

Most everything I own is craftsman, some black and decker power tools though. My buffer is Porter-cable I think, something from Harbor Freight anyways.

Nice thing tho, I can usually get away with using SOME tools at work, alll snap-on baby.

I just bought a Bosch Compact Tough 18V Lithium drill. I have a small pile of all the old cheapo cordless drills that I purchased that are all going to the trash now. I got tired of never having the battery ready to go when I was or the battery dying mid job. With this drill, it came with 2 batteries and they charge in 30 minutes.

Also, the chuck on this drill is nice. It has some sort of ratchet/clutch mechanism that allows you to really tighten it with one hand.

There is no substitute for quality tools, buy the right stuff the FIRST time or buy it over and over again.

I got my money's worth out of these tools, simply because they lasted me until 30 minute charge times came out.

Most of the cordless drills I got were $30 specials or were gifts. I think the first one got was about $70 and that worked well for a few years.
