    4 1/2" Angle grinder. I think this is one of my favorites. It cuts, grinds, sands and is loud. Makes short work of anything you put in front of it and are pretty cheap.

    Agreed. But it can either be your best tool or your worst enemy depending on the situation lol.

    My favorite tools are a 4 1/2" grinder with cutoff wheels, flap disks, and grinding wheels. My mig machine, I've only had it a year but I have used the hell out of it. We also just bought a corded impact. It makes rotating tires very easy. Oh and I almost forgot, a good air compressor with a nice sized tank and good air tools is a must have. Our compressor just went out and I didn't realized how much it was used until it was gone.

    ......I agree this is one of my favorites. I don't use it that often but when I'm trying to get out a rusted bolt and the SOB just won't budge I go grab the grinder and cut it off and the job is done.

    Also, maybe doesn't count as a tool, but PB Blaster is the best shit i discovered this year. Even if it smells like old people mixed with toxic ooze.

    Any kind of long handled, angled tip, needle nose pliers.

    I have a GearWrench Double-X one, great tool. Also a really good tool to remove stubborn rubber lines from metal tubing. Do not pull on hoses with the pliers, but use them as a lever to work the rubber off.

    Speaking of cordless impact guns, what kind is everyone using? I need a new one and been looking around. The dewalt has 300 ft pds of tq, but is $300, the craftsman is only $150 and has 200 ft pds of tq. Any others I should look at? I need the 1/2 drive one. One of my favorite tools that I cant live without is a mini torch. I love that thing for all kinds of uses.[​IMG]
