    i think i gotta say my gerber suspension tool that the wife got me for Christmas is one of my favorites, but my favorite tool for working on our vehicles is probably gonna be between my gear wrenches and my kobalt 1/2 inch electric impact gun. but i have fun working with all of them:D!! oh yeah, i have a yamaha cable lubing tool(made for golf carts, but works on everything with throttle cables) which comes in very handy!!

    A SOG Multi tool is the one that I have. I like the angled pliers. And it does not pinch like the Gerber.
    An FB, an auto folder and a pistol are also favorite tools.

    I have been tempted to do the humane thing more than once.
    Just put a .45 in it and put us all out of our misery.
    I did acutually shoot a 1 1/2 ton Dodge hood. I was checking zero off of it with a scoped .375 H&H.
    The scope is 1 1/2" above bore. The 270 gr. hit the target on its way through the hump on the hood.
    All that you have read about the .375 is true. A mere truck will not deflect it.

    Ah yes, but mine was a special gift, given to me whilst on a treacherous trek thru the misty mountains of Tibet. I arrived one evening at a small remote village, tired and in desperate need of shower, when much to my dismay, I found out that the main water pump had broken and there was no water available. In spite of my exhaustion, I demanded that they show me this pump. I saw that the screws holding the impeller to the squirrel cage had all backed out and the impeller had fallen off. No problem, I thought, and I broke out my trusty Craftsman screwdriver. A collective gasp drew from the crowd. As I knelt beside the impeller and started to install the first screw, I glanced up and saw a young lad, perhaps eight or nine years old, shakng his head.

    Perplexed, I began to put the screws in. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get the screws to turn with the Craftsman. Sweat began to dot my brow as I tried harder and harder. I cried out in desperation, F**K!!!!!!!!!!!
    I finally looked at the screws. They had left handed threads and left handed screw slots! I was totally mystified. Finally, an old man approached me. A man, he said, claiming to be from a land called Virginia of the West, had sold the village the water pump at great cost. The man told the people that the pump would lead them to greatness. After the man left, the pump worked for three days and then broke. After two weeks, the squrriels, desperate for work, left. The village had been without water since then.

    The old man told me he could fashion a tool to fix the pump out of my Craftsman, if only I would give it to the village. With a smile, I reached into my backpack and produced another Craftsman screwdriver. A woman fainted. "Make not one, old man, but make two. One for me and one for you." I said.

    At the village's request, I have searched for that man who claimed to be from the Virginia of the West. I haven' t found him yet, but I did find my second favorite tool from a village in a land called KenTucEEE: a wiper blade sharpener. :)

    I guess mine would be the little Craftsman 160 pc tool case my son got me a few yrs ago. This thing is so comprehensive it costantly upstages the big toolbench in the garage. I keep it in the truck...it's just small enough to slide under one of the seats. I've even busted it out at work to repair stuff myself instead of putting in work orders and having to wait:)
