Default Tool's ????

     

For all you "Week-End Garage Warriors". I am sure you will recognize at
least one of these....lol


I wish someone had explained this to me 30 years ago!!


1. DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, splattering it against that freshly painted part you were drying.


2. WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprint whorls and hard-earned guitar calluses in about the time it takes you to say, "SH**!!!"


3. ELECTRIC HAND DRILL: Normally used for spinning pop rivets in their
holes until you die of old age


4. PLIERS: Used to round off hexagonal bolt heads.


5. HACKSAW: One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board
principle: It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion,
and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your
future becomes.


6. VISE GRIP PLIERS: Used to round off bolt heads. If nothing else is
available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the
palm of your hand.


7. OXYACETYLENE TORCH: Used almost entirely for setting various flammable
objects in your shop on fire. Also handy for igniting the grease inside a
wheel hub you're trying to get the bearing race out of.


8. WHITWORTH SOCKETS: Once used for working on older British cars and
motorcycles, they are now used mainly for impersonating that 9/16 or 1/2
socket you've been searching for the last 15 minutes.


9. HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK: Used for lowering an automobile to the ground
after you have installed your new disk brake pads, trapping the jack handle
firmly under the bumper.


10. EIGHT-FOOT LONG DOUGLAS FIR 4X4: Used to attempt to lever an automobile
upward off a hydraulic jack handle.


11. TWEEZERS: A tool for removing splinters of wood, especially Douglas
fir.


12. TELEPHONE: Tool for calling your neighbor to see if he has another
hydraulic floor jack.


13. SNAP-ON GASKET SCRAPER: Theoretically useful as a sandwich tool for
spreading mayonnaise; used mainly for removing dog feces from your boots.


14. E-Z OUT BOLT AND STUD EXTRACTOR: A tool that snaps off in bolt holes
and is ten times harder than any known drill bit.


15. TWO-TON HYDRAULIC ENGINE HOIST: A handy tool for testing the tensile
strength of bolts and fuel lines you forgot to disconnect.


16. CRAFTSMAN 1/2 x 16-INCH SCREWDRIVER: A large motor mount prying tool
that inexplicably has an accurately machined screwdriver tip on the end
without the handle.


17 AVIATION METAL SNIPS: See hacksaw.


18. TROUBLE LIGHT: The home builder's own tanning booth. Sometimes called
drop light, it is a good source of vitamin D, "the sunshine vitamin," which
is not otherwise found under cars at night. Health benefits aside, its
main purpose is to consume 40-watt light bulbs at about the same rate that
105-mm howitzer shells might be used during, say, the first few hours of the
Battle of the Bulge. More often dark than light, its name is somewhat
misleading.


19. PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER: Normally used to stab the lids of old-style
paper-and-tin oil cans and squirt oil on your shirt; can also be used, as
the name implies, to round off the interiors of Phillips screw heads.


20. AIR COMPRESSOR: A machine that takes energy produced in a coal-burning
power plant 200 miles away and transforms it into compressed air that
travels by hose to an Pneumatic impact wrench that grips rusty bolts last
tightened 70 years ago by someone at Ford, and rounds them off.


21. PRY BAR: A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or
bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part.


22. HOSE CUTTER: A tool used to cut hoses 1/2 inch too short.


23. HAMMER: Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer now-a-days is
used as a kind of divining rod to locate expensive parts not far from the
object we are trying to hit.


24. MECHANIC'S KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of
cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on
boxes containing upholstered items, chrome-plated metal, plastic parts and
the other hand not holding the knife.

Big Maico.....
You just told us about yourself.
Some how we must be heavily related.
Number 1 and 8 is my favorite and number 14 made the EDM shop owners rich.
What a killer thread.

Good post Big M!

I can't begin to count the times I've been burned and scarred by a Trouble Light though.

You forgot:

Blindside Bearing Puller (Beta Tools): If ever you've split your cases and replaced your big-end and main bearings, you know you have needed to use one of these!
