Tools.. Mans best friend.

I think it would be neat to see pics of everyones favorite tools. (this could be funny). Real tools not people who are tools. lol

My favorite tool is my small welder. It is about 5 years old and I couldn't begin to figure out how many miles of wire I have ran through her. We paid just under 500 for this thing over 5 years ago. So far the only things I have done to keep her going is upgraded the spool to carry a 10lb roll of wire and replaced the liner. We have a liquid cooled tig, a heavy duity ARC, and this little mig. The mig is the one tool that has faithfully and constantly performed above and beyond the call of duty cycle lol.

Hmmm. As soon as I can pry myself away from this place, I will look into that. I see that as the purest form of Fab.

Props to a cool skill.

To me tool boxes are like hermit crab shells. We always just trade up when we fill them. I always let my guys make payments on my old box while I make payments to matco for my new one. It works.
