Most Important Tools

Was just down in my shop thinking to myself at what next piece of equipment I should buy next (just picked up a chop saw today) and ideas are getting harder as the years roll on. Here is what I got now:

Compressor
Drill Press
Chop Saw
Vice
Mig Welder
Arc Welder
Battery Charger
Chain Blocks
Bench Grinder
Hydrolic Jacks
Jack Stands
Engine Stand
2 Rolls Cab And 2 Top Boxes Full Of Hand Tools

Was thinking about a power washer or parts washer in time

Whats in your garage?

The plasma cutter is a good idea. Another tool I added a while back is a 20 ton shop press. I don't use it a lot but, when you need it, there is just no good substitute. Watch the Harbor Freight sales and you don't have to spend a whole lot for one.

Naww. that's probably not a good idea unless the quality of your work isn't important. Just let her bring you drinks and tell you how great you are.


Don't forget a sandblaster, ironworker and anvil.

A lift is extremely handy if you plan to work on cars. Which, I don't suppose you would be here if you weren't (grin). Arguably the best 2000 dollars you'll spend for a shop upgrade.
