What is the most useful tool in your shop?
 
Hey Guys and Gals think about it a minute and ask yourself, "Whats the most useful tool ( or favorite) tool in my shop?"

Mine is the single post hoist I installed while I was building my home shop. I've used it for everything from a saw horse, welding table, structure to hang parts while being painted, work table, lawn mower repair hoist, anvil, metal brake to
a ceiling to hang air reels from while I'm repairing them.

It also works pretty good for picking up my cars and trucks.
What couldn't you do without?

This time of year, the furnace is the MVP. :thumbup:

One of my specialties at work is electrical troubleshooting and repair on 60's Lincoln convertibles. I'm always working on two or three of them. The tool I use the most is my Power Probe.

I'd probably say the door :D. Nah seriously I don't know that I could narrow it down to one thing :confused:

Couldn't imagine narrowing it down to one but I would say without the MIG I would be in big trouble. I can get a lot done with the torch, did a lot of work before the MIG but it's damn limited compared to that wire feed.

I thought your favorite tool was your office computer? :D

I'm surprised no one said air compressor. Guess we all take them for granted til they need repairing.
