this is a must have in the auto body trade. The problem with any other wire wheel is that it doesn't tear thru seam sealer fast enough and it sticks to the wire and smears into the metal. Not this style wire wheel tool. This will always produce etched clean metal as if it was sand blasted.

this thing has come in handy so far. Works better than jump starters much larger and Lithium batteries last longer!

I can't believe I went so many years without this. I usually borrowed them or just grabbed my porto power. This tool has been around since the 1920s and has many uses pushing and pulling/lifting/lowering.

bondo carts don't have to be messy. Wish i had a made this with a metal brake. Heck, I don't even have a metal table. Looks like crap on the edges cause I just bent it around the top and hammered. Oh well, it's done.

I love Amazon. Their reviews are top notch on what they sell at least. This socket organizer is awesome! Has a thorough range of sizes and you can easily see what socket you are grabbing. Love this!

The pole jacks do come in handy. Nice score. I like the mud wagon! Actually used a wagon in one shop where they had a paper towel holder and sand paper dispensers to hold Da and fileboard paper mounted on it. Quite convenient really.

I'd have that too but they make use vacuum sanders and the paper is all on the sander cart.

Bondo carts work in some shops, not in others and the slob factor comes into play. Trash can and towel holder on side of cart is killer but again, if the can is always full and theres never towels, sigh. I like the keeper holes for thinner, mud, and glaze, thats nifty. I might have added hardener tube holes, too. Used to use sheets, they are great if no slobs around and fill jobs are small. I like them but for resto prefer plastic boards with thumb hole and no gouges / scrapes and will assume a defensive posture if somene wants to borrow it. Same goes for spreaders. My wiping days seem long gone but the plastic boards were just right for me when scooping 3 fat dollops on a six inch spreader at a time, often in rapid succession over entire panels.

Would you believe I never heard the term pole jack? That tool's title must be regional. In Louisiana, they told me monkey on a stick. In Arkansas, its a friction jack. Extremely versatile tool in collision repair but I used one last week on a Model A body too. Thinking a tree limb fell on it maybe. What are those called in Cali?

Tech, is it slow right now or what? My box and cart always look like Berlin in 1945 because work area organizing, to a point, is less than top priority in my mind. Much more important in a crash shop. Get "slammed"!

Monkey on a stick is correct for around here also, but in a shop environment saying monkey and stick in the same sentence usually turns into a monkey something sideways involving a fist and the new guy ends up being the shop mad guy for the day. Myself and a few others just call them a pole jack, which it isn't, but it cuts down on the disruption and butt hurt. lol Probably just a local to me term. Old habit to call it that

I hear it, man. LOL. Mad guy for the day. I went through a time when the old door from one of my junks was my mad absorber. Assembly work can be frustrating and the poor thing was an outlet. Swung a 3 lb mini sledge through the skin first lick once. Sure don't need anybody mad. Pogo stick is the big pry bar with hooks and chain and a foot though, right? I used to get confused between them and the friction jack or whatever PC term they have for it in CA.

got it off of Amazon. About $115 free shipping. It's a great tool with endless uses.

got this mini file cabinet at the goodwill for $5. Game planned it on the weekend and made brackets and everything, but didn't weld a thing til I saw how big a brand new roll of sand paper would be to ensure I welded the spool in the right spot. So today I did this on my lunch break. at some point I will powder coat the whole cart and put an aluminum top over the existing top but will make my bends with a brake this time.

what I like about this is that the adhesive backed sand paper is protected from dust yet within arm's reach.
