1. Oooh. Sounds good to me97 FZJ80 said:1. Gas powered air compressor, we have a commercial honda one
2. A really nice torque wrench, the kind you don't let friends borrow
3. Aluminum race jack (expensive but the weight makes them worth it)
4. A ratching wrench or set if you can find one
5. Dremel tool with kit
6. Corded drill, cordless drills aren't worth a shit when it comes to drilling through thick metal (ie your frame)
Just some ideas.
air compressor, a good one, not a cheap ass one (they seem to self destruct pretty quickly)00Andy said:
Define a good air compressor?zszac111 said:air compressor, a good one, not a cheap ass one (they seem to self destruct pretty quickly)
Good welder (lincon or Miller)
Fridge for the shop (cold beer is good)
good impact gun
220 outlets if you dont have them already
some steel to make stuff out of.....
Home Depot has a good deal for a Husky 22 Gal upright on wheels that comes with a BUNCH of air tools. It retails for $299.00. That would be sufficient for a basic garage gear head who tools around the house.00Andy said:Negative - it's actually the first thing on my tool list. Anybody know how big of a tank I'll need to use air tools?
the post above is a good example. I dont know what kind we have at our shop but its pretty big and somewhat old, it runs off of 3 phase if that tells ya something. but it is loud as hell :soapbox:00Andy said:
ANY compressor that is not an "oil free" or "direct drive" type. Direct drive compressors are the loudest and the maintenance/oil free models usually burn out the bearings quickly from heavy use.00Andy said:
How big is your garage and how much did that epoxy cost you? I've been planning on painting mine and maybe adding a little grit for traction this coming summer but I didn't know you could get DIY epoxy.Bear said:Also a good creeper or a floor epoxy. ( I used the rustoleum floor epoxy on my garage before we even moved a box into the house–drove from the closing straight to the new house and painted the garage floor! The wife even helped, next day we moved in! ) It has been a great investment so far!
