Top 5 Favorite Tools & Equipment


Rick Moe, owner
The Nurburgring, Inc.
Saint Bonifacius, MN


My shop is an independent Porsche repair shop specializing in 356s and early 911s. I’ve been a professional Porsche mechanic for more than 30 years. I established The Nurburgring, Inc. in the Minneapolis area in 1977. I am a factory-trained mechanic with extensive background in all phases of Porsche repair.

Here is my list of top 5 tools:

Nikon Cool Pix 800 Digital Camera — I keep customers up-to-date via e-mail pictures. It also aids the memory as mine slips away…

Mac Tools AW226 3/8” Impact Wrench — In my 35+ years of wrenching this, or its equivalent, has saved my right elbow.

Mitutoyo 150 mm Digital Calipers — Seems there is always something to measure.

Fluke 179 Multimeter — Straight-forward, very reliable, no bells and whistles, just quick, accurate readouts.

Raytek Ranger ST Temperature Gun — Just a great diagnostic tool. A very fast way to find faults.
