Ingersoll-Rand 231c 1/2" Impact Wrench – It never fails to deliver. It’s 16 years old, and I’ve only had to replace the anvil. Saves my money, for sure!

Raytek Non-Contact Thermometer Raynger ST2 – I don’t have to wait for a temp reading from a mechanical thermometer and I don’t have to mess around with a thermocoupler. Saves time and makes money.

OTC Genisys with Identifix RepairTrac – These aren’t just theoretical fixes. They’re real real-world fixes that make the job easier.

OTC Perception Scope – Simple and accurate scope.

ALLDATA DVD – Couldn’t run the shop without it. Fast access.

Matco PM6405 Piercing Test Clips – Haven’t seen anything comparable. Easy to use, but better yet, they make one reliable connection.

OTC Low Amp Current Probe – A must-have to really find out what’s happening inside electrical circuits.
