The Top 5 Favorite Tools of Top Technicians

Snap-on Cordless 1/2” Impact — It has the power I need to take off lug nuts, and it’s very mobile. I don’t have to worry about air hoses.

Blue Point Digital Brake Caliper — It’s quick and easy to read when measuring rotors.

My SureFire Magnetic Base 42 LED Flashlight — It’s super bright and you have a single beam as well as the 42 LEDs. You can put it anywhere with the magnetic base and work hands-free.

Electronic Specialties LOADpro Leads — With these leads I can figure out most electrical issues in a matter of minutes. I can tell if I have a short to ground, open circuit, or if I have resistance in the circuit by just pushing a button. It’s a real handy tool; makes quick diagnoses.


My Snap-on Pocket Screwdriver with Magnetic End — I use this tool almost every day disconnecting wiring connectors with ease. I don’t leave home without it.
