Snap-on Tools 3/8” Electric Impact — This tool is little and is able to get into tight spaces. It also has the power to take off most fasteners. The best part is, it’s battery powered!

Snap-on Tools Air Hammer (PH3050) — I love this tool because if I run into anything I need to remove, this can take it off with no problems — as long as the part isn’t being saved!

Snap-on Tools 36” Pry Bar, aka “Shirley” — This tool has been in my arsenal since I started this business and, if nothing else can move it, ”Shirley” can!


Streamlight Stinger Flashlight — I enjoy this light because it is super bright and helps me figure out most undercar problems.

Pocket Screwdriver — This tool is handy and always in my pocket, I have many uses for it and it always gets me out of a bind.
