Top Five Tools


TEDDY REAKA, mechanic
Belleville Firestone
Belleville, IL


Snap-on 1/2” Drive Air Impact Wrench — A lot of power.
OTC Genysis Scan Tool — Makes diagnostics simple.
Snap-on Flank Drive Wrenches — A lot of grabbing power.
Snap-on 2-lb. Dead Blow Hammer — The ultimate take off tool.
Craftsman 1/2” Drive Torque Wrench — Very accurate.


Anderson Auto
Tolland, CT


My five favorite tools are:
Test light, it’s the most overlooked tool and the easiest to use.
DVOM, if used correctly can get you out of trouble before you misdiagnose electrical problems.
Flashlight, I don’t know how techs, can do without it. It brings the phrase “working in the dark” to the true meaning!
Stethescope, you can pinpoint a noise in very tight areas.
And lastly, common sense. Engines are still basic, they need air, fuel and spark to run. I can’t tell you how the realitively low cost of these tools can save you, when used correctly.
