The Special Tools the Car Hobby Guy Needs in His Home Shop
The first custom tool you must have: I can not tell you how many time this tool came in handy. I have at least a different sizes in the corner of my garage. And, I can truly tell you that I got them all for free. This tool is simply a piece of steel pipe I put on a ratchet or wrench for added torque for those pesky bolts and nuts that want to stay at their place of rest. I started with a bumper jack post as it fit many of my tools inside its oblong open center. The last time I used the what I call the wrench extender was when I had to set the crush bearing on the pinion gear of rear differential of my 1957 Chevrolet non Bel Air-150-2-door sedan. The process requires 90 pounds of torque. The extender was the only way to get the torque wrench to click the correct twisting force.
