Greetings Everyone....I recently picked up a Hi-Lift Motorcycle Jack at Harborfreight Tools...This puppy really makes working on your bike a piece of cake...if that's even possible: The tool is well constructed and works exactly as advertised...I'm not a big fan of Harborfreight tools...so I wouldn't recommend them for all tools: But, if you're tired of slithering around on your back and struggling to get up off the ground ....if your knees hurt and you have arthritis than give this tool a look....It wont disappoint!!!

Best tool i own is my laptop. If i dont know or cant remember how to do something i just do a little research. If i need ideas for fabrication i do a little research. If i just want to blow off some steam and relax....then i can blow some shiz up with my laptop too.

Are you sure you would want to look like Jessie James and his old crew at West Coast Choppers?

Knifemaker,

A church key! It's nice to see you have a spiritual side. lol "wink, wink"
Not sure if too many know that is just one of the many names for the highly specialized tool you just posted from long ago. Many in this audience may be too young to know the term. Thanks for the laugh when I really needed one.

KM, that is an oldie, I am sure it's worth a couple bucks as a collector's item.

The best tool I own is a ratchet from Snapon. It's a 3/8 indexable type, and it works amazingly well. It indexes 22 different ways and has a longer handle than most, and I use it a ton. It works great as a speed wrench to tighten down longer bolts.
I have had it for 12 years and it has been rebuilt once since I have owned it. They no longer make it to my knowledge, but it has proven itself many a time when I needed a ratchet and a standard type wouldn't work and I couldn't get a wrench on the fastener.
I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I have a 3/8 drive SnapOn palm ratchet, a sledgehammer with the handle cut to 16 inches, a 4" grinder, and a welder. Many assorted Vise-Grips.

Best tool....favorite tool? Jeez come on. They are all great to have when you NEED them. Drop a bolt down between the motor? One if those magnetic telescope things just rock to have handy.

Can't loosen that axle nut? That 2 foot cheater bar is the king.

Really.... I think I win here. Whatever the job........ My "church key" is the first tool I grab....and the last.....all the others are just standbys....;)

I am not a beer drinker but I second the nomination for the "Church Key" as the best and most useful tool. I have seen a lot of amazing things happen right after the use of this tool by others. Any motions to close the nomination process and get to the actual voting?

My favorite tool is my Knipex. It works as pliers, wrench, wire crimper, hammer, attention getter, bottle opener, and paperweight. I refer to it as my all-purpose-americanmetric wrench
