    I'm going to quit reading this thread. I now have a air powered file that I had no idea I needed but clearly I must have it. I also have a professional rivet nut tool coming. Did I need it before today? No.

    I hate Amazon and 1 click ordering.

    Two things:

    1.
    ingersoll-rand 1/2" cordless impact. 780ft-lbs of torque. Axle nuts? yes, cake-walk. Starting someone's car? Yep. Rotating the earth a little faster, easy.

    2.
    Litening Jack. Helps that, I won it at a Dali Racing event, where the organizer gave me crap for wanting to run the advanced group in my CRX... saying "You might want to bump down a group, or you'll gonna get lapped A LOT". I made it my goal that day to find him on track and pass him.

    That's funny, that one is by FAR my least favorite. It means that I'm going to be ****ing around for hours. Or at least it did before I got my hands on Mark's hubstands and alignment string. Those hubstands make things WAY easier.

    It started leaking a little a year ago. did a rebuild, back to holding pressure, although it's lost it's 2-pumps to the chassis magic.
    I got it in April, 2005... 8 years on a jack is pretty good, yeah?

    That's not a Typo, I just can't spell no so well.

    Yep there's two, both from my grandfather.. the flat handle is probably late 40’s early 50’s vintage and the dark one to the left is apparently from the 40's. Both still work well too.

    It's a silly little thing, but I use it *all the time*:



    1/4" hex drive. I think I got it out of the $1 parts bin at kparts.

    I'd be very sad if I lost it so I spent far too long on amazon today trying to find another one like it and failed - they're ALL female.

    But it has writing on the side! Craftsman 43393 - they call it a "spinner handle" so no wonder my searching failed.

    Phew, now I can sleep at night. Summit Racing is cheapest - ten bucks.


    I wouldn't mind owning a nice little cordless electric driver like this but again, they're all female. Don't want female.

    (ooh look, amazon have 3/8" drive spinner handles too. click.)

    Just thought I'd mention that Dali Racing is an NSX open track group that usually runs at Spring Mtn., since most members here probably don't know that. Chasing down an NSX in your CRX? How rude . . .

    It will be interesting to see if they chip or splinter. One thing you do NOT want, is a carbon fiber splinter in you finger. Or any where else!

    Insanely bad idea. Durability so much exceeds weight as a design parameter - except maybe for gender confused miata guys.
