One of my current favourites, a 'manual' bearing/seal driver, can knock a wheel bearing out in 30 second with a few well placed lump hammer hits.

Also, the individual collars (not sure if thats the right term) are handy for stacking underneath bearings when fitting hub flanges. I'm sure they'd be really handy for use with a press too.




Also, those cone shaped stepper drill bits.  I'd be lost without them! and they're cheap enough to not care if they get blunt. Infinitely quicker at drilling stuff out than changing bits 15 times


Honourable mention to heavy duty nitrile gloves. The cost of them is offset by the amount I save on swarfega!

the one "tool" I couldn't do without is my selection of scaffold poles. Fit perfectly on my sacrificial wrench, never had a bolt I couldn't undo or at worse shear off :P

New treat for myself. I love tools! Crimpers for doing battery cables. I've messed about for years trying to terminate these lugs by crimping in the vice or soldering. These make a great job in seconds.
