    We'll have none of that new fangled smut here. I assume you were watching a Carry On film whilst posting that Wrinx.

    I've got a set of Sealey/Clarke digital verniers, great piece of kit and like Wrinx I couldn't be without them now.
    Had them for about 10 years now. Just make sure you keep a spare battery to hand.

    I just received a new obd reader, lpg interface and the software for most of the major lpg installation brand to at least be able to diagnose the systems more easy.

    now just wait for money to get the prins and brc interface. then ime done. Now have to work in earning it back.

    And... removal tools for windscreens (looks like i have a lot of windscreen isues on my cars. (water everywhere, even in my seat. so much for a sunroof.)

    next to that for 300 euro worth of lpg parts. have completed 3 kits with these spares. one 6 cylinder and four 4 cylinder big block kits. all suitable for 250 hp.

    *is broke now*

    I bought hog ring pliers and hog rings. I just made leather seats for my Q4 from 156 leather covers. Some extensive modifying and head scratching was necessary

    My new favorite tool at the moment is the cheap electric impact wrench. I figured I'm probably only going to use it in the garage so no need for cordless, and nothing too heavy duty so no need for air and an expensive new compressor.

    Anyway this thing has been removing stubborn nuts for me quite happily. Miffed I never bought one earlier, would have made things so much easier.

    I like my tools as well, so in the last year I have bought : digital vernier calipers, a huge torque wrench, a small draper socket set and one electric impact wrench, I also don't know how I managed before without one

    I recently bought a complete Examiner with all the accessories and testing parts.
    Software version v5.20. After cleaning the hardware, it seems to be working just fine.
    Not tested on a car yet.

    Wondering if some documentation is available about the functioning of this testing tool and what the latest version of the software might be.

    I am feeling lucky to be able to make this purchase

    The other night in Aldi, I saw some hefty chrome vanadium combi spanners (a set of 16) for 7.99, absolute bargain, had to get to add to my already hefty stock of them, you can never have enough imo

    Aldi sell some very good tools - I've got a set of these spanners and they have already come in useful. Angle grinders and Orbital sanders are cheap but good

    Looking forward to getting down to Aldi when I get back to the UK next week. However my tool of choice at the moment appears to be a blowtorch, seem to be using on lots of stuck parts at the moment.
    Oh and a heat proof mat comes in handy too.

    Ahh, let us know how you go on with it, been thinking about one of these for some time.

    I'm currently looking at some rubber mallets, a swager and an expensive metal folder!
