I'll start.

Duct tape - Everything.

Done

It wouldn't hurt, I'd say it'd be a nice sticky for the top of the thread and good for some newbie DIYers.

Like I said, it wouldnt' hurt, I think it would actully be a good sticky to have up top of this section. also as people listed more as the post goes on, add them onto the initial post so all the info is in the 1st post and not spread threw 240593245 pages so a person wouldn't have to read threw posts voicing what brands of each they prefer and posts like this one I just made and my smart ass duct tape post.

I second this sticky. Stuff like torque wrenches, pullers, and impact wrenches. I have an impact wrench that I have never used. I need to do my front main seal but I'm afraid of jacking it up. A thread about proper tool usage would be very welcome.

naw not really. ive seen "seasoned" mechanics jerk torque wrenches, double and triple click them when torquing something, guys using a timing light on the wrong cylinder - stuff like that. im sure not everyone can pick up a micrometer and just use it. this is going to be mostly for the newer guys that want to do their own work and dont really have any experience with them.

Exactly the stuff I'm looking for. I want to do my own work but find I am only successful half the time. My brother in law works as a mechanical maintenance man in a foundry. He said I need to be careful with an impact wrench because going too fast can strip threads. Not something I want to happen my first time on my crank. Just an example. I also want to put it back on at proper torque as I see this as a very crucial place for such a thing.

my impact has 4 speed/torque settings
So you can go slower or faster depending on what you are removing/putting on.

Everything you ever wanted to know about machine tools, fasteners, ect. can be found in the "Machinery's Handbook 26" Its the bible for design engineers, machinists and drafters. If it not it there is doesn't exist.

Good looking book. A little expensive but I'm sure worth more than every penny.

Would you believe I still don't know how to use a timing light? I know how to set time by TDC, but I want to learn how to use the timing light.
