      I love tools. I have them all over the place in carrier bags and most of them are at the motorcycle club. This digital torque attachment turned up today after have lost it for over a year. In the meantime I had to buy 2 torque wrenches because I had misplaced this. This is fitted between the ratchet and the socket.
      To cover costs I do simple repair work for people, mostly light stuff like exhausts, shock absorbers, wheel bearings and suspension/steering details. Any straight forward job I can finish the same day, I take. I don't touch the electrics or timing belts on other peoples cars.

      My rear brake rotors are shot. The winter salting is the problem with them and must be changed before they wear out. Instead of changing the pads I let them wear out and now there is metal to metal contact.
      I ordered a set of rotors and pads from Germany. These rotors are coated with a nickel coating and hopefully will last longer. According to UPS, it should be here tomorrow.

      Today I changed the rotors and pads. They did not look good at all and the friction material was about to drop off on 3 of then while the 4th had none. This is what winter salting does to your brakes.

      How many of us have this very important tool? A tyre pressure gauge will pay by itself in a very short time in increased fuel economy.

      Guide To Select Essential Home Garage Tools - A Must For All DIY's

      Another toy arrived today from China today. This is the same tool that is rebranded as Sealey and sold as British quality for 8 times the Chinese price. This impact tool is used to extract the diesel injectors on the TDI engines and fits all Bosch and several other injectors.

      My Ctek XS 7000 battery charger gave up after 6 or 7 years. Today I got this one, a 15A charger that reads out the battery voltage and offers a quick start with flat batteries. Quite big in size, 22X28X14 cm. I charge my 100A starter battery about once a month in the winter months just to avoid low cranking power.

      I hade a visit last weekend from some friends of mine from Germany who came over to have their Multivan treated with Lanolin. They came with a small gift of tools, 6-19 mm for me and something to drink while working with the tools.
