    Re: Surgeons Tools...

    Ok, second on from the left looks like a tool to hold back w/ basket strainers, the third from the left I believe is for installing the spuds on a radiator, as for the rest I am pretty much lost.

        Third from left looks like it might be some kind of impact wrench for use with a hammer.

        Heck, I've forgotten what some of these things are.

        Fifth from left is a faucet nut splitter. I use the new Mil-Rose saw for that purpose, with the cup to catch debris. Got to use it the other day and it works well.

        The wrench to hold strainers in place has been replaced, at least in my toolbox, by the Ridgid faucet installer wrench, which also has a setup to hold strainers.

        Fourth from left looks as though it would be great when replacing U-joints under the truck.

        That first one looks familiar . . . too big for an internal spud wrench, I'd think. Cleanout plugs?

          And for whoever, please post pics if you can of your service toolbox or bag.

          Might give us all ideas on how to do the job better.

                The one on the right is a spud remover.

                    If so, I tried one and found that it flexes if you apply enough torque.
                    Ever have that problem?
                    It flexes on me too but I've found the flexability to be acceptable, great tool.

                      Here's my service bag, weighs 41 lbs and is a ridgid jobmax bag. I've had the bag 2 years now and it's held up very well.

                          That's a good carry too. Similar to mine. Keeps the stuff upright where you can find it. 2 things:

                          1) What do you use the green clamps for?

                          2) What kind of pliers are those with the black handles on the left?

                          Thanks.

                            1)anytime I need an extra hand. Has come in handy more than once. If I'm soldering a pipe and need to balance it, I'll use the clamp as a counter weight for example.

                            2) That's the husky combo pliers. One side is needlenose and the other side is lineman's. Not as a strong as the dedicated tools but I haven't broken my pair yet.

                              Need some small copper cutters. You got to have somewhere I'm sure. What's 2 spaces to the left of the torch?

                                That's a milwaukee heavy duty 1/4" right angle attachment. Just to the left of that is something that is blue and white. That's the mini copper cutters.
