    I thought this might be a good topic to discuss tools that are not often used, but when you need them they are impossible to do without.

    One of my go to tools especially now that my eyes aren't so good any more is one of these;

    I have one for metric threads as well.

    The other tool that does not get a lot of use, but, when I need it I don't want to think about being without it is a thread restorer kit. I picked one of these up at sears a few years ago on sale for $39.00. Notice it is US made and is very similar to the kits on the snap-on trucks.

    What tools do you recommend?

    One of my favorite things in my shop is cutting fluid. Can't believe that for years I tried to use pretty much anything but for drilling etc. My other favorite is a set of stubby wrenches. I also scored a set of snap-on punches one time at an estate sale. Freakin love them
