  1. @003Mexicano I have no personal experience with Snap-On tools, but I can tell you that there’s been many occasions when we’ve been filming on the weekend and we needed a tool–a Sears store was accessible and we got our tool quickly. Due to my relationship with the Sears Blue Tool Crew, you won’t be seeing anything on my show that’s not sold at Sears.

  2. Congratulations on having such a great set up. Question though, is that compressor you have a two stage that can be used for painting? Also, I’m digging that rotor and caliper clock you have back there.

  3. @reallunacy Thanks! It isn’t, but you can learn more about the Craftsman Professional 27 gal air compressor by going to sears(dot)com/tools and searching for p/n 00916474000

  4. @motorztv From what I understand their torque wrenches aren’t covered (their considered measuring instruments)…speaking of which I need to buy a torque wrench!

  5. @motorztv I was also told that most of the tools are in sets only, so there was no way to get just single items anymore. its went from great service, to “sir, thats too many tools to warranty” (under 15 tools is too many?), to, sorry, you engraved them or sorry not avail. anymore, or we dont sell them single, sorry. can you talk to someone @ sears for me please! I watch every show you guys make, I am planning a garage renovation and like this episode. I am just skeptical now considering

  6. That is the way a shop should be. Everything should be organized, so you can find whatever tool you are looking for when the need arises. Also I love how you all keep the tools nice and clean. It helps keep the boxes clean too, in some shops they don’t clean the tools so rust, grease and dirt are all up in the tool box. All you need is a lift and an alignment rack, but you’d probably need more space for those.

  7. Nah, you’d definetly need more space cause I don’t think your roof is high enough for an alignment rack or a lift. Also you’d be pretty crammed with them.

  8. @suddnstar Thank you for watching, and the for the great feedback! Most of these tools were new at the time we filmed this episode, however we always clean them up after we use them so they are all still looking great!

  9. Love the show. Recently got a 2005 Mustang GT and I’ve been watching a lot of your episodes. I’ve been a mechanic for about 15 years and love the work. most of my hand tools are craftsman (started my career at a sears) but my air tools are snap on. Like you said, sometimes I need to replace a tool and Sears is handy when the parts truck isn’t. I’ve been trying to look up a set of E3 plugs, but my parts house desn’t carry them… any suggestions other than summit? I’ve got a set of chambered mufflers on now with a cai, programmer, a ram air hood, as well as some show-me stuff for this winter. Keep up the good work and I’ll send pics when I can :)

  10. I’ve done some work to the interior of my garage, check out the progress and maybe get an idea or two (?) Search: ‘Finished Garage with 2 Post MaxJax Lift’ on You Tube or Google to see my video
