THAT tool for the 'special' job!

A bit of fun for you all.

I was in the garage having a beer while working away. I had a new beer to pop.

Soo, what garage tool did I use to pop a lid off of a glass bottle? I used side cutter and nearly cracked the glass! I don't think it was the right tool but it worked.

What the tool should I have used?

What garage tools have you used for non garage jobs?





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

Please read my ring story:

Had to cut through some floor boards, no room for the circular saw so put the blade in my 9" angle grinder. Took some holding but I still have all my fingers!

I used to use my engine hoist to lift this 5" gauge steam locomotive in and out of my trailer - without the hoist it took 2 strong people to lift it, not good when you're trying to lean over the side of the trailer.







The older I get, the better I was...

In a similar situation I've used a ring ended spanner to remove a beer bottle top.

Used my car to pull out a stubborn pampus grass shortly after moving in.

Why do they call Port Harcourt "The Garden City"?...... Becauase they can't spell Stramash.

Good effort - there's nothing like a bit of engine power put to good use!
