    Common tools and their uses..........

    Definition Of Common Tools And Their Applications:



    DRILL PRESS
    A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, splattering it against that freshly painted part you were drying.

    WIRE WHEEL
    Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the work bench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprint whorls and hard-earned guitar calluses in about the time it takes you to say, "Ouch...."

    PLIERS
    Used to round off bolt heads.

    HACKSAW
    One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle. It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes.

    VISE-GRIPS
    Used to round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand.

    OXYACETYLENE TORCH
    Used almost entirely for lighting various flammable objects in your shop on fire. Also handy for igniting the grease inside a wheel hub you're trying to get the bearing race out of.

    WHITWORTH SOCKETS
    Once used for working on older British cars and motorcycles, they are now used mainly for impersonating that 9/16 socket you've been searching for the last 15 minutes.

    HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK
    Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new disk brake pads, trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper.

    EIGHT-FOOT LONG DOUGLAS FIR 2 X 4
    Used for levering an automobile upward off a hydraulic jack handle.

    PHONE
    Tool for calling your neighbor to see if he has another hydraulic floor jack.

    SNAP-ON GASKET SCRAPER
    Theoretically useful as a sandwich tool for spreading mayonnaise; used mainly for getting dog-do off your boot.

    E-Z OUT BOLT AND STUD EXTRACTOR
    A tool that snaps off in bolt holes and is ten times harder than any known drill bit.

    TWO-TON HYDRAULIC ENGINE HOIST
    A handy tool for testing the tensile strength of bolts and fuel lines you may have forgotten to disconnect.

    CRAFTSMAN x 16-INCH SCREWDRIVER
    A large motor mount prying tool that inexplicably has an accurately machined screwdriver tip on the end without the handle.

    AVIATION METAL SNIPS
    See hacksaw.

    PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER
    Normally used to stab the lids of old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splash oil on your shirt; can also be used, as the name implies, to round off Phillips screw heads.

    PRY BAR
    A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part.

    HOSE CUTTER
    A tool used to cut hoses 1 inch too short.

    HAMMER
    Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate expensive parts not far from the object we are trying to hit.

    For example, and HOSS might agree with me on this one.

    Beer - A tool designed for distracting you from the task at hand, making you feel ok about it, gives you an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment over little or no project progress, and gives you the courage to take on projects you know you can't handle.
