If you are like me, then every time you watch one of those car tv shows, or a build video online, you see something in the corner of the shop that you would just love to have in your own shop. I’m not talking about another project car, I’m talking about some tool or machine that you would just die to have. Sometimes the tool or machine is ultra cool, and you’ve seen people use them, but wouldn’t have a clue as to how to use it yourself. Or at least, not very effectively.
For me the list of tools I’d love to have is long. I’m talking several power tools, a lot of sheetmetal working equipment, and then heavy hitters specifically for fabricating parts for chassis etc. But there are also small tools that I see on a regular basis and want as well. It’s non-stop for me really, so I’m hoping it is for you too, or I might need to see a doctor.
If I had to list my top tools or machines I would probably gravitate towards a plasma cutting system or sheetmetal working tools, although a Bridgeport or other small mill would be cool too. Hell, I don’t know I want it all!
What would you really want if you could choose any one tool or machine for your home shop?
