    i have a serious addiction...

    just bought another 100 dollars worth of tools off of Matco because i get 60% off

    it's all car related tools and not general tools. help me stop! the 10mm valve adjustment tool is useful because i set a lot of valve lash on hondas.
    I <3 G60.

    0.5mm Oversized Stainless valves and bronze guides available. Pm me please.

            I can't stop buying parts for the car.

            Wes, tools are a great investment. It's not like you're seriously wasting your money. If you are making automotive a career, then you're on the right track.

              100 isnt alot for Matco. haha, Sleepycb7 could have put a huge down payment on a house for what he spent on a tool box.

                  Tools are a good investment but w/ all things comes moderation; just be sure that everything tool buy is going to get used! It is tempting though, 60% off! Wish I had access to that!

                    yea, don't sweat it dude. I spend almost that much every week or two on tools between Mac and Matco, and I don't get the discount either...

                    But when I was in school I got 50% off anything from Mac, so I maxed out my Mac Card at $2600 and got plenty of stuff.

                      I cant stop buying armrests and headrests.

                      Including the ones that were in my car when i bought it, i have like 5 armrests and maybe soon to be 4 sets of headrests...

                      Its not that i want them, just no one will buy them lol. And tools are useful. Once you start buying doubles or buying tools just to stash them...then you have a problem.

                        i think ive spent about 1600-1700 total on tools and my lime green tool box. it's a deal and i dont make bank at the machine shop. i get paid around 100 bucks a week. talk about slave labor which is why i rely on side jobs (and i get a lot of side jobs, clutch jobs, cylinder heads)

                        id quit already but they have a lift at work as well as my project cb7 and project bmw e30
