    My favorite tool is my brain. It's usually handy, runs on almost any fuel, and it makes my life much easier. My customer's lives too. I find my brain interesting - I enjoy the way it works and it often surprises me with what it an do. My second favorite tool is my hands. All other tools come in a far-down-the-list fourth or lower.

    The question I had for everybody is what is YOUR favorite tool?
    Or what is a new tool that has been developed that you know of, that makes everybody's life easier?
    OR what tool or equipment do you know of that is just plain out interesting?

    Reason I ask is because we have a project to present to the class about a tool that we are aware of, that is great to use, and explain its basic functionality.

    It could be gauges, meters, leak detectors, schrader valve removers, I don't know pretty much anything.
    Hopefully you guys can help me with some ideas, thanks!

    It can bend up to 1 1/8" soft copper. the less joint in a line the better the install...
