Tools & Equiptment

One thing about this type of shop is that you can never have enough tools & equipment! I have been collecting tools since my dad presented me with my first wrench set when I was about 13, and have never quit. When he passed, I acquired his tools that he used in his body shop which was of course was a thrill for me not only to have, but to be able to use them in my business as well.
