    Mine was a gift from my parents but it has to be one of the best tools in my shop. A Posi lock gear puller. I've pulled flywheels off small engines, steering wheels, broken bearings, etc. all on the first attempt a few just by twisting the threaded rod press by hand. A bit pricey but well worth the money.
    Check them out Posi lock gear pullers at Medford tools. Mine's a D-106. What's your favorite or best tool in the shop?

    I have a pair of 2500lb 6' slings. The slings are braided nylon about 1.5" wide and 3/16" thick... and very flexible. While at a machine shop auction, I purchased a large tool cabinet... these and many other items were in there. These slings have been very useful in many situations... and compared to chains, are much easier to work with.

    cheers,

    My best tool is the homemade t-post puller I acquired at a sale for $9. DH was upset cause he thought it was junk until he used it.
