Preferred must have tools
What tool/s is a "must have" with wrenching these days in your own collection? Recently added these to the box, a great time saver at that.

Ball link pliers.
Metric ruler.
Nice set of Allen drivers/wrenches.
Dial indicator.
JIS screwdriver set.
Pitch gage.
Nut drivers/wrenches.
Long reach glow plug wrench.
Crank lock tool.

Expensive hobby! Totally worth it. Also you can't crash a tool so why not splurge here!

As an industrial maintenance department head I own many specialty tools. The right tool for the job is Key. That said, these are my most used tools. OK the tube on the glow plug may not be most used but man is it the right tool for the job!

The wrench has one way bearings in it, good for removing feathering shafts with out damage, the other looks like a bearing press or gear puller.RIP ROMAN

An old 1 way bearing glued inside a nut used to stop a feathering spindle turning while you undo the second end screw.

Home made version of the wrench above..

To supplement the fuel tubing on the glow plug you need a 1/4 x 32 die to clean up the plug before you put it in (with the tubing). I always put glow plugs in with tubing.

Gluing (presumably JB Weld) a one-way inside a big nut - I like it.

It's a home made tool. Choose a 1 way bearing to suit your Feathering Spindle (Mine was 10mm) and epoxy it into a Nut. You way need to Drill the nut slightly to fit the bearing.

Mine was a used bearing so the whole tool was really cheap!!

A half inch drill chuck works in place of a one way bearing and is adjustable.

I don't know if it's a must have but...

I have one and it works great.

At the filed I fly at, there are both fixed wing and helis.

Got tired of the plankers "over-guesstimating" their speed.

Put's the BS to rest.

Now everyone wants to be timed on a speed run.

Hmm.

Now when some stranger comes up, you can answer the "How fast does it go?" question.

Now you need altimetry to be able to answer "How high does it go?"

But the answer to "Can I try flying it?" is still...

"No!"

Just get Futaba's GPS telemetry unit (SPS-01G) and know both speed and altitude. Oh yeah, it is rather expensive at $180 and only works with FASSTest.
