Launch Diagun Scan Tool
— It covers all makes and models, especially the European lines I specialize in such as Saab and Volvo.

iATN Archives and Chat Room — First stop on code or symptom retrieval, sometimes before customer even arrives at the shop (with phone interview data).

Nussbaum 2.32 HEL Twin-Post Clear Floor Hoist — This 25-year-old hoist has served faithfully, and as a bonus, either arm set can be lowered or lifted independently to tip vehicles a bit (such as draining oil — customers love that feature!).

Renegade Hot Water Parts Washer — It cleans very well and the water/soap does not injure my skin nor put off obnoxious and dangerous fumes as solvent washers can do.

Bernz O Matic Mini Map/Oxygen Torch — This mini torch has such a small tip that it can get in to loosen bleeder screws and small fasteners where a larger torch couldn’t reach or would be overkill. It gets plenty hot with the oxygen mix.
