      We have one in our shop. It works fine, but a torch still does a better job, and is faster.

      Hate seeing those piercing leads. Get some backprobes! Great video though. My top tools gotta be my fluke 88, milwaukee m12 fuel 3/8th ratchet, my big ass matco prybar, my streamlight, and my sony bluetooth speaker 😂

      You lost me at the wire piercing probes. I end up fixing tons of wires people have used piercing tools on due to corrosion...

      I used to be a diesel mechanic but I tried to buy as few tools as possible. I felt like there was no reason to use my paycheck to buy a ton of tools to make someone else money. I got paid by the hour though. I always felt sorry for you flat rate guys.

      Take those wire piercing tools and throw them in the trash. I hate following after some dickhead that used them and cause more problems than they're worth.

      A "wire piercer guy". Love it. These guys keep me fed fixing their hack work. Invest in some good connector backprobes and a circuit tester lead kit to do it properly.

      Torque sticks!? Guess he can sleep at night knowing that he could have ruined a $300-400 brake job on a customer's car just because he's too lazy to use a torque wrench. They don't really save time if you know your impact gun. Plus, they can be a safety hazard when they break.

      Probably one of the greatest tools I’ve ever bought and I use it daily is the power probe.

      Rustbelt Mechanic looking forward to it. New to your channel and what drew me in was where you work. I’m from that town but now live near Cincinnati. Looking forward to binge watching your videos.

      Ya definitely got bent over the work bench on the wire probes. Not to jump on the you-tube-hater buss, but back when your mama was changing out your dippers I was a durability truck engineer at the GM Milford Proving Grounds, and it was a death sentence to pierce a wire out in the garage. Guess ya got probed good on that one. Top tools when I was an auto mechanic an indestructible work bench and a big ass hammer... and a six foot spud bar. Same goes when I was doing heavy C and D checks for Continental Airlines. Stapleton Airport baby!

      The Pomona wire piercers are awesome. By far my favorite. I also like the long power probe piercing tools for the harder to reach wires.
