The most used tool in my garage is definitely the socket wrench - either 3/8 or 1/2"

My goal is to learn how to weld so my next used tool is a welder!

I too want a welder, but living in an apartment I have to keep my tool chest as it is now at my parents
If I add a welder my dad may flip, since I keep my trailer, boat & tools there, when does one truly ever leave home

I thought about this quite a bit. The title of this thread requires that my selection be a wise choice and worthy of recommendation. It needs to be something that works exceptionally well for the task and a very good value. I think the one tool that I use on almost every project is the ...

Dogbone Rough Rider creeper

With big 5" wheels it will roll across cord, hoses and right out into the gravel of the driveway. Forgotten under the truck and driven over it will survive. Comfortable enough for that under side inspection nap. Low enough to go where fat men can not normally go. There is no equal to my Dogbone RoughRider! My most used tool.

I'm glad you posted this. I think I'm finally affluent enough (and fat, old, and stove up enough) to retire the cheap creeper I bought years ago.

My first one was a christmas gift many many years ago. I say my first. but I still have it and one at the shop too. All the old board creepers now have been retired outside to the steam cleaner pad.
You will not be disapointed!

This reminds me i need to buy a new creeper. I have a garbage one years ago that i broke some of the wheels on when it would get stuck in a crack in the driveway so i went back to the old shoulder and hip scoot thing that i do under trucks to get around lol then just kind of forgot about it.

I actually just watched that really long comparison video that they have on their site lol. Im sold im going to go get one soon, i miss having a creeper
