Yea application specific tools are very expensive. When I was into rebuilding Harley Davidson engines and Transmissions every tool was application specific to the tune of around 5000 Bucks. Yea thats 3 zeros! They only take up space in a 24" by 36" X 8" steel cabinet on my shop wall.

To me, it made more sense to invest in tools and do my own work for their cost plus parts rather than paying a shop their full bore labor prices plus their markup on all the parts....finished job both ways, but I'd rather had it cost less and own some tools in the end....

I agree 100%. My last option is to pay someone else to do work on my offroad toys. My Daily drivers now thats a different story. For some reason I deplore working on cars and trucks and will take them in to be fixed. Hell I won't even change my own oil anymore. Must have something to do with age!
