Rules of the game:  give us a link and a picture of a tool that, is useful...you have to defend the choice  why is it special,

And tell us how it works better than the choich

I am starting us off with the knipex, plierwrench:/

This topic may be better suited for the Darkened Recess™ than GRiSO Tech, but we'll see where it goes.  Wink 

For my contribution to the discussion, I give you the much sought after, but impossible to find TORQ-IT Speed Driver.  The piece d' resistance of any self respecting Guzzisti's toolbox.

Once broken loose, a couple few pulls on the T-handle makes short work of even the longest M5 bolt. It's like a caveman's lithium powered rattle-gun.

I have one of those pliers, handy little tool provided the caliper pistons are hollow.

So that knurled edge is supposed to grab the inside of the piston so you can remove the piston? I think I get it now. thanks,

I actually use them to turn the pistons in little increments for cleaning them. Works a treat.
