Mechs: What's Your Favorite Aircraft Tool?

Tue Feb 22, 2005 12:42 pm

As the topic says what is your favorite tool? I'm mainly talking about tools that you own but wouldn't mind hearing about unusual bigger tools that your employer owns. Also what cool tools have you modified or made for those instances when there just isn't the right tool for the job?

I'd have to say that mine is my Snap-On tools 6" reversible safety wire pliers with the tigerwave jaws. They fit in pretty tight places and the tigerwave jaw doesn't nick the wire like diamond toothed jaws do.
Another favorite is the MAC 120 degree angle grinder. Small but very powerful and the angle of the head allows it to reach areas a straight or 90 grinder can't reach.

I've made a lot of tools but my favorite and probably most often used is a 727 gear pin with a about a 4" long piece of 1" round brass on the end for a brass hammer. There's also the 2X4 with a handle carved on one end for PRSOV changes. It comes in handy on most PRSOVs but it was indispensable on the L-1011 PRSOV.

Too many to list, but one '"tool" that really stands out is a set of 11 X 17 inch hand-drawn diagrams ( which we laminated for durability ) of 737 overheat elements superimposed on a top-view 737 sillouette. Drawn in different colors with each diagram showing each loop in isolation ( left wing body, right wing body etc ) with each element labeled and connection points shown in their approximate location, and with it's connecting rack pins shown at the M279. Really handy for fast, and easilly readable wringing out of loops in dark E&E bays.

Ahem....Disclaimer: "for reference only"

I also made a set of long-reach ( 12 inch ) pin/socket connectors in various pin/socket sizes ( using stiff wire with heat shrink ) for connecting hard to reach racks to multimeters ( or jumping ) without having to yank adjacent boxes for room for my arm.

not a tool but use of a tool................
we had an excellent JT3 & 8 powerplant engineer (now sorry to say deceased) who had one eye injured in a hunting accident in such a way that it was completly white.
We where often called on to evaluate engines and do boroscope inspections, so he would arrive at new customers with the boroscope in hand and ask

"So are we buying or selling this engine............. you chose the eye to use"

PS An apprentise is a good tool to clean up spills and open stuck toilet valves and motors.

My favorite tool used to be my leatherman wave until one day I shocked the crap out of myself. On the RJ's there is a slot next to the contacts on the sidewall lights you have to press to get the bulb out. Thats what I get for not paying attention :-0

I have this Snap-On right-angle screwdriver with a one-way bearing in the handle, it comes with #2 Philips, slotted and Pozi-drive tips. The amount of torque I can put through that thing onto a screw head is amazing. I used it once to remove the fuel tank access panels from a DC-3. Those screws had been in there for years and years, but this s/d got them out for me.

Sorry Mag lite fans, but you should ditch them . I have had several, and each one had intermittent connections in them , and each was not bright enough.
Hands down, the best I`ve seen is my Makita 7.2 volt flashlight. Far brighter than a Maglite, it can reach the horizontal stab on a Dash 8 on a rainy night, and you can actually see damage on the boots! A rotating head and the fact that you can stand it up or lie it down and it stays in place makes it great for hands free work. However, it has one drawback- the plastic does not like skydrol. But trust me, it blows away anything Maglite makes. And 10 years of nightshift backs that up.
As for real tools, the Snap-on T-handle ratcheting screwdriver is great. The torque you can get on a screw is great, and the angle of your wrist is far more comfortable. Try one out!

How about the Surefire A2 Aviator flashlight? I have one I use.


3 LED's for long battery life and one bright bulb to light up the tip of a 747 tail at night.

The downside? Expensive and the batteries are specific type, Not like AA's or C cells.
I get them in batches inside of ordering them when I need it.

Use the high beam to light up the range of a 747 tail, that will last only a hour. The low beam lasts a long them using the LED's.

I have to say its a tie between my AA cell mag light(fits in my mouth, so I have both hands), and my Snap-on "pistol-grip" ratcheting screwdriver with the anti cam-out bits. These are the REAL DEAL. Any one who says BFH scares me @#$$#@less. I have witnessed too many hacks destroy an item, making it 10 times for the poor soul who has to fix the damage. That being said----nothing like a 48 ouncer to "budge" that corroded for-god-knows-how-long part. The flank-drive wrenches are great, but the mar the surface of al. B-nuts. I work on scuba dive gear as well, and those wrenches get loose some totally stripped hoses, etc. I don't think there are any bigger butchers than a diver getting ready to go in.

I`ll add another great purchase- Snap-on "stubby" wrenches. These things are great. I do a lot of pitot static work, and these short wrenches are the best for working behind the panel. Just try and swing a standard length 9/16 or 11/16 around behind the panel and you'll know what I mean. They are long enough to loosen any AN fitting unless some twit graunched it on with his Craftsman wrench. Well worth every penny. Other companies make them, too, it's the length that matters, not the manufacturer.

Hey Avt007,
I already have. That is why my light is taken from the holster by the lamp end ONLY!! My rule of thumb is simply not to grab the tapered end unless my hands are cleaned--preferably with alcohol. Skydrol is not the only fluid I don't want in my mouth.
AS for tools, I bought a set of ratcheting "T" handles from Snap-on. They have been great for some very hard to reach jobs. My "stubby" wrenches are used all the time too.

I thought maglites were technically not approved because they are not built with a cage around the bulb. I know almost every mechanic has used/uses them, but has anyone ever got their " hand slapped " if an FAA inspector caught them? If this is true, maybe LED lights are also questionable. I work on cars now, and for the money, Sears sells LED glasses that , even though not the brightest, beats having a lamp in your mouth.For a larger lamp, I am very happy with the larger 12v-14.4v-18v lamps that use the battery packs.Long life, very bright, and rechargeable!

Best tool is hard to say, most useful tools in my box are probably,
- Boeing spanner
- Ally drifts
- Big Craftsman GS
- Snap on ratchet rings
- Pneumatic duct tool !!!
As DL757md says, very useful for changing PRSOV's, especially when a/c is AOG !!
To anyone who says Aircraft mechanics are just glorified car mechanics, i'd like to see one of them change a pre-cooler in a 757 pylon or a PRSOV, when your outside or inside, its hot the ducts are a pain in the ass to close up too get the clamp round, your jamming your fingers and bleeding everywhere, your sweating like crazy, handling agents keep asking you 'how long, can you estimate????', !!!!!
on top of that, you have to keep putting DC4 on the e-seals so they stick in the ducts and make sure they stay there, make sure you dont drop anything down the fan air duct, not to mention the HP2 and 6 !!!!
When youre changing pneumatic components on old aircraft with dirt in the ducts making it hard to slide things around, i cannot explain how hot and frustrated you can get, patientce and perseveerance is the key !!!! trust me ive been there 4 times already in my career, not to mention many times in the hangar !!

Quoting HAWK21M (reply 38):


I've been through 3 Maglites. 1 black and 1 blue ones, both double A's
Black one got worn out from constantly turning it on/off by the head and it fell out of my pocket twice.
Similar thing happened to the blue one except it didn't break, it had scuffs and scratches all over it, lost it when I was moving.

I still have one new blue double A's maglite I haven't used yet and one black maglite D-cell which I use around the house for night time.

And this Surefire A2 flashlight, I started using it recently and can't speak for it's long term but I can say it's well made and built.
It has a rear button for high beam aim which I would use to take a glance at something high on the aircraft for a short time, I can lock it to high beam too, same goes for low beam too.

The aim is good. When you roll a maglite on a machined surface, you see the beam point rolls in a oval or round like pattern and it varies with every maglite. The A2 doesn't.

It just feels a hair lighter than the maglite.

And it has one thing the maglite doesn't do well with, a clip.
I could put it in my front shirt pocket with the clip on and it wouldn't fall out when I hang inverted. Sure beats the maglite cheesy clip it comes with that always falls off rather easily.

According to the chart the A2 came with, it has 50 mins useable high output beam, or 20 hours useable low output beam.
And it uses two SF123A batteries.

When you spend $185 for a flashlight, you tend to keep a close eye on it. I've got a Stinger Streamlight and will never go back to the Mag.
