TM reader and photo pool member Problemsolver posted pics of a variety of tools he came across at the EAA’s Airventure show, which ended this weekend.  The platform pictured above folds up small, but raises high enough to reach the vertical stabilizer on a King Air.  Of course, I’m sure you can imagine numerous uses outside of the aviation world.  We can!

Check out Toolmonger’s photo pool for additional cool tools from EAA, and if you get the chance, check out the show next time ’round.  I made it out once a number of years ago, and it’s a sight to behold.  Imagine miles and miles of aircraft, plus tools and people who know how to use ’em.  At the risk of dating myself, I saw heard felt the Concorde depart a few times when I was there, and walked around underneath it.  (To get a feeling of how cool this show is, check out the rest of Problemsolver’s photos of the event.)

    I was there.

    Truly is a site to behold. For toolmongers there are good deals to be had from Miller, Lincoln, Snap-On, etc. etc.

    For instance, Lincoln had a deal on a 140 C welder… $550 I think.

    Plus if you bought the spool gun and the welder, you got a free cart. Basically get the welder, cart and spool gun for the price of the welder.

    Yep, but this was a *way* cooler picture, and I was looking for something to call out the great series of photos that’s in the pool. Don’t miss the airplane lift!
