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.)
