    I did see the error in my ways... They are good for assembling the older coax connectors, maybe some EGT leads/disconnects, coax feed through, sometimes for mounting switches and circuit breakers

    Hose grip pliers on cannon plugs; dikes on coax. I get it.

    Steve wins the tool needed for today with the Johnson Bar. Removed a panel from the bottom of the DC-3. 176 screws and 25 of them had to be worked on to get them out. The bolts were easy with an air ratchet but I need my own. When I find the guy that put those screws in...haha.

    The Ole JB will gather dust for months. But when you NEED it, it is the ONLY tool that will get the job done.

    Grab its are also very very handy. They wear out, but that's my second line of defense.

    I have the Tatco set with the 1 1/2, 2, 3 inch yokes. It's a pretty penny, but Tatco is just a good squeezer. Those yokes has served me well.

    Thanks for the replies. The set plus a 4 inch. That Tatco is exactly what I was considering.

    Any suggestions on on jumbo wrench sets? Not looking to spend the money of the tool truck. 1 5/16" - 2 3/8". Looking at the Ironton/Klutch at Northern Tool since they have the best price point.
