Tools

Being that this will probably be a lengthy build process and since I have been able to have time to prepare, I have tried to pick up tools from several sources, thus saving me considerable money.  I bought many tools from former builders, watching tool venders' websites and buying on sale, Harbor Freight, the Yardstore and Ebay.

Luxury Purchases
I bought a pneumatic squeezer set with a 3" yoke from Cleaveland Tool.  I also bought the Sioux mini air drill and Sioux 3X rivet gun from Brown Tools.

I have learned from other builders that tools are a builders' commodity...a fact of life.  I expect to spend a lot more as the build process continues.

#8 Nutplate Jig- This is a really cool tool and will allow me to quickly drill perfect K-1000 and K-1100 platenuts for #8 screws.  These are the most common size of platenuts used for attaching the floor pans, Adel clamps, etc.
