Default Re: Last tool you got?

To remove the front fork caps on Sherrie's '90 Virago a 17mm Allen wrench is required. Not having one that size, I dug into my bolt collection until I found one with a 17mm head, ran a nut down, then ran a quick bead with my MIG to keep the nut from backing off. Dropped the bolt head into the cap and with a 17mm deep socket & ratchet, threaded it out. This saved me a trip to the hardware store and the cost of a wrench.
