What happens if it "sproings" when you're under the car, then tries to sit you up? :eek:
Don't know what the collective expression is for mechanics but I know the term "Tackle-Tart" is used for an angler who insists on having every gadget and piece of fishing tackle in the shop.
I used to work in an administrative role at a commercial vehicle dealership and the amount of stuff I saw some of those guys had was unbelievable. Tools all bought out of their own pocket with nil input from the boss, tool chests big enough to stable a couple of shire horses and snobbery between peer groups debating whos tools etc were the best.... Imagine when a new mechanic turned up with an old beat up cantilever tool box and a couple of metal trays and all transported around the workshop on a discarded supermarket trolley that had found a new life !!!

Gearheads and tool tarts seem to be common terms. When you've been let down by a crap tool it can be a pretty unnerving experience - like a T-55 shattering as you torque down a head bolt. Not a fan of creepers, as I can go to sleep lying down within seconds!
Who remembers that massive auction of mostly unused Snap-On stuff in the UK a couple of years back? Someone's collectormania had clearly bested them.
