I often get asked about different tools I'm using in our Sprinter Build and figured I would highlight a few of my Must Have tools in a short video series.
This video highlights my Deburring tool...this tool is soooo handy to clean up edges when drilling holes for Rivetnuts, Plusnuts or just running wires etc.    
Hope you find these videos handy for your builds

Extending the drivers side wire chase board out a bit more to clear the wiring.

Mike hates being on camera so he used the router to whip up a "Home Improvement Wilson Fence Mask".....now he's ready to be in front of the camera lol.

Nice build!  How do you load the mass of images?  Surely not one at a time.

BTW:  I think the butterflies in post #2 are Painted Ladies not Monarchs.

I upload my photo's to SmugMug in batches at the end of each work day then manually link them into the build thread. 

 

Thanks on the clarification....very cool!

Marine Grade Wire & Heat Shrink Terminals vs Automotive Grade.
 
In this video I highlight the differences between Marine grade wire & heat shrink crimp terminals vs standard automotive grade. I also cover the difference between standard crimping tools and specialized heat shrink crimp tools.
 
I use marine grade crimps and wire almost exclusively in all of my builds. This is the 3rd video in a series where I'm highlighting tools, materials and techniques I use while building out our vehicles.
 
Hope you find this information useful in your builds as well.

Just looking back on some of the early posts on this topic.

Great work on the Sprinter.

Also that story about the Winchester '73,great.

 

Back in the late 60s early 70s I owned 3 different  model '73s.

One carbine 44.40 cal.not many of this model made, and 2 rifles 44.40 and a 38.40 cal.

I even went of some deer hunting trip with one.

Great firearms. More for the history then anything else.

Thanks for posting the story,even if I didn't view it until today.

Awesome work as usual. I've been up in that area twice but I was unaware of the Bog Hot Springs. Next time! Added a couple tools to my wish list also.

Getting ready to install one of the new JBL speakers in the rear panel.  There will be 4 of these in the rear of the van.
