Three OEM Tools to Invest in for your At-Home Shop


If you’ve been working on cars for a while, there comes a time when you cross over from casual hobbyist to serious at-home mechanic, the kind who knows which parts of a car are recyclable and who gives pointers to the kid under the hood at the Auto Shop. For you guys who are professional (or just bordering on it), here are three OEM tools you need to elevate your garage this summer.

Barrel fan

A barrel fan (particularly a barrel fan xtra seal) is an oscillating fan designed to heat a large indoor space. With a feature to prevent overheating, it can work in an area as large as a horse barn or garage.

This means that cooling is smooth and consistent, much like an indoor air conditioner. An OEM tools oscillating barrel fan is also portable, so you can direct air to warmer areas of your garage or shop as needed.
