    I'm still having a problem with photos. I have to pick 5 to get one every time. I've tried to post my latest article 3 times but it's just posting off into the ether and I can't find it.

    Hi Marshall - you can contact support at info@wrenchway.com or email me directly at mark@wrenchway.com. As shown in the screenshot, the photo size is limited to 5MB which is a pretty large file. Email me and we can talk through how you can shrink your photos or diagnose whether some other error is going on.

  • Top Shop Challenge: Who has the coolest toolbox in your shop? Tell us about it. Better yet, show us some pics.

    Our best toolbox goes to MARK! Mark has been a crucial part of team Wendle for 9,592 days … over 26 years! He has a large 4 section Snap-on toolbox that is about 15 years old filled with various tools, supplies, and even some refrigerated snacks. We all know a technician’s toolbox not only says a lot about who they are, but the work they do as well. Mark keeps his toolbox organized and stocked with all the right tools, which is a great reflection of his experience, success, organization, and work ethic! We appreciate all of Mark’s hard work (and cool toolbox) that has helped him meet so many of our customers’ needs over the years. Thank you for letting us showcase your kick-ass toolbox, Mark!

    Top Shop Challenge: What do you feel needs to change in order to attract more kids into our industry?

    One thing that's important to remember is that the automotive industry has totally changed since a lot of the experienced technicians began their careers. It's not just the technology and machinery that has changed drastically, but the whole process of attending school and obtaining tools has gotten to be a lot bigger of an investment.

    Vehicles have reached a point that kids are not getting to work on them in the garage with Dad anymore except for maybe an oil change. Sometimes Dad isn't even around. At this point I think that it is critical that they get exposure at the high school level. That's the earliest Auto Shop is offered, This being my 1st year as a teacher I've taken in anything that anyone has offered. We are currently getting ready to do a head gasket on 2006 Toyota Camry, we have re-sealed oil pans, done a ton of oil changes, brake jobs, things like that. The main problem we run into, is on a limited budget, tools and some specialty machines that it would be great to be able to familiarize the kids with.

    Based on a WrenchWay poll, the majority of technicians would rather work a 4-day, 10-hour work week versus the traditional 5-day, 8-hour work week. In our latest WrenchWay Buzz, we discuss how shops that adapt to this new schedule could open up their capacity and increase their productivity.

    Whether it is a WFH or in person type role, I believe that 4-10's reign supreme over the traditional 5 8's. To put myself mentally back into the environment of having to drive to the shop and be there in person to wrench, most of my 5 8's ultimately did turn into 10 hour days, where I was simply waiting for the traffic to die down before heading home for the evening. Once you're in the zone and working, the additional two hours can come and go without even knowing it. Allowing the flexibility of the third day off allows more time to recharge which is an added bonus.
