An American Chopper Classic... The Big FIght Over Missing Tools!

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/17/2021

If you have amassed a collection of tools to be proud of, you know that every once in a while, somebody will ask you to borrow one and you’ll either tell them about your no lending policy or very carefully lend them a tool if they’re in need, reminding them that you need them to return it because one thing usually leads to another and all of a sudden you have a void in your collection that costs a pretty penny to fill and paying for tools more than once when you shouldn’t have to is most certainly not something that most want to do.

This time, we check out a tool borrowing situation at American Chopper that has father and son butting heads as Paul Jr. snags a grinder that he claims to be his off of Paul Sr’s box and this is when the throwdown begins. In a shop atmosphere, I’m sure that everybody is lending tools back and forth and when they don’t get returned properly, I’m sure that situations like this unfold on the regular.

Did they ever get to the bottom of this tool debauchery? We will never know for sure but watching these guys clash really does have some entertainment value to it. Many of us can identify with this back and forth between father and son and this throwback is really a popcorn worthy moment to reminisce on.

Check out the clip below that had blood pressures rising on this battle over a grinder that had father and son screaming their heads off! Can you remember a situation where you ever got into an argument like this over a tool that you thought was stolen or just straight up never returned? This is the perfect example of why it might be a good idea to start marking your initials on things!
