Radiator shop equipment consists of, a Hydraulic Lift to lift and position the radiator while working on it and test. A Boil Out Tank or a really good HOT pressure washer can be used instead, personally I do not like boil out tanks. Flux is need on a daily basis along with rolls of solder. Its been said and it is true that a radiator man either has a good forklift or a bad back. A good vent fan lets you breath which is good. Other items like long handle wire brushes, sandblaster, oxy propane torch. Paint booth built out of plywood.
