Ok, three things....

1) Life's too short to use cheap tools. If you think tools are too expensive, wait till you see how expensive the thing you just rounded-off is.

2) A nifty trick for Ducati's is that the exhaust header tends to run right underneath the drain plug. Oil will cover that pipe and smoke like h*ll as it burns off. A friend pointed out a strategically placed piece of tin-foil makes a disposable shield to prevent smokage.

3) Who's going to be the first to try this with a Ducati???... ;-)

I, too, used to think the same. If you do any amount of serious work, however, they're indespensible. After a while, your skin gets stained, starts to crack due to use of harsh cleansers all the time, no to mention the wife doesn't want any of that business anywhere near her (if you know what I mean). If the phone rings, you grub up the phone. If you need to find something in a manual, you grub up the manual. Get the gloves, be a happy camper. Even for small jobs...it's all of like $.10. --Chris
