It's All About the Tools

Capri Tools is dedicated to people, passion, and quality. The automotive industry often attracts people who appreciate cars. The creativity that goes into innovating and engineering cars draws in those who love tinkering with engines: mechanics. Many mechanics get started by restoring older cars, taking them from the junkyard to the garage and, finally, to the road.
At Capri Tools, we regularly partner with trusted YouTube personalities who use our tools to follow their passion, including mechanics. This month, we talked to Tony the Technician, a mechanic with 28,000 subscribers. He started his channel by creating videos to share the process of restoring and upgrading his 1985 Camaro. The venture has since morphed into a platform on which Tony offers tips and advice. He also makes videos reviewing a variety of tools, including Capri Tools.
Each video opens on the young mechanic sitting next to his toolbox ready to speak to the audience. A natural orator, Tony addresses the audience with ease, walking the viewer through his projects and reviews.
Although his audience primarily consists of people who are familiar with tools, he is good at distilling information down so anyone can follow regardless of their skill level.
Tony’s videos are peppered with his experience, feedback, suggestions, comparisons, and how-to. He combines detailed views of each tool with visual aids integrated into each video. One video might find Tony sifting through a complex user manual to explain the various functions of a probe, while another features him sitting in front of a computer while sharing the screen and walking viewers through an online shop.
Tony has over seven years of professional experience as a mechanic, but he has been fixing cars a lot longer. We appreciate his honest, conversational, and easy-to-understand reviews — his style works for amateur and professional mechanics alike.
