I tend to buy what ever I need to make money with in building construction, from power sreed to finish nailer, to texture/tape/plaster tools.

And at home I can take apart any mechanical project if I have to.

I lean towards big tools like skidsteers/tractors/and stuff with hydraulic levers.

I must have.
If i can buy something for 100 dollars, but buy tools to make it myself for 150 dollars, i'm buying tools, lol. Hey, who knows, i may have to make another one someday and then i'll be ahead of the game. smile

I have a drawer of oddball taps and dies because of this, lol

Riding Harleys I'm sure you have a big shop and need the room to park all of those broken down bikes. Riding a Beemer, all I need is a parking spot. grin

And when your wife asks why you need so many tools? I just point at the bikes!

Yep. I recently became addicted to Hilti cordless tools. Next is one of the jobsite radios for the shop.

Just bought a fein ocsilating tool today. It was a good price! How could I not???

While I've been home I have gone through and sorted stuff, hauled junk to the dump and sorted through all my tools...

I got rid of duplicates and managed to whittle the pile down enough that it all (mostly) fits in one rolling tool chest... except for table saw, bench grinder, lathe, etc... All the big shop tools fit on one shelf. So now everything is in the breezeway shed.

I did a good job of whittling down the pile. But I still have one drawer in the chest that is dedicated to Allen wrenches. Lol

But I got rid of enough that I emptied a Craftsman tool chest and I passed it to my son in law.

All of my precision measuring tools... Calipers, OD mics, depth mics, indicator, etc... are in a plastic tote in a closet in the hall. I didn't want to leave them in the tool chest exposed to temp extremes and humidity.

It was easier than I thought to let go of some stuff... Who needs a half dozen hammers, staple guns, and socket sets?

I have wrenches up to 1.5" and I'm not sure I'll ever need them again. I doubt I'll ever set up Acme-Gridleys again. But I couldn't turn loose of them. Maybe they'll come in handy for working on the tractor I plan on buying. Lol

Just moved to a condo for retirement reasons. Gave all my tools to my son. Lots of withdrawal pains, except for lawn equipment. Won't miss it a bit.

Hilti makes some good stuff. You pay for it though.

My name is Jeff, and I like to know that I have the right tool for the job, even if I donít know when Iíll have a job that needs a particular tool.


Of course I like tools, every man should!

A woman can have 50 pairs of shoes in the closet, but can't grasp the concept of "The right tool for the job"! LOL
