Do you have a favourite tool, or tools?

Something that you couldn’t live without, maybe?

I meant yes! I want them all! I have a ton of tools and would go nuts without them. I'm constantly adding more and believe me I use them.

OT as all get out, but I can't resist. Read the status under satx56 above (Assuming this thread isn't old enough that it's changed) and ponder this response. Silly me here is what it says: ~~When flying pigs attain light speed~~

It will be an Einstynian Event.

I will probably be divesting myself of tools when we retire because there are some jobs I'm not planning on doing then. Like mowing, moving snow house repairs, etc. I will be acquiring other tools, hopefully. A CNC lathe and perhaps a CNC milling machine. Some good woodworking tools. It all depends on where we end up and what's available locally that I can use without having to buy.

Pretty much every tool I have is indispensable. I also plan on getting more, my husband, who has NEVER heard of perfume, buys me tools for every occasion.

LOL...really live without....Ahh No. Most likely hubby and I will just add more. They do come out with some really cool tools. I love tools.

I would hate to live without any of our power tools. Really...to have to go back to manual. That would stink.

You sound like a kindred spirit! I can spend hours in a home improvement store looking at tools.

Nope, not a one, in fact I have duplicate tools scattered around the house because there are no kids around the house to go get them when I need then. Also, if i need some thing I don't have Home Depot, Lowes and the SIL are within a 5 minute drive. OH and SIL delivers.

If I never work on my car again it will be too soon. Not really sure why I keep buying more tools. However I can not go into a hardware store and not buy something for the toolbox.
