    Tool Talk

    In honor of father's day...
    What is your most used tool?
    What just gathers dust?
    What interesting tool do you have that isn't so common?

    For me, I use my compound miter saw all the time.
    I have a rotozip spiral saw that has seen about 10 minutes of action.
    Kreg pocket hole jig has been very handy on a number of projects.

    Re: Tool Talk

    Yesterday I was working on my car, and dropped nuts, sockets, and various other things into and thru the engine bay.

    So right now I am loving my telescoping light with magnetic head. I was able to reach under with it and grab all that stuff with the magnet. Saved me from getting down on the concrete and crawling on my belly like a reptile about 10 times yesterday. And even the Craftsman version is <$10. Awesome.

    Who needs tools when you have a roll of duct tape.

    Sawzalls are dead useful. Least used miter saw.

    Re: Tool Talk

    My cordless drill, socket set, cordless buffer, and Leatherman get used the most by far

    My soldering iron has sat there unused since an architecture studio class in college (stained glass sculpture project).

    I'll probably have a lot more use and will probably buy a lot more tools when we buy our house - something goes wrong in our apartment we just call maintenance for most things.

    Those cut-off wheels made for angle grinders. Best invention ever. I don't remember them being around when I was in high school. I sure could have used them when having to fix the rusted exhaust on my car.

    Re: Tool Talk

    Spring loaded punch set is probably my favorite tool that most people don't no exists. Much faster and easier than going around with a hammer and regular punch. Got it from acme tools prolly 5 years ago.
