    After decades, I got bored of human tools. I find cow tools more exciting. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cow_Tools
    Because I like big lights, my flashlightical views lean heavily toward both the extreme bright and the extreme heft.

    Yeah Raggie, I like tools, and don't hesitate to get one when I need it. I also buy them... just in case

    Both stores typically run sales during the big holidays, and the savings can be significant. I try to buy the "just in case" tools during the holiday sales, even if I have to wait a couple of months. It's a killer to have to wait

    Went to Home Depot for some paint and a spark plug wrench. The only socket they had for spark plugs in my size was 1/2" drive. Well, all of my 1/2" stuff it at my son's house so I figured cheap 1/2" ratchet too. The cheap one was $32. So a $6 socket and $32 ratchet later…… then I started looking for a small tool box for use as a seat. The Millwalkee was $89. Now this was potentially getting expensive fast.
    The Mrs Fixer saw a Husky display with 230 tools in a box one can set on for $99. Sold!!

    And we ended up buying one of those round 5 gallon coolers as a seat for $15. The tool kit contains a lot of your basic size sockets and allen keys but also a bunch you don't normally see in those "kits" these days. Now I have several sockets with x/32 like 13/32 and 0.5mm like 5.5mm just like my dad had a long time ago plus all kinds of nut driver torx wrenches etc. It's a nice tool kit for $99.

    one of my regulars just gave me a modern variant of a Yankee screwdriver.

    Why do I want to see a picture of the actual tools? I mean I really want to see them. Please.
    Sometimes I wonder if I've purchased my last flashlight.

    Ok.

    If I pull the drawers out far enough to see everything you get 180 some tool pick up and a sore foot.
    How do I know this, you ask?
    The drawers fell out onto my foot then I had all those sockets to put away in a 100 degree shed.
    The 18 volt Ryobi fan made that task much more comfortable.


    Bottom drawer shows half. Top drawer about 1/3.


    Yet it's pretty small.


    A breaker bar came home with me in case the spark plug that led to this purchase put up a fight.
    It didn't.

    Raggae, unless you took it home in the shopping cart you carried it up front with……
    Even carrying it on a bicycle would be tough. I suppose it weighs 30 or 35 pounds.
