Favorite Tool

Thu Mar 13, 2008 3:13 pm

Out of the tools you have in your garage, what is your favorite and why is it? There is no limit so the appropriate term would be "sky is the limit". So share your tolls and your stories.

My favorite: I love my sockets. Very durable and useful. I can use them for everything I need to do.

My high-heeled boots. My hammer is well nigh useless, so my boots work a treat....besides, they're always in my room so I don't have to go searching the garage for the hammer!

The Fubar. Pretty good at destroying anything, except hard drives. Took me a while to destroy two hard drives with it, but destroying a hard drive in itself is pretty difficult. They are built like black boxes. If you have something made of wood, glass, etc. though, it will not survive the Fubar.

Another one is my tire thumper. Serves as a tire gauge and as crow bar plus many more. If I can find a pic I will post one.

So MCO. As a German why do you spell tyre 'tire'? You know, as a European you can get tired but you cannot get tyred. What's with the thumper bit? Have you got some racing rabbits to pit against the racing pigeons that some people have in the UK? (BTW, anybody who keeps racing pigeons is usually a tyred Northerner) Perhaps that is why you started this tread?

Mind you, I have got some wonderful racing goldfish down here in Salisbury. When you throw food in the pond you would not believe the speed thay travel at.

Husqvarna K 1250. My best friend laying paver stone & slate in the summer. It's got some serious kick to it though and I've seen it bite a few people who aren't careful with it. It makes a really nice cut in slate without fracturing it.

My dad owns 5 of those and he loves them. It seems a good carpenter never throws away his tools.

Here is my airliners.net definition:

Someone that can provide a quality answer on a particular thread; i.e ANCflyer would useful on a military tank tactic thread and UH60 would useful on a Auto rotate thread for maneuvering a helicoptering after it loses its engines.

I have learned the hard way and if someone ffels that way about me, then I am happy. If not, then I am still happy.

One who lacks the mental capacity to know he is being used. A fool. A cretin. Characterized by low intelligence and/or self-steem.

Example: That tool doesn't even know she's just using him.
