I have more tools than any 3 people should be allowed to have and my wife never says a word when I decide that I need another ‘something’. I keep one rollaway w/top box in the garage and a second 12 dwawer box on the bench. A second rollaway with top box is in the shed and ‘stuff’ on the shelves.
All of my wood tools are in the wood shop with the exception of a few hand wrenches I may need occasionally, then they are right outside the door.
I’ll tell you how bad I am about getting and not needing – I bought a new DeWalt 10” sliding compound miter saw w/laser light. I used it half a dozen time and took it to the shed because it was in my way. Except for compound cuts I can do everything on the table saw and Radial saw that I presently build. Of course compound cut are easy on the radial as well, I just don’t have to make any.
When I did work (employed) I seemed to be the only one of 8 men that had a full compliment of tools that made the job easier. The reason ? I didn’t spend 4 or 5 hours at the bar after work so I had disposable income and I managed to dispose of it on tools for ME.
probably didn’t answer your question but – - -
