Thanks William its good advice and something I’ve actually been keeping in mind. I’ve been wanting a new drill for a while but I keep reminding myself the old one works and that until I can articulate why I NEED that new 18V Milwaukee kit I shouldn’t be buying it.

Need was how I ended up with the jigsaw because I had a sewing table to build for my wife which meant cutting a hole in the table top which meant the jig saw. That table is teaching me the need for lumber that is properly square and true which has me thinking about jointing and planing.

So maybe the better question is when you think about all the tools that inhabit your workshop that I don’t own what are the most valuable and why do you find them valuable to your work? I think part of my challenge is trying to figure out how tools that I’ve never owned or worked with personally fit into the picture.

But yes William is spot on. Unless you have a projects that requires that tool to complete its a toy not a tool.
