Why is it no matter what job i want to do I invariably need to buy a new tool to do it. Do you ever reach a stage where you have all the necessary tools or does this just go on forever?? [emoji389] [emoji389] [emoji389]

But you can never have too many tools! Got to have back ups of stuff just in case... and I do *need* three torque wrenches.

In my experience, eventually you reach the stage where you own two of some tools because you couldn't find the first one! :oops: Or you reach the point where you start thinking you need a bigger shed/garage to put them all in!

I had all the hand tools I need so I started on the power tools of which I now have some duplicates. Then I started on welding/metalwork stuff - MMA then MIG then TIG and all the associated gubbins.


I just got a couple of lab grade benches (1500x750 each) and am on the lookout for a pillar drill, lathe and milling machine. Low and behold I can barely move in my garage now so I'm having that doubled in size. No doubt I'll discover some other equipment that I need shortly after that happens.


Moral of the story: once you've got a full deck you'll just move on to the bigger, better toys. :-)
