What do you keep in your toolbox?(Don't snigger!) I have to admit it is the old standbys for me, WD40 for if "It wont move but should" and Duct tape for "If it does move and shouldn't". I am pretty useless at any major DIY these days due to my stupid dodgy back. The sight of a pull saw will put my back out for days.

Re: Toolbox

I've got loads of tools. At least 3 toolboxes, drawers full of various bits an pieces, two of them cantilever metal boxes that contain nothing but spanners an various socket sets, two sets of screwdrivers, 1 flathead, 1 posidrive in wooden blocks arranged in order from largest to smallest hanging on my garage wall, hammers, drills. power tools, axes, all sorts in fact, an I use the same 2 or 3 pieces of kit all the time. I used to wonder what some blokes interest in tools was, but as I've got older, I just seem to have accumulated them an they give me a sort of comforting feeling when I'm just messin about in my garage. The fact that I never use them, or even know what half of them are for is neither here nor there, they just seem right.

I'm gonna get a big rusty vice next, that's what I'm short of.

Oh yeah, and an anvil. Always fancied havin one of them, that'd look pretty cool.

An anvil.

Re: Toolbox

No matter how many tools you have you will always need the one you have not got.

Re: Toolbox

Mine spread out from my toolbox(s) years ago, now there is little room for them all.

I don't do duct tape, glue it, screw it and if it still moves - big nails

Regardless of however many tools he owns, I can guarantee where my missing tweezers will be & despite him having an entire cantilever metal box thing full of screw drivers our butter knife always appears more fit for purpose...

Re: Toolbox

Tool collecting is more obsessive than Stamp collecting and more useful. Get a bit pissed of when friends call to borrow my "specialist tools" Because as Yorkies they are so tight to buy their own. In my workshop I try and be self sufficient and realised the other day I was better equipped than my garage workshop when I was in business.
PS got two torque wrenches one for the lower settings on bikes and a big 'un for bolts on cars. Although I had to use the big 'un on some special con rods I fitted on my Bonne.
