Are memes allowed?
My late grandpa's tool collection.
Love this little vacuum but the battery died, cost same as whole unit. Gutted battery cells (has circuit that vacuum wouldn't work without and had to keep) and grafted 20v adapter onto it. Ka-chow! DeWalt 20v Super-cereal-sucker!
made a 3d printed snap-on bit holder
Oven repair guy forgot something in the broiler. I guess you can say it was a fluke.
They call me...

My family was making fun of me for having pliers on my wish list. Merry Christmas to me! 🎄

Build myself a tool cart for all my everyday hand tools. Always had my tools on a wall but this cart is so much better! If you have the space. Make it! And have your tools always by your side :)

Says it all.
I crashed my car and when I popped the hood, a SK 10mm socket appeared under the battery tray. When your car returns the tools it stole, it might be over.
NTD! Used to belong to an 84 year old former Lockheed Skunkworks engineer. He bought them for his job not realizing Lockheed provided all the tools. So it sat unused since 1977. All Vaco US-made tools before it got bought by Klein. I feel very fortunate to have received this from him.

Happy new year!
So tired of fighting my crew to keep batteries charged, so I used an old broken sawhorse to make a charging station. 1A, 2A, 4A, & 8A chargers for variety. Stagger allows me to charge any size battery on any port. Pulls 13.5A so it should run on household circuits. Has a 15’ 12ga cord.
If you’re an electrician, grab a couple of these at Lowe’s. The ability to drive Phillips and square screws without switching bits is life changing
My $200 Harbor Freight toolbox
GF got me these for Xmas! I've been wanting this set for awhile!
A friend’s uncle passed away and inherited the many tools he collected over the years. He refused them and gifted them all to me. So I made this in honour of his uncle to hang in his shop. Old guy was almost in tears.

LPT: If you have an elderly extended family member who needs help with moving/projects around the house, help them because it's theright thing to do. Also, because every once in awhile they say things like I can't work in my shop anymore, if you need any clamps you can have all of mine.

Who else agrees these are some of the greatest tools one could have? (On a budget where an impact wrench is out of reach, but you have an impact driver)

My fiancé wanted to do our stairs herself and made friends with everyone at Lowe’s during her project. The manager gave her a great deal on clearance items, all this for $120. We’re young and in our first home so this was huge for us!
Found while cleaning out Dad's workshop. Helped him quickly sort screws when breaking down old projects.
Still cheaper than the Snap-On set.

The airport was selling confiscated tools for charity. I got this small bundle for 14$!
Sister in-law and her fiance are expecting a baby and closing on a home this week that needs work. Found out his Dad took whatever tools he had and he can't get them back. Went outside when I heard that and built them a basic starters kit from extras I had in my tool boxes. Who takes his sons tools?

Craigslist find 2/2. $30. Guy said it kept sticking and was in pieces when I snagged it. Five minutes of filing. Is this considered theft?
