Can anyone else relate?
Harbor Freight is donating all of their masks and gloves to hospitals.
Every gd time
I quit smoking crack and bought tools instead, the crack was cheaper
Are memes allowed?
Well....how many of you are great parents and let your kids play with all your tools, and how many of you are awful?
I found it in a scrap yard completely seized. She's all good to go now.
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
It’s the season
😥 Just let us enjoy it!
My late grandpa's tool collection.
Every time I get that flyer in the mail.
Says it all.
My family was making fun of me for having pliers on my wish list. Merry Christmas to me! 🎄
Finally pulled the trigger and purchased me a lift for my shop. Everything is so much easier now.
Oven repair guy forgot something in the broiler. I guess you can say it was a fluke.
my top drawer
Thought y'all might appreciate this
Apologies if this has been posted before. Gave me a little chuckle.
I see your fancy snap-on boxes and raise it with ”just throw it in the pile” -table
Is it a shitpost if its true?
For large hand tool lovers

Anyone else getting jealous of the Estate Sale finds on here.
Inherited this little guy from my grandpa
This hits home.
This is the part I hate the most after buying sockets.
My $200 Harbor Freight toolbox
Go team red.
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.
With this lockdown i finally have a good use for this.
Ex shipped off to rehab and took all the furniture. Finally got the bedroom set of my dreams.
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.
Found in my late grandfathers basement- a mint set of vintage snap-ons... they will be put to good use for generations to come, papa
My gf got me a new sticker for my box today.
Screw you? Screw ME!
My birthday/Christmas present to myself! Organization!
NTD Won at my company's Christmas party yesterday. Merry Christmas to me!
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.
They call me...
I'm not much of a carpenter, but I finally managed to build something I didn't hate
I was working at an auto shop and stumbled across this discontinued item
A chunk of rail my dad bequeathed to me. Salvaged back in 1969, he’d been using it as an anvil when he was making knives as a hobby. Now that he’s 90 he figured he’d give it to me. After a week soaking in Evaporust it’s ready for another 40 years of use.
I’m in Germany for work and stopped by the local tool distributor, I thought you guys would enjoy this ...
You know who you are
These will come in handy! My first real tools (im 13 and do alot of work around my house and work on alot of projects)
My dad told me he got me a cordless drill...
3 flute, high polish, solid carbide drill with through coolant that I made today
Specialized electronic tool here. I built an Arduino-controlled device that automatically turns on my wood shop air filtration system whenever it hears a saw run. It then turns the system off 2 hours later, totally automating my dust collection. Build/demo link in the comments.
This sub right now. Blower broke so I converted it to a flashlight.
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
NTD - Love this tape, super easy to read and its printed on the back side also
Some blue to counterbalance all the red posts
Finally got a pipe vise
Not a tool per se, but who doesn't love a new pair of coveralls?
Bought a new code reader at Harbor Freight today...
Jimmy carter is a Milwaukee guy. Some real taste there
Way she goes
First home, first workshop.
I got your names
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 :)
I mean he's not wrong
Tool wall! Finally got some of my hand tools organized. Cramped Brooklyn basement shop...

After 6 years as a carpenter, my hammer is starting to reveal my accuracy!

My son’s 5th birthday party is tomorrow and I’m giving him his first set of real tools!
Sheared the tip off of a PH2 and now it's a PH3
Looks like I need these
NTD! Does this count?
It was basically unused, but in terrible condition. I cleaned it up!
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.
These have changed the game for me. Bluetooth and super long battery life. For the first time in my life I am consistently wearing hearing protection. Made by 3m
if you know, you know
Looks like I'm buying a new addition to the Milwaukee collection!
Rate My Actual Tool Drawer
C.H. Hanson Impact drill pencil sharpener attachment

If this is where you find yourself on a Friday night, something went terribly wrong.
Clients workshop today (more pics below)
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!

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.
This simple sheet of metal is so darn useful.
This estate sale micrometer came with a little green surprise
Only 8 payments of $16 a week for this puppy
This old beauty had nine lives. Unfortunately today was the last day. She did great. Just asking for a moment of silence. Or press F. Thanks for your understanding

Leaving my current retail job for an awesome job working on gas lines. The owner of the company won’t even speak to me but my boss who taught me all I know gave this as a goodbye gift

GF got me these for Xmas! I've been wanting this set for awhile!
Spotted this 100-year-old B&D at a thrift store for $15(!), dirty, beat up, and dead. Tore it down completely, and here’s how we ended up. It even operates now!
Boss, we need new tools, You just got new tools
Getting an amazon gift card meant I could finally justify the price of this bad boy. Can’t wait to give it a shot.

Those are cute. Here’s two man sized shackles
I knew what size it was before I picked it up.
Damn, he’s telling not holding back!
HVAC Service Van. Obsession or Passion, you decide.
It ain’t much, but it’s my Mjölnir.
Snap-on score! $300 craigslist buy. All drawers slide and has all 3 original keys.
I know they’re not red, but I’m proud of them all the same
What the Scottish wear when they are working
The airport was selling confiscated tools for charity. I got this small bundle for 14$!
Hooking my boss up for Christmas
I found these Knipex pliers that are so old, they were made in West Germany. Still as good as new!
Still cheaper than the Snap-On set.
NTD - I needed a bigger adjustable wrench. (Tattoo for scale)
This Hammerhead Shark made from hammer heads.
