Tools are very addictive, even ones that you hardly use or need regularly. Having the best or the right tool for the job can’t be emphasised enough. When you find and use the exact tool needed for tackling a particular job, wow what a buzz. Non ‘toolies’ just don’t understand us.

I know the condition well, my work partner used to buy tools and put them in the wardrobe because they were "too good to use" :lol:

I'm fortunate in that I like good tools, but I'm happy with one toolbox and a few more things in the shed, like socket set etc.

I don't want an addiction. Or a shed load of tools. Can someone put a link to a non-ratcheting handle please?

Have a look here

My tools have been collected from about 1970 when I did all my own work on cars and bikes.
I soon learnt cheap tools were a false economy with broken spanners, sockets and wrenches.
Have fun with tools. :thumb:

Not a lot there!
I've got a full set of sockets and spanners up to 1.5 inch (ring and open ended spanners), including Whitworth's (BSW)up to 2"; metric, imperial and BA.
At least 20 different screwdrivers; axle splitters; gear pullers; clutch tools; spring compressor; valve lapper; etc. etc. etc.
Don't get me started on hammers and mallets; saws; files; etc.
