I call it justification to purchase a second trailer...

The tools are not the means, they are the end. Just ask SuEllyn.

Do you buy tools on sale just in case you may need it someday? I hope I am not the only one.

I also have the problem of buying a tool because I can't find the one I bought for the previous project. This is why I now have over a dozen box cutters and don't know where they are.

When I go to get batteries for my powere tools, I always end up buying several new tools because they come with batteries and a charger. I convince myself that it's like getting the tools for free.

I think it means you got a great deal on the Trailer in the first place. No single tool has exceened my original cost, but the total cost of tools........
I don't want to know.

And Yes, I do know the difference between a strap wrench, a pipe wrench, a torque wrench, and an adjustable wrench (which most people mistakenly call a "crescent wrench". "Crescent" is a brand name).

My Reasoning

For the house - "look how much I saving over having it done"
For the trailers - "its for the kids"

There is a close watch on duplicates. Yes the second trailer is an issue best avoided with a lot of political talk.

A suitable and legal name for an adjustable wrench is a "cresent" wrench, without the second C. If you call it that, you are not violating a copyrighted brand name.

This is based on my theory that the original Moncky Wrench came to be known as the "monkey" wrench to avoid similar branding issues.
