Tools, Tools, and more Tools

Is there a term for when the cost of new tools surpasses the original cost of the trailer?

It's called cranial-something-or-other inversion....

From a guys perspective, I agree with Aerowood.

Isn't that when you become a restoration business?

That is when you finally realize that one trailer is not enough..................

I haven't got the "ultimatum" on trailers yet (have only three--the fourth got sold), but when I had five boats I was "politely" informed that I had exceeded the limit.

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.
