in comes one, out comes 2 – I think it’s a win win situation… alas at the cost of an unnecessary experience.

LOL This ought ta teach a important lesson to both of you, one don’‘t lend him your tools and two just cause the idea seems to be sound doesn’t mean his interpretation of it is :)

Giggle. I’m with Sawblade1: I’m gonna save this post and trot it out again when someone asks the recurring “Do you loan your tools, and if not, why not?”

Nah, my husband is the best. Wouldn’t trade him in for the world. He got up two hours early this morning (he works a night shift) to have time to take me up to the hardware shop and get a new saw so I can finish my sawhorses today.
And happily, one inexpensive Stanley 20” is much like every other inexpensive Stanley 20”, so it was an easy replacement to pick out.

LOL….I found your story not only humorous but very appropriate…...in order to alleviate the strain to my and my better half’s relationship I purchased a full kit of tools for her to use when she finds the need.
This occurred after discovering her use of one of my freshly honed scrapers as a “wider flatter screwdriver” for a rusted and bent screw on the chicken coop door…..(that’s just one of many fine examples…lol)....I found it better for my sanity to purchase a hardy set of tools that she can use however the manner she requires.

Glad you got your saw! My better half has her own tools too so she can fiind them when she wants one. I work from a clutter as all the grand masters did; ie, Harry Pope and Einstien, to name a couple:-)) But I knew where everything was until I started to clean up the “warehouse” to make room for regular wood working. Now I have to look at the labels on the tool box drawers to find anythng:-((
