I concur with Clay, you can’t have too much $$ or woodworking tools, except you might run out of $$. ;

Too many woodworking tools? That’s like saying you have too much $$, or a girl is too pretty…

Charles… upgrade to the best you can afford at the time and then upgrade as you can…Get rid of the junk tools that are really as waste of time and money… false economy… buy the best and only keep the best… as you say get rid of the stuff you do not use or can not use…

I definitely agree with degoose: buy the best. I recently bought some non-Jorgensen handscrews and I quickly learned about the false economy. The J’s acme threads are critical to their smooth action. I now own about 15 imported handscrews that I may soon get rid of.

CHARLES, DON’T LET MY WIFE READ THIS, SHE MIGHT GET IDEAS! Down sizing tools, I don’t even think I can say it. Man, you have will power.

What’s the tool with the handles that stick out to the sides, just below and to the right of the red basket?
