Why is it that people that do NOT want to spend money think they can BORROW my tools. Because I do woodwork they want to borrow my hand sander when they are painting there HOUSE ? They want to just use my drill when they need holes in plate steel (Theirs quit). They want my jointer, they found a lot of use wood that they want to re-claim . I have watched 2 differnet people use the same table saw, with the same blade, cutting the same board. 1st person moved it slowly through the wood cutting it nicely. Second was in hurry ,burned his way through and blade needed sharpening when he was finished. Then he wondered why I don’t BORROW, LEND, GIVe my tools to other people. My wife even has HER own hammer cause MINE is MINE ! My cabinet teacher told us. You are going to make a living with your hammer and your tape measure. NEVER let others use them ! I used to buy old wood handled hammers so if someone showed up to HELP, they had theire own. Most times they broke the handle OFF by end of day. .........BUT those large spikes were pulled out ! I have been building for 35 years now, I still shake my head every time soneone asks to borrow !
Is it just me or am I being a fuddy dud.
