Lee Valley Medium shoulder plan. I thought the $180 was high, and i really didn’t think i got a good value when i first bought it….BOY WAS I WRONG! i use it for so many things i never thought of when i first got it. I probably grab it nearly as much as my Veritas low angle block plane (and i would sleep with that one under my pillow if i could)

Birdcage makers awl (aka square bladed awl) I had a regular awl that i used now and then but never thought it was very special. on a whim i bought a square blade awl after reading something about them. I use it all the time.

Trim router. 1hp Bosch Colt. I got it just to trim laminate (its original intended purpose) and found it had more than enough muscle to do most small jobs. I have much better control and versatility with it than a full sized router. My big 2hp router says permanently mounted now. I almost never need it in a handheld capacity.
