I would delete this post if I knew how. Instead let me say that those tools are gone….....

This is like the third post this morning I’ve seen with stuff I want. And I’m broke!

Seriously though, I agree with tenontim. The list you have will make some hand tool lovers drool in the Trade and Swap forum. They may miss it here.

First I need to say: My wife has the same rule. It may work for clothes or furniture BUT for tools it is NOT a good rule. Sometimes I have tools that have SAT for few YEARS, then when I need them they are there. It is hard to go and buy something just because you need it for 1 thing only. I have been doing this for 37 years, I DO have tools that I STARTED with back then.

PS: It is good to hear that you are giving others a chance to use what you think you no longer need !

I tend to hang on to stuff too.
In the past I’ve gotten rid of tools that I “never used”. Then I needed them as soon as they were gone.

But I live in Hawaii. Every inch of space is a premium over here. Since my son doesn’t play the guitar anymore and I have no musical skill, I don’t see the need to keep them. To be honest, I thought that making an instrument would be fun. Then I took piano lessons-very briefly. It didn’t take long to figure out that as much as I love music, I can’t play. I don’t know the difference between a G and a C. If I made a guitar, I would have no way of ever knowing if it sounded good! Hahaha. I’d better stick with things that I CAN do!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts….......

KEEP THEM!!!! Since you live in Hawaii make some Ukeleles! There is some good schools there that teach building them.
Here is a couple of sites for you to check out.

I apologize if I, or we, sounded like we were being hard on you. I, for one, was only stating what I do. Each person has there own way of doing things. It is good that you want to give someone else a chance to use these tools.

No offense taken, I generally agree with you. At some point, I just have to clean up a bit. I’ve completely rearranged my shop this week and love it. I still have more things that need to go. I’ll post them today. I need some photos …...Have a great day!
