Biggest. Dumbest. Thickest. Most inflexible. Least sharp. Totally invaluable. Worthless in order words.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Back in my motor bike days, most definitely an impact driver. 

Cheap as chips and to use it you give it a good whack with a lump hammer 🔨🔨. Very satisfying 😉

A cheap stainless steel digital caliper;  EZ metric/imperial conversions, scribes soft materials, more accurate than I can generally shape things, does differential measures with the zero function. Cheaper than your lunch, so you're not afraid to use it.  Get the one that does fractional sizes for a few coins more. Get a few more for your friends' birthdays!

Only on very tiny nuts. You will experience difficulties the larger the bolt gets. And you may experience difficulties trying to undo a metric nut if you have the readout on imperial and vice versa.

Advice is free. :P 

And remember: There are no stoopid questions, but there are stoopid answers.

And mine just might qualify. :D

If it works. Otherwise it is just a paperweight.

Or a prop for a coffee as per my previous post above.

Like minds Andy, was also going to say that.

I'm on my third cement mixer having worn out the first 2. My wacker plate is also excellent for levelling lawns.

Tool I most wondered "how the hell did I live before I bought this" is my sonicrafter, use it for everything, even stirs the tea nicely.

Ruler = rule. A ruler is one of those guys that controls his country with an iron fist.

They sure know all about those!

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Dunno, not been able to get in my garage since I moved in. 

Also, what is this "Tool" that you speak of?

Step 1) Go to bathroom.

Step 2) Turn on light.

Step 3) Look in mirror.

Step 4) Observe reflection.

Step 5) Understand that 'reflection = tool'.
