I've got a big tool !
Mar 30th, 2021 at 9:31pm
 
Binary oppositions......

Day and night.

Slingers and everybody else.

Coffee or Tea.

Tool user or someone who needs help† Grin

My big tool is a 14lb sledgehammer but a size competition is not for this thread.

I'm a bloke, I am genetically required to look at, fondle, caress and admire hand tools.

What is your most useful tool ? No, not the one in your trousers, and, I do not want to revisit the argument on swiss army or leatherman....... hammer (rock) and blade will always be needed before pliers !!! Grin

Today I bought a multi wrench. It has 8 sockets on one handle. The 8mm sleeved and spring loaded inside the 12mm and so on up to 21mm.

Only time will tell wether it is a worthy addition to the tool box or another lump of metal to be used as a sinker.

I will report back on wether it is a treasure or a turkey.

So, which of your tools has paid for itself and which are dead weight ?

Does a toolbox multi tool exist or are they all simple cash removal devices ?

Cheers

This one is Victorinox. Wenger is just as good.

A thoughtful gift and a perfect example of a tool not worth its
space !

I bought this axe off of ebay ages ago for something like £20. One of my best buys ever. Keeps it's edge well, is comfortable and is basically indestructible. I love it.

So wait....


Youre just going to name this thread that and pretend like nothing happened. You naughty, naughty man you!

...


Straight adze/bearded hatchet

Bought this about a month ago and it just arrived from Sweden. The wait was brutal but it chops like a real MF'er. Hence the trademark.

How can you doubt my naughtiness ?

Kick lovely piece, can we have a close up of the mark please ?

Morphy, definite tingles. Understand the purchase.

Cheers.

It says "William Rodgers, I cut my way" No idea who William Rodgers is but he makes a good axe.

@ Morphy. The patented Johnson is a marvellous device. Mine is not as big as his but its a lot wider and made of brass† Roll Eyes
@ Kick. Only one of the most famous Sheffield knife makers. What you have there technically doesn't exist so I suspect its a contract job.
I have several knives with Sheffield names but PRC stamps.
It looks good and it works, what more can you ask ?

Huh I didn't know that. Cool! Explains why it's such a nice axe I guess.

† † As some of you might recall, in 2015 my town got hit by a tornado. It made a mess of my trees. The damage is still visible today. The tornado dumped countless tons of twisted tree wreckage on my fence and in my yard. It took months to clean up. The most useful tool† I had was my branch clippers. I did more work with them than with the chain saw, bow saw, or ax. It cuts three inch thick branches or roots like butter. I was very thankful to have this.

Edit:  I stuck my boot in there for some perspective but it didn't work because my feet are big... 13 EEE.  The clippers are bigger than they appear in the picture.
