    New tools always make me smile

    Just ordered a 24x36 cutting mat to be a work surface on my welding table. Yesterday I had set of 4 1-2-3 blocks come in and I just received my Chinese caliper thingys.

    These are all items I've been eyeballing but don't really have a need for yet for some reason they make me super happy to get em.

    set asside a few of the 123 blocks as "beater" blocks, they make great spacers when clamping things up. And keep the others as good ones that won't get nicked or weld spatter on them

      Hell yes, new tools are always a good idea. I've been on a Milwaukee kick lately so I picked up their ultimate fuel sawzall to make 2 small cuts in a fence at my chicks place. Most expensive dollar per immediate use tool I've ever bought but I'm ok with that.

          Same here on the Milwaukee stuff. I bought a pancake compressor, got 16 ga, 18ga nailer and a stapler with it. Haven't tried it yet. Maybe this weekend.

            I dont know why, but new tools make me more excited than most other objects when purchased.

            Where did you get the cutting mat?

                Recently bought a Yukon bearing puller set & Precision Instruments in-lb torque wrench so I could rebuild a diff. in my garage.

                Not gonna' lie - I was like a kid at Christmas unboxing & inspecting my new, high-quality, USA-made "toys".

                  Yukon makes something in the US?

                  We had part of a Slinky. But I straightened it.

                    I was pretty happy to get one of these in the mail, after decades of using crap clickers from pawn shops.

                      Got the HF stud welder so I can start pulling the crash damage on one of my shitboxes. Kinda sad I can't use it since I promised the GF we'd go to the lake house this weekend.

                        I thought the axle tools were made here

                        If not, good job, you fuzzy foreigners!

                          Bought a laminate cutter for a floor I was doing. The thing showed up a week after the floor was down but oh well, I'll use it on the next one. Makes way less of a mess than the jigsaw

                            I hope so, because I was just looking at that clamshell puller last night. Yukon > India, wherever it's made.
