The other day, we asked you to tell us about the tools you love using – the ones that seamless blend into your work.
Jeff enjoyed that post – and all of the commenters’ posts – and had a great suggestion. He asked if we could talk about some of the tools that sit around and collect dust from disuse.
Have you thought about a thread at the other end of the spectrum? Maybe, “what tool have you bought that mostly collects dust?” or “what tool did you buy expecting to use frequently but in fact rarely use” or “what tool do you keep in your toolbox even though you have never used it or have not used it in years?”
So, how about it?
Which of your tools just sit around and collect dust because, for one reason or another, you just don’t use them?
I’ll need to give this question some thought, but I do know of 1 tool I own that doesn’t see much use. If given the chance, I would go back and not buy this tool.
I don’t have much love for my Vise-Grip locking wrench pliers, like this one on Amazon, but with cushion grips. I bought this tool over 9 years ago, and I don’t think I’ve used them even once a year since then.
