I sent the link to your dad. I figured he'd get a kick out of that list being the wood-work-fetisher that he is.

This forum doesn't seem to have many members who use such tools for hobby/improvement/vocation purposes but I thought someone might be familiar enough with them to enjoy the very real humor.

No doubt about it - I'm a city boy through and through.

Tools are what mechanics use!

I was found at my father's side from the age of three in his wood-working shop. I was given a box of leftover plumbing fixtures and off-cut copper pipes to play with until I could use the tools. I use many of the tools mentioned at least once a week on the farm, sometimes multiple times a day depending on the project. I don't share much about it because it is constant in my life and always has been I guess

No argument with his analysis. He does have a rather interesting career path.
