Woodworking in the great white north.

Tool addiction poll

Since I started woodworking, I’ve found my tool addiction has changed from time to time. Lately I’ve found myself torn between getting more premium hand tools, making my own tools and looking for bargain ‘old users’ in flea markets/etc. Don’t get me wrong, I still like the smell of new power tools, but more and more I’m justifying the cost of a good hand tool. Years ago this would have been ludicrous…$80 for a chisel? I can get 10 for $5 at the bargain store! How little I knew….or, how much I’ve been pulled to the dark side.

So…where are you in your journey through tool addiction?

  1. Ian,
    I’m leaning towards brand addict, but I’m more a type of tool rather than brand addict. Check out my up coming post on the number of routers I have. Thanks for spreading the tool love. Nice poll.
