My favorite tool has been my snowplow lately. Talk about roi. I love my plow.

I can't believe no one has taken the opportunity to say what their favorite TOOL really is.

That TOOL got parked in the shed after my 3 year old was conceived.

well, in speaking of favorite tools..........i have a little tool that i bought about 6 years ago from Cloverdale paints when i was at the check out getting paint. It is a nail punch. Yes, but not any nail punch, it is spring loaded. So, it has two sizes of punches (one on both ends). You put it on the nail head and snap the spring loaded part back and release and presto..........nail is punched in!
Its great! it is small and i have not ever seen them anywhere else again. I am amazed i have not lost or misplaced it but yeah its real quick and simple to fly along with when prepping trim. It even handles big nails in beams or posts.
So, it remains today my favorite little marvel i saw once and picked up to try and wish i had more.

Anyone seen or come across this little handy tool?

Well since I bought my first sprayer (Graco 390) in October we're still honeymooning. But I'm very fond of my 360 pole sander.

This thread has been on my mind for that past couple of days.

I finally realized that for a tool junkie, it's tough to show favoritism to any one tool.

I love them all.

I bet we all can say that our favorite tool is the one we are buying tomorrow

Damn, that's a hard one considering all the choices. I guess I would have to say the computer as well.

My all time favorite non work related tool would have to be a firearm.
1. Puts meat on the table
2. Brings joy and stress relief at the range
3. Provides security

This knife set up with a auto blade and half Serrated Blade. If I had to go back to a old folder I would have problems. See I have gotten so spoiled to it.

I read you can get them at SW but up here in Canada we don't have SW's and I have not seen them anywhere since.
Has anyone seen them on the net? I would love to get a couple more. I can't believe it has lasted 7 years to date and you got it Vermont they are handy as heck.
Or, any of you Canadian painters seen them around of late?

Thanks

First of all the best tool I have is PAINT TALK!!!! Probably everybody thought that but didn't want to be cliche oh well!!!

#1 Titan sprayer
#2 almost number one is the 3m masking tool. That thing is awesome!!!
#3 beer mixed with V8
#4 The new ( a couple Years old) softer 3m masks as opposed to the older harder ones
#5 Painter Pail and or Pelican I can not believe those got ranked pretty low on the poll

Concerning Ortiz23
If your in good old Toronto. SW is making head way here there are opening stores all over.
