I have 3 of them myself. 1 though, the newest of the dripping dripless, took a hard fall from a 40' ladder after I noticed my whole shoe was covered in caulking. It also got a beating from my hammer to be sure I never tried to use it again. The whole crew sat & watched me in silence with a weird look on their faces.

Three paint brushes with hardened paint on them.
Two 5 gallon buckets with hardened thinset in them.
Dozens of half empty caulk and spray foam insulation tubes.
All of the above only used once..selling for $2.75
Seriously though, you can have the whole lot for $4.50

I love beating the hell out of things with the claw end of my hammer.

The Stanley 20 Oz. Fatmax Antivibe Hammer does very well.
If I don't beat my tools up, I'll put off buying better tools. Always say "I can get away with using it JUST one more time". Never fails though I get mad all over again. Now if a tool makes me mad, I destroy it right then & there, so I can never use it again & HAVE to go out that night & get a better one.

Re: I Buy Tools


Only a few hundred bucks? I take it that this is for re-sale? I have a bunch of old toolboxes that go back to the turn of last century including the tool pouchs that came with my grandfathers Model T&A Fords. Have shipwrights tools that date back to the 1400-1600's.

I once beat the hell out of a irwin clamp... DIDNT even break. I still have it and it is doing well. I decided that if it survived the beating it could stay around a little longer.

Wasn't one of the Irwins that start to slip instead of tighten is it ?

I have one I haven't chucked yet that does that. Aside from that-its a good clamp.

5.00 + shipping and handling.
