That's funny. I did the same thing regarding 4' ladders. And I especially don't miss the aluminum one that kept gouging me in the leg from the edge of the brace. Still sits in the yard....where it belongs.The ratcheting wrenches are awesome. Not gimmicky at all. Alot of electricians use them. I bought GearWrench. Very good quality.
As far as tools that you wonder how you got along without them, years ago I bought a 4' ladder. I have no idea why it took me so long to buy one, guess I finally got tired of using a bucket, or 6', but that was revolutionary.
Then there was the Breaker Tracer Kit. There are some places where you can't just stick the no-contact into the receptical, and go back to the panel and start guessing. :thumbsup:
Top pic is a fast cap tip magnet. They are stupidly expensive, like 10 bucks, but worth every penny when you need to screw with one hand or a hard to reach place. It holds the screw right on the bit and it if doesn't go it will fall back onto the magnet, not on the ground.Please enlighten me.
Hey not for nothing but Craftsman/Sears ripped this tool off of the original manufacturer LoggerHead. http://loggerheadtools.com/What got me thinking about this thread was turning a nut in a tight space. I'm considering one of those Craftsman ratcheting wrenches that grab everything. They seem gimmicky, but might be worth it after all.
