    I made a pretty good living off the PC. This one's decent, but #1 son is toasting it with a fine array of 3d games.
    I probably use my loppers around here the most on keeping the drive clear as well as an electric lawn mower for tennis court maintenance.
    Then there's the flexons and the DPS Lotus 120s.

    I have a maybe 25-year-old leatherman that I use all the time, it's a kinda medium one, doesn't have the coffee grinder or the pneumatic drill but does have quite a variety of useful shit.

    Right. That should be a #3 Pozidrive, which is the exact match to what almost all bindings use.

    For the home base, my 2000W and 3000W Honda generators. Nice to keep the house warm and the freezers cold when the power goes out.
    Away from home, my old silva ranger sighting compass.

    I love my cobras. They beat out the crescent for versatility by miles.

    Seriously?...

    Three pages and no one calls this blatant BS out?! Favorite tool, Fiskars long pole, lol. I've never seen Iceman without this within 50' of his reach:

    IMO, once you try a Knipex, your Channel Locks will sit in the toolbox. They are a joy to use.

    Same here, nice to see all the Cobra love. Once you try them you'll never go back to channels.
