Tool Collecting

Collecting is additive! :D

I acquired the "Tool Disease" as a kid when we had very few tools on the home farm. I've been adding to my collection ever since, and just retired a couple years ago from our machine shop and welding business at home, where we did farm repair work.

Years ago, I did a lot of woodworking so I have a pretty fair collection of wood tools, too. I have too many tools, but I'm loathe to get rid of any. After almost 60 years of collecting, I refuse to be without the EXACT thing I need for any given job!

Yeah, it's an addiction... :eek:

Mine is guitars. 20 years ago I happened into a 1946 Epiphone Archtop. From that point I started looking for older Epi's. I now have 12, plus a couple Alvarez. Who needs that many guitars? :rolleyes:
Like machinist, I just can't bring myself to sell any of them.
