Tools for every handy man
Tools are wonderful things, they help us to accomplish tasks that we couldn’t normally do on our own, they are wonderful assistants... unless you are one of those handy Do-it-yourself types who give us new insight into common everyday tools

Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them some-where under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, "Uh-oh!"
A portable cutting tool used to make boards too short.
Used to round off bolt heads. Some-times used in the creation of blood-blisters.
An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into
major refinishing jobs.
One of a family of cutting tools capable of trans-forming human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion. The more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes.
Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand.

Normally used for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans; but can also be used,
as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads.
A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and for butchering your palms.
Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent to the object you are trying to hit.
Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents such as newly upholstered furniture, vinyl records, all liquids contained in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use.
