Good catch Mark! I may just go out and buy another tool just to get us back on topic!
You can't have too many tools!
Coil spring clamps come to mind right now.

I just bought a pair of 6-Ton jack stands. The 4 existing ones I had for my cars are not tall enough for our trucks. I got tired of putting stacks of 2x6’s under them to build them up. From NAPA on sale for $49.99. I ordered on line and picked them up that same day. On sale thru 8/27.

I haven’t used them yet but the quality looks good.

That's my last tool purchase as well. But it was to replace the harbor freight stands I have.

Although technically not a tool, I scored a real nice fireproof cabinet at a garage sale a couple weeks ago and I finally got to install it. The funny part about this story is I saw it and dismissed it by thinking it would be out of my price range. My wife pointed it out and encouraged me to ask about it. The price was a bit more that I wanted to spend especially at a garage sale, but I have never seen used fireproof cabinets for sale anyplace. New they go for close to 1,000 dollars. I picked this up for $200. Couldn’t pass it up.

I had to relocate some equipment, remove an open metal shelf and shuffle some stuff around in order to install it. I’m happy with the results and I feel so much safer. LOL
