this may not belong here but it is about tools.. do you talk to your tools? do they talk to you? for instance today i was doing some chiseling and needed a mallet, well i have two, one for big jobs and one for smaller jobs. but they were both given to me from members here.. so they talk to me in spirit and i think of the many times i have actually seen the makers in person.. just as i have some old hand planes that have initials on them from old relatives or some that were acquired from different parts of the country and had stories behind them as well. maybe this is just old age and having no one to talk to in the shop, but i think not.. sometimes i can see and feel them watching over my shoulder as i start a process.. those special tools have no price tag, but others do that came from the tool store.
