is WD-40 considered a tool? I mean... if an iPhone is a tool, then so is WD-40!

I'd say WD-40 or Liquid wrench! Time savers, bolt savers.

If you own a Jeep then it's gotta be PB Blaster.

CPO tools is having a sale on all there reconditioned tools, just trying to give a heads up.
I do not now or have I ever worked for them.
I just bought a Porta Cable 5" random orbital sander for under $25.00.

My Makita angle grinder is essential for so many jobs. Had to cut a run of tile that had been badly laid -- hand held it to follow a pencil line. Perfect cut, no damaged tiles. Turned around and cut stucco the next day. Turned around and used it to clean up old nails on a framing job. This tool saves the day when no other tool could help.

Our best tools are your hands if we have the brains to use them properly and safely
