I love tools. Woodworking, mechanic's, testers and just about all kinds of tools.
I was an auto mechanic for over 50 years and I love working with wood making crafts & outdoor furniture.
Lots of times while perusing tag sales, pawn shops and flea markets, I find some tools i do not know what they are used for.
This sounds like a great site to find the info on such tools.

Welcome to the forum from Illinois.
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

Sounds like you have many of the same symptoms  as most of us. The good news is, the only known salve for the disease is more tools. Welcome from Wisconsin.
