Good pipe wrenches are expensive. Working at a plumbing/hvac shop i needed some. So i kept my eyes open and scratched up some used ones over the coarse of a couple weeks. Cleaned them up and marked them (everyone uses ridgid pipe wrenches) and for the price of one i have 4! The teeth are sharp, they bite good and they are smooth as silk.

Got two 18s amd two 24s for less than one new 24. Cant beat that.

My Dad was a building contractor. And, his tools often took a hike into some one else's tool box. Not deliberate, but when everyone is scrambling to clean up at the end of the day, stuff gets misplaced. So, he bought a can of flourescent purple spray paint. Every tool he owned had a stripe of purple around the handle. No mistaking that!!!

I keep saying that... one of these days, I'm gonna so label my garden tools. It will make them so much easier to find when I'm searching the yard... "Now... where did that rake go????"
