I have new TOYS!
Finally I broke down and went searching for tools of my own instead of borrowing and sweet talking others for either the tools or the services. My usual accomplice (steppop- who is nicknamed hammer pop) is struggling with cancer, the surgeries and the aftermath, so isnt available. Couldnt buy new so asked around AND my mother said" go in your grandpops shed and see what he has" I found a b&d drill and jigsaw with all the attachments, bits, heads etc! And my grandpop's really neat wooden level!
No cost and priceless because of the sentimental value. My grandfather died years ago, but because he greased everything within an inch of its life, everything is working smoothly! I am so excited, projects watch out!!
