There’s an old saying that “it’s the poor craftsman who blames his tools,” but remember that most old saying are bullshit. The right tools are not only critical to doing a job well, they increase your enjoyment and reduce your frustration in getting jobs done. Cheap tools or the wrong tools are just nightmare makers. A crappy screwdriver can ruin your whole day in an instant. Sometimes we have to make do because a specific tool is unavailable or simply because tools are expensive. It takes time to learn the tools you like and to acquire a good tool library, but whenever you have a choice, get the best quality tools you can. If you half-ass your choice of tools, you are half-assing every job you will ever do with them. Work piece by piece to build that library. Appreciate the honest aesthetics of well-made tools and do not abuse them. This investment will pay rewards to your machine and your soul.
