New toys for the workshop...

As promised, I thought I would share some of my new toys that I added to my arsenal.  

Mr. D. asked me what I wanted for Valentine's Day and my birthday... without hesitation my answer was tools.  So off to Harbor Freight we go to pick out what I wanted.  He was so patient and he went through every isle with me he was too afraid to let me loose and helped pick out some cool things that I know I will use in my workshop. 

First up let me introduce you to Mr. Dust Collector  he is a must in the workshop...
thank you Carol for putting me onto this... the large one was far too big, but this one was perfect for what I needed and it just rolls under my work table when I am finished with it...

I can now use this in my inside workshop... 

 and with this little adapter I can put it in any tool, no more endless hours of cleaning up sawdust...

next up... a needed tool belt and a new tape measure to keep right in that little pouch... no more searching for one...

screw driver bits for the drill... look at all those pretty colours... less chance of losing them now...
hex drivers for the drill too...

some needed drill bits... I like these you just pop them in your drill, no adjusting...

these are the coolest bits... they drill and cut... I am a little anxious to try these out...

the cutest little can to store all my bits...


 A finger saver featherboard for the table saw for cutting angles... 

a post level... great for those table legs...

now I have a square everywhere I work... I liked the one with the built in level it came with the post level...

you can never have enough clamps... they are like growing another hand...

another organizer box... we know that these are a must...

back savers roller ball bearings... these will be great for so many things...

workshop gloves that I know will end up in the garden when summer hits...

sandpaper for my little mouse...

I just had to have these cool little scissors... they just scream prim to me...

more third hands clamps... great for the Kreg Jig...

wire wheels... my garden tools might get a good cleaning this year...

I found this little gem at Big Lots... check out that price...

I am always looking for these... great behind pictures to save the walls...

I always use ear protection with my saws and the small ones just don't cut it... a face shield for those nasty jobs...

Now if I could just find the mojo to go use these little puppies I would be a happy girl...
I am so lazy today.

It's such a gray dismal day with high winds and snow flurries... I am so sick of this winter I could just scream... I need sunshine, desperately.   

Hope you are all having a great weekend...

Hugs, Deb

You got lots of nice tools. I think Grampy has most of them in his workshop. Some of them he has two or three of that he's collected over the years.

Nice toys, oops I mean tools! My hubby would love it if we lived close to a Harbor Freight, I'm sure my quilting budget would be slashed, LOL. We had a bright sunny day here today, but the wind sure did bring in the cold, hope you get some sun tomorrow!
