Mine's an allen key.
I also think white spirit is great, but that's not a tool.
Always end up dropping them on the floor a dozen times when tightening a bolt with one.
I'd go Stanley knife
That's your 2014 sorted.
My favourite is a torque wrench.
...that or a flat head screwdriver which is funnily enough your mums nickname for me as well ;(
can you guess what a "Heel-do" is?
HELP I NEED TUNGSTEN TO LIVE
your mam, same reason.
and tools hate me. Especially allen keys and screwdrivers. Seems to either round off the bolt or the allen key / screw, I cross-thread stuff and I end up hurting my hand in the process. Even putting up pictures I end up with the nail being all bent as it doesn't want to go into the wall. Drilling is horrible, massive gouges rather than a nice neat hole, then the rawlplug falls out or the mirror or whatever doesn't stay up right or the holes are in the wrong place despite measuring and checking.
Sanders are alright though, quite fun.
a chainsaw to chop down a tree in my garden. Absolutely great. I did a Leatherface style dance with it afterwards
