    I do like new tools I got a few new wood working tools for Christmas, but I'm a joiner anyway. I did however get a set of irwin bolt grip sockets, their tapered so if you have a rounded nut or damaged nut, the harder you pull the harder they grip. You can even hammer them on further for extra grip. There not like normal sockets so they won't be used all the time but may get you out of a jam sometime.
