      Its always comforting to see evidence of a fellow addict! I look forward to the day when you announce you have a room rewired for lots of big power tools for little toy cars. I can see it now... first a machine lathe, which makes you have to have a mill, then a better metal cutting band saw, followed by a table full of sheet metal working tools and a 3-way roller machine...

        yes. "money spent on tools is never wasted."
        i try to have four varieties: regular everyday use, crappy for grinding down to fit in tight places, a high quality set with sharp clean edges and a new set just in case.

            I just picked up one of these and I can't wait to use it. I'm waiting for Pete's light kits to arrive - then I'll be busy installing about 11 kits and really make use of my new tool! I also picked up this a couple weeks ago, it works great!
            Having the right tool for the job makes it priceless!

              Was told about the glue tool here recently- let us know how it works.
              We have 2 glue guns in the house thanks to my wife, Very useful for scenery work on the track. She also provided the router and jig saw used to build the track.
