Ha @Mick0s - I posted that same pic on @Wayne's wine barrel discussion here - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Outdoor/Wine-Barrels/m-p/11656#M1597

 

Please don't wait for a bigger house. And tell us if you take commissions because I don't think I'll ever start my tabletop arcade project...

I thought it was time to revive this discussion.

 

What was the first tool you remember buying? And are you still using it?

Re: What was the first tool you ever bought?

My DIY journey started a few years back when my husband taught me how to use a drill so that I could hang pictures etc up myself ☺️ Ever since then I’ve been hooked on making things as I could do it myself now. The drill he had was just a cheapy with a cord, so for his birthday I bought myself, I mean him 😉, a Ryobi battery powered drill and it’s the best! 👌🏻

Re: What was the first tool you ever bought?

I think the first handtool(s) I bought myself would be a Craftright kit if various basic tools. This is the one in fact: https://www.bunnings.com.au/craftright-75-piece-carry-case-tool-kit_p6111032

Still using it, albeit I have had to replace a few of the screwdriver bits by now. The rest is doing fine. 

 

My first power tool was a Ryobi 18V One+ Drill Driver. It was actually bundled with a impact wrench and a Ryobi ToolBlox 2-drawer storage unit. Man, I wish I could get my hands on those ToolBlox again! Loved them. Just couldn't afford to buy more at the time and then they discontinued them. 😞

 

My first garden tool...I think it was a decent quality hand trowel. Either that or it was a long-handled 3-prong cultivator.
