DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it.
WIRE WHEEL: This common shop tool is useful for cleaning paint off bolts and then throwing them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, "Oh, crap-!"
SKILL SAW: A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short.
PLIERS: Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters.
VISE-GRIPS: Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand.
FOREDOM: An electric motor meant to hang from the ceiling from a hook that is never hanging there when you need it. There is a flexible shaft from the motor to the hand tool that loops down far enough to provide a convenient tripping hazard every time you turn around. The motor is so well made you can’t hear it running. This allows for nice little holes to be cut in your sand bags every time you lay down the hand set.
ANGLE GRINDER: Often used with either a cutting blade that sometimes gets stuck in the stone and then spins the stone or your wrist whichever weighs less, or a grinding blade which within seconds can erase fine detail work that has taken you days to complete.
