Default Last tool you got?

I've been on a tool kick lately since I haven't been working.

I sold my Lincoln PowerMig 255c welder a couple years ago (like a dumbass) so I just picked up a Miller 210 with spool gun from the original owner. It has never ran anything in the spool gun and about 1/4 spool through the main gun. It came with all original books and the sealed VHS video.

I bought a US General toolbox from Harbor Freight. I like it. I had tools all over the shop so I bought this one and filled it up immediately. I went back and bought the locker for it since this pic.

I have picked up a few hammers lately at flea markets and yard sales. I have around 50. I met a guy yesterday with about 600-700 hammers! I have a few more not shown here.

I got a Columbian 506 vise from my last job. I was supposed to buy it for scrap price but I bought a trailer load of 3/16" and 1/4" A36 plate and the guy forgot to add the vise to the scale before writing up the ticket. He told me to just take it. FREE I am working on cleaning it up now.

I bought a 132 lb anvil. Holy crap are they getting expensive.

I answered an ad on craigslist and got 6 pipe wrenches and a few clamps for $20.

A guy I used to work with at Cat just retired right after I left there and he was cleaning out his garage. I got a 5500w generator, 5-6 hammers, a prybar and a manual drill for $160.

I'll post some pics shortly. I start a new job Monday...good thing, I need more tool money

What's the last tool you got?

No pics, but oh well, if you really, really need to see metal removed, turn off your computer and work on your car... ~ Ray-Dean
