When I really want precision, this is the one I reach for. Only $1.00 new.

You need one of these, folding rule and calipers. Lufkin also made a model that would read degrees on the hinge.

You have quite an assortment of machinist tools, all well used and taken care of. I've had Mitutoyo, Brown & Sharpe and Federal indicators and calipers and always amazed a klutz like myself could measure in "tenths"!!
Years ago I had a guy working for me that had no credit. I purchased a used B & S 0.0001” indicator on eBay for him. It complicated my shop because he was always trying to zero out parts on machines that weren’t capable of that tight of a tolerance. I also made parts for a guy that wanted everything held to tenths tolerance, but had no way of actually measuring the end tolerances.

A few sanders and routers. The black topped router on the lower right is a Power Kraft which was sold by Montgomery Wards. It was likely made by Stanley because it uses the same collars and other accessories as my Bosch routers use. The router also belonged to my Grandfather.

Okay, so this is your horde of corded power tools...now show us the collection of cordless power tools! If you're missing something I can't spot it.

Finding the tools posts a bit testosteron-oriented I want to throw in a counterpoint. ;)
So here's my collection of most important tools depending whether I'm behind the wood&steel, the lens or in front of the cooker.

Most of my collection of cordless is old and comatose, batteries that will no longer charge. I do have a Bosch screwdriver (my first tool with lithium batteries) that is 15 years old and will still charge though. My newest are mostly 12 V Milwaukee tools that really impress me with battery life and power.

I would guess that testosterone oriented tools were used to create all of your gender neutral tools.

Agree...I have a Milwaukee "D12 Fuel" brushless drill and amazed at its power and battery life...charge it in January and use it all year. Best cordless drill I've had.
