What interesting or unusual tool did you get,
or what “high return on investment” device are you going to use a gift card for?

Well, I got a Griot's garage detail-kit carrier - similar to a Doctor's bag from the old days - and a sampler kit of various Glenlivet Scotches.

So I guess I'll get drunk & detail a car laugh2
What could go wrong ?

I got my son his first real tool set, a nice Craftsman 239 pc with tool box one. I have plenty of spare stuff to add to the collection for him to fill out what's not there.

On the cool tool front, I got this in with my Moparts Secret Santa gift. It is the simplest little tool but I see it can be a big help. It is a T-handle it has a slot on the other side and you slide it over the crimped end of a tube of sealant or any squeeze tube and you roll it up to get all the sealant out. Mine came with a tube of Toyota Seal Packing 103. I looked around online and found you can buy them online separately. Thank you very much Moparts Secret Santa.

I got six of these lights for the garage. They won't light a commercial shop, but they beat the heck out of hundred-watt bulbs. Their longevity will be the question mark.
