    It's the being taken for granted that irks me. I very rarely lend stuff out now, and only to good friends. I've had too much stuff come back broke. Some cheeky bastards will say , yes it's busted mate must have been on its way out.
    The lad who had the ladder problem let me use a tower scaffolding he had to paint my house recently. Saved me loads of time and struggling. I oiled up all the fasteners and treated him and his missus to a meal before I returned it.

    yeah, I think that's fair enough on your trade tools - they've got a direct economic value

    I have a lot of tools as I like to service things myself, where I can

    My old dad had this thing about sweeping brushes. He'd go mad at me if I left one standing bristles down.

    The young carpenter friend of mine is always getting pestered in his workshop by the yachties, who are renowned for being tight.
    He had one turn up with an old piece of scrap timber the other day. " Be ok if I just shove this through your planer won't it"?
    "No it won't"
    " Why not ya miserable bastard"?
    "Because your old bit of scrap timber is full of old nails and screws, so piss off".

    I have a simple policy you break, scratch or otherwise ruin it, you buy it.

    If it's cars or bikes I get them to come round, I don't want to be fucking around on slabs or the road of the floor so bring it and we'll do it properly, thay way tools stay at home and I have a gofer

    You bend it, you've bought it.

    My son-in-law borrowed my jet wash to clean his drive and returned it on his final warning absolutely shit up to the eyeballs. The thick **** didn't think to give it a quick spray down whilst it was set up.
    My rule is that if I need a tool twice I'll buy one.

    Got a 5lb Sandvik felling axe with a hickory handle from the cbs a few weeks ago. I didn't notice the one woodworm hole in the handle, or that it had been fitted the wrong way round, until I looked closer. I got a hickory handle at a craft show and fitted the head. The thing's solid now, and the old handle will make 2 hatchet handles.

    Got another rusty fucked up axe for 20p from the cbs. I cleaned it up, sharpened it to a razor edge and put it on the end of the old Sandvik hickory handle. It's a treat to use and not that far off Gransfors mini hatchet that costs £130.

    Do you think that it's possible to be a little bit too fond of axes?

    I was wondering whether to post what I did with the rest of the handle? But since you ask!

    I've got a heavy and a light splitting axe and a heavy and a light carving hatchet plus a couple of spares. They're the go to tool for green woodworking and very satisfying to use. I really don't like electric tools much now. I do voluntary conservation work in a wood near here and get the wood free and make stuff like this. I split the green logs with the splitting axes into billets, carve them with the hatchets and finish them with sloyd and hook knives.

    On a site I was working on several years ago on handover day, the painters were miles behind and worked all night to get completed on time. Arrived on site to find a load of wall recessed PIRs had been painted over, mentioned it to the painter who simply replied “thats the way the cookie crumbles sometimes” with a wry smile on his face and away he walked. Not even 10 minutes had passed before he comes upto and asks for us to remove some track lights so he could get behind them to paint, strangely enough he got a similar reply and made a lot of people on site laugh at the nerve of him asking.
