    I really appreciated viewing the shop layouts as well as the necessary tools. I can see it makes work easier with good organization. This led me to many more ideas on what I should be thinking about. Thanks Jon Baldock

    Very well presented. With a couple small exceptions I like every tool you presented and the points you emphasized. Thank you Sir.

    This is a great presentation. Well done. It has made me reconsider how many tools I need to carry with me and what needs to be on the bench. Thank you.

    Thanks for this. Although I have mechanic’s and other tools as well, I intend to have separate tool boxes and benches for boat, home and auto projects in our new garage/shop now under construction. Praying for a mild winter so it can be done in time for spring commissioning.
