Trying to put together a small toolbox for making small to medium-
I'd like to be efficient in terms of space / functionality, so ask:
``What multi-purpose wood-working tools are actually worth getting and
putting in a tool Kit intended for making small—medium-sized boxes?''
w/ a corollary of:
``What tools are only useful in single-purpose form?
Things which are in:
- gunsmithing hammer
- 3-in-1 Brass Marking Gauge
- reproduction #1 Odd-Job (or a combination square—- I’d be
interested in discussions as to why I’d prefer one over the other)
- Veritas® Chisel Plane and a 1” chisel
- Kreg KMA2900 Multi-Mark Multi-Purpose Marking and Measuring Tool
instead of a sliding bevel?
- yankee screwdriver for drilling holes / driving, or a set of
- combination plane
- jack plane w/
2 blades (cambered for scrub / rough work and flat
for fine work)
and I always have a Leatherman P.S.T. w/ me.
- a block plane (Lee Valley Skew) was suggested last time I discussed
- router plane
- files (flat and half round),
- a rasp as well (four-in-hand)
- Marking knife.
- Dividers / scribe.
- oil & stones for sharpening
- Reciprocating Saw Blade & Screwdriver Handle but the screwdriving
is redundant. Suggestions for a small, portable saw or set of saws?
Ridiculous and won't be included (I'd appreciate warnings of more such
- combination rasp / wood chisel
I want small, elegant & clever. Thanks!
