A good graduated combination square would be useful too, no? If the engineers squares above were graduated I'd probably use them so much for general tasks that I'd end up messing them up/dropping them...
At this point, I don't even have a good steel rule. Some of you have seen me around here long enough to know I am a beginner. What should I be collecting along these lines?
P.S. Cleaned the (8') gutters today with a Sear ShopVac accessory ($19.99). Definitely a great tool for that chore! Since I recently had new roof installed, besides leaves they were full of grit and nails, etc. It blows leaves, cleans gutters, vacuums the car well. I never before got such satisfaction from a "vacuum cleaner"! : )
