Almost on topic story:
I purchased a basic Craftsman tool set over 40 years ago and have added to it over the years. Never had one break but the original 1/4 inch drive ratchet always had a floppy selector. Drove me nuts.
So, I'm making a trip to Sears and finally remember to take it with me. They give me a new one exactly like the old one.
I use it and a 10mm socket to change a taillight bulb in my trike. Later, I want to use it and can't find it anywhere.
So, I'm walking the dog about 4 blocks from my house and see something shiny in the street. Sure enough, Craftsman 1/4 inch drive ratchet, with a 10mm socket attached. ****, is this mine? How did it get here? Oh well, this one's mine now.
Later, I'm rummaging through the trunk of the trike and find my 1/4 inch drive with 10mm socket attached lying on the floor in the corner by the taillight.
I now have two and one is in the trike tool kit. Probably a good thing since I'm starting to lose stuff more often.
