Average cost of around $100 each. Then my collection of files, there are about 200 in it, avewrage cost of around $30 each. Then the hammers, the saws, the picks, solder, extra torches, grinders, sanders, pickle pots, steamers, buffers, ultrasonics, and then you can get into other tools, shears, rolling mills, etc. A wood shop has nothing on me. Then I can start to buy gold and platinum. After that the gem stones. If I go cheap I do silver. Right now most of it is stored. No space for it to be fully set up. </td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
One of my other hobbies is collecting and restoring antique fountain pens. A lot of the same tools - fortuantly - not quite as bad - only 5 or 6 pliers, picks etc - Nib repair tools - so a lot of the metal working stuff. Ultrasonic cleaner and dremmels and polishers. ..... Maybe I don't want to remember all this stuff .....
