    I have "distilled" my everyday tools into a tote bag, even saving weight and room by taking all my heavy tools out and making a "bashing bag" (lump hammer, pry bar, chisels, scutch, claw hammer etc).

    It's now almost too heavy to lift and I don't know why. I've taken the lightweight combi drill out before but it needs to be in there because it's so useful. I've even taken a kilo of detritus out the bottom and put it into my compartment boxes/bin.
    Mystified.

    Admit it you're a tool tart, or in this case a Tool Tote Tart, or as my mates would say a T to the power of 3 work it out.

    i bought a stanley folding rule a few weeks back, was very useful for spacing out some awkward light fittings in a hall way.

    Why did you use that rather than a tape measure?

    Always thought they were more of a carpenter's tool. Never seen them for sale with Electrician's tools.

    Folding rulers are ace , I find it most useful marking out on ceilings for whatever I’m installing

    The Festool one was £3.36 was rude not to buy one, I find in some applications a folding ruler just has the edge.

    I've been using a folding rule for last few years after I got given some in Germany

    I like them , good for some things not so good at others but pretty cheap to replace

    Plus I used to lose tape measures to people wanting to borrow a tape
    "just for a minute "
    Tend to look at a folding rule and move on to someone else
