Love that place. Have more of their stuff then I probably should.

I'm not going to look in the catalog.

I was at Lee Valley this past Friday. For some reason, I always leave that store having spent more than I had planned on when I arrived.

Yah, Lee Valley has its' fans alright. I guess that I'm too much of a hacker to appreciate their ambiance.

I volunteer at a workshop. Most volunteers proudly wear their Lee Valley shop aprons and discuss the esoteric qualities of Lee Valley tools. I bought a Princess Auto apron.

Nice tools

New tools, old tools, high polish, good feel, sharp, durable, and with a nice box. I'm very fond of tools. However, my greatest fear is that when I die my wife will sell my tools based on what I told her I paid for them. How many socket sets does one man need she asked? About as many as he needs shotguns, fishin poles and Dutch ovens said I. And then the fight started.

I spent the first fifty years of my life acquiring stuff; the second fifty will be spent getting rid of it all.

We are going to be downsizing our home, but my shop is in need of being upsized.

Using tools for a living gives one great appreciation of how much better a quality tool performs and lasts compared to a cheaper one. Of course, it all depends on the skill level of the user too.

I have a few Lee Valley tools. Built great, and with care will last forever. What I like most about what they sell is the ergonomics and performance of the tools. It makes doing the work at had so much easier. Good quality, and I like that.

I do shop at Princess Auto too, and do buy a few tools there, mostly ones that will see little use, so do not need to be the best quality.
