Of course a hammer & set of screw drivers. Now what was the 1st tool I bought that I actually built something with??? A Kreg Jig Jr. graduated 3 weeks later to Kreg Jig 4 will never look back. I have added to my "toolbox" extensively since getting hooked and I have a plethora of things planned to build in 2015.
Well back when I was still in high school I bought a set of automotive repair tools and metal fabrication equipment and spent a few years doing automotive repair a building race engines for a living.
Then I bought a hand gun and some handcuffs and went into law enforcement. After retiring from there I bought every woodworking tool that I could get my hands on. Built a cabinet building business and continue to buy woodworking tools. The first tool that I bought from Kreg Tools was a K-2 kreg jig. Still have it as I can't wear the thing out even thought I have tried. Bought all of the new Kreg jigs and tools and now an enjoying a busy life working wood.
