Looking for idea or plans for diffrent hand tools I can make.
"... As mentioned above, it's tough to justify the time for the tap guide (for example) when you can buy one for under $20 from Enco, think I've seen them for $5. However, the more we work in our shops the more proficient we get. It's not all about efficiently spending money vs. time, sometimes it's just FUN to make something you can show off or better yet use. I still use a small ball peen hammer I made in shop class as a 7th grader. I have a set of HF ball peen's for under $20, but still go to my shop made one for center punching.
