I’m not exactly the handiest of people.
So my tool collection is pretty sparse.
Actually, most of it I’ve had for all of my adult life. Dad gave me most all of it. I think I was quite a disappointment to my dad in the mechanical vein. He was always out in the garage or in the basement working on some sort of project. Where I was pretty studious and stuck to my books inside the air conditioning of my bedroom. So when I was in college and just after, dad was always giving me tools. Which was sort of like giving a five year old a chemistry set. Anyway, I really don’t know all that much about fixing stuff or even diagnosing problems. When it comes to stuff like heating and cooling, I live that to the HVAC professionals. But when it came to a draft I couldn’t find that was costing me money in the winter, I was on my own. And dad would be so proud because I went online to the HVAC company website and learned that I needed the right tool for the job. So I went to the hardware and purchased a thermal gun. It can read the temperature of the air or whatever you point it at. And with that right tool, I found the one window that wasn’t properly insulated when we had the double panes installed. Once I had the window people come out and do it right, the house was so cozy that I could hardly believe it. My wife could hardly believe it either as that might have been the first thing I fixed around the house ever.
