Primary use is obviously for making a dent so drill bits dont wander.

Could not resist, already ordered one on my fly through the deals, just gone back for the other one in stock at my local store.

Seldom use a centre punch but these look to be so handy I expect I'll not know how I managed without one PDQ

Nice! Just what I didn't need but did need to take me over £50 to get free delivery on all the 'Hot' screwfix deals posted on here in the last few days and save me having to go out any more than I need to in this freezing weather

Wow, Reminds of the good old days when i used to collect tools like when it used to take a week to save up for a snap on tool.
Carbs? How quaint. Ordered, although all my bikes are FI

Because it's so patchy, I can't check the whole system. If people are really after one they'd have a look anyway, I check expired deals if I'm interested in buying anyway.

but would you want an unsheathed point roaming free in your leggings? i've poked myself in the thigh plenty of times over the years with loose bits in my pocket
the resQme (or this cheap variant banggood.com/Min…tml) has a hidden pin for smashing windows and also a seatbelt cutter (which i've found to be not very effective in real life especially compared to a leatherman's knife or a real knife)

they are usually stored in the handle of the glass master or we have the spring ones that you stretch and let go
