Settle down. There's no point in getting yourself all worked up answering a different question than the one I asked. I can't justify spending half an hour repairing a tool I don't need. That's why I asked the question I did. If a tool has given me good service---and I know how not to abuse tools, but thanks for suggesting it---I hate to just throw it away if it breaks. So I'll spend a few minutes fixing it and it can be a last resort tool, or a loaner I don't expect to get back.
Did you notice, I didn't tell you how you should use your tools?
