Another simple theme for this weeks CS - tools. Everyone has some sort of tools laying around, so this should be easy to have some fun with.

New tools or old, common or unique, hand tools or powered, large or small, simple chunks of steel or complicated electronical doodads. Environmental shots, close-ups, or even tool portraits. Post 'em up.

Standard CS rules apply, theme runs until midnight Wed 11 Jan 2017.

Some of my indispensable tools for digital photography. More non-photography tools to come. Nice topic BTW:).

Sorry the lens pen is upside down. Too lazy to correct it!
I have those same two in the second photo. :D

And something close to my heart (well, stomach, actually!). Apparently used by the gauchos in Argentina, my daughter brought this carving set back for me from her trip to Argentina a few years' back. It carves roast beef like a hot knife through butter... Hmmm!

Quality knives that do what they are supposed to do, well, are a good thing.

Good theme, Gordon!
I often wonder how many variations of the hammer exist. Mine range in size from a tiny tack hammer to a 14 lb sledge, and I'm constantly finding new uses for the "special" ones.

Wouldn't be surprised if there are hundreds Bob - so simple, yet easily specialized.

Handy tool. Not high quality, but inexpensive enough to be easily replaced and it does what I need it to do for now.

Interesting theme and nice example. My dad used to say there was nothing wrong with me that a hammer couldn't fix. :)
