It seems like we often get caught up in the need for having the right tool for the job, and that we sometimes forget that many problems can be solved with what you have on hand. Take for instance Tool Mongers recent post of a tip for extracting a screw. I think it is a good reminder of the days of simplicity and making things work. While it is nice (and yes, cheaper depending on how you pay for labor) to just buy what ever you need for any given project - it doesn't fill me with the same sense of accomplishment that making something cool happen with the odds and ends that accululate in most scene shops.
