Default What would you get...

Just wondering what other folks would buy if they had £25 (About $32 give or take) to spend. Looking for some workshop ideas, not necessarily related to routing.

Have you got a vernier gauge?
I have one made of some high impact plastic with a dial gauge. Absolutely indispensable item, from measuring drill diameters to small close tolerance bits of wood.
Dont go battery digital though. te battery will be dead everytime you pick it up.

I do actually already have a digital one that I've had for a few years now. I am considering getting a newer, better one as the one I have was cheap (Although proved to be surprisingly accurate for the money) and over the years has drifted by .02mm. It's never really been much of an issue as I'm aware of it, it just bugs my OCD side I've never had a problem with batteries as I use it that often, also I buy them in bulk which works out at pennies each

I've been looking at everything fro pocket hole jigs to clamps to bobbin sander sets for my drill press...I think I've just given myself too much to consider...too many choices!!

Shaped sanding blocks (Rockler/Amazon). Rounded type shown in pix, also get wedge version.

Scraper set and holder (Amazon) see two pix.

Japanese Dozuki saw (Amazon) See pix.

Wixey digital angle finder (Amaon) See pix.

Combination square, 6 inch, see pix.

Disposable glue up brushes, 100 (Amazon/HF) plus bottle of brown, yellow or white glue.

Woodworking book, (Amazon) such as the Joint Book (see pix).

Gift cards to store with stuff appropriate to the person, Amazon gift cards for example.

Movie theater gift cards, packed in small box filled with [U]unbuttered[/U ] popcorn.

A DVD of a season of woodworking show from TV. Search YouTube, buy on Amazon or from vendor.

As always, the pix are out of order. Wish they'd fix it so that didn't happen, perhaps resort according to time of insertion? or by number in the filename so we could number 001,002, 003, for example. I assume this whole site is really a huge database, so this kind of sort should be fairly easy to do with a query in a field property.

Titebond II, broom, dust pan, coffee, creamer, donuts. Oh yes, 1", 1.5", 2", wood chisels. That pretty well covers it for now.

Yes, yes. Wide wood chisels. My largest is just 3/4. This would be better than new slippers by a long shot.

If it's not a Ticonderoga, it's not a pencil.

Not fair to ask questions like this, unless you list what you would buy first.
