Well I got lucky. I was in Presque Isle, Maine yesterday and stopped into Staples and found my triangle on the rack.  8) The old one I had for 25 years. Pays to be brand loyal, they stick around. ;)

I operate on the principle that if I have two or three of something I may be able to find one when I need it.  Sometimes I need four.  :D

I don't know about the rest of you guys but seems I spend most of my time looking for things rather than doing work. If I get really desperate I'll have Patty come out and find it for me.  :D

Well yeah, I have two now. One is a 90,45,45, and the replacement one was for the 90,60,30.

I must have some how dropped in on the floor and shoveled it into the stove for fire starter.  ::)

Nah, I think it because we women actually open our eyes, and lift stuff up and look under things, around things, above things..... :D     Just kidding you guys, I can't ever find anything either up in my sewing room. Usually it takes Norm to find all the pins and needles I have dropped. Somehow they end up in the bottom of his foot.  :o

My wife (God love her, as they say down here- so do I, actually) has been on a clean-up the house and make it a fit place to live kick lately, which means all of my carefully stacked plans, notes, magazines and books are now carefully stacked somewhere I can't find them.  Course, it does take a load off, now that I don't have to worry about doing the work tied up in the plans...  :D

She did the same thing last year with my collection of bottles and jugs of various plant and pest poisons- took them all off to various parts of various barns, and now I can't find my sprayer or any of the spray stuff.  Invasives are thriving and almost everyday I think to myself, time to do something about that, but then I realize that would mean going out to buy all the stuff I know is around here somewhere.  You might say, just ask the wife where it is; her reply would be, in the barn... which one?  Where at in the barn?  In what box, tub or trailer? with or without the labels and instructions?....

She's a firm believer in "use it or lose it" as far as my stuff goes... her stuff?  That's a different question, cause she doesn't have "stuff," just treasures and keepsakes and gifts for the next grandkid's birthday and some of next year's Christmas presents and books that she's reading or read.  Makes life interesting as long as you remember what's important, and it ain't stuff.   :)

I set down my lighted magnified glasses 2 weeks ago. Still haven't found them.

Found them yesterday finally. All I had to do was go buy another set and they showed up ::)

For many years I had a workshop with tools scattered around, in such chaos that often I couldn't find the one I needed.  Several years ago I inherited my father's workshop full of tools, so then I had some duplicates, and the problem only got worse.  My usual work habit, often, was to buy a new hammer, bow saw, lopper, utility knife, screw driver or whatever, when after a serious search I couldn't find the tool I knew I had "somewhere." 

My wife has a friend whose job is to help people who are not organized to organize their house or garage or workshop.  She hired this woman and we went to work on my shop.  For the first time in my life (I'm now 71) my shop is truly organized, and when I need a particular tool, I can find it quickly, so jobs get done much more easily.  The embarrassing thing is that now I have 8 bow saws, 12 hammers, 13 utility knives, etc., etc., for everyone to see.  I haven't had to buy any tools for quite a while.
This woman has changed my life -- at least the home handyman part of it.  She seems to have many happy customers, but she says she declines to work for hoarders -- people who are pack rats, and can't throw anything away.

I have to be one of the most unorganized persons on the globe .This is one reason I have just tons of junk ,more tools than you can shake a stick at .It's certainly nothing to be proud of just a habit that seems to be impossible to break . The only reason I can find anything is because I have so many duplicates .

Every so many years it all gets somewhat orderly but unfortunately doesn't stay that way very long .

David, Does she travel I could sure use someone like that!

Another problem I have is..... [well one of many but that's a whole different thread] is that I take tools and equipment to Tenn and leave them or vise versa then spend time looking for it at the other place. Somehow all 3 of my 4ft levels are in Tenn and I need one here.

I had one of those, and my son was using it to build his house. Had to keep all his tools in his SUV as couldn't leave the good ones at the construction site. One night, his SUV was broken into and all our tools were stolen.

Yeah sure but it would cost you more to drive up here than it would to buy a new level .That is of course unless you're one of those fortunate  few with a oil well in the back yard .

Oh then you have to built a vacuum still ,filtration, permits ,EPA bs ,income tax,state tax ,sales tax ,carpet tacks and 10 thousand other nonsensical things  just so you can use the oil .Maybe not a good plan .There's always flea bay . ;D
