It never fails to amaze me how many extras of the same tool Greg keeps in his shop. To be fair, I'm the same way about scissors, pens, and notepads. I don't want to go to any room and not have those things nearby.
The only difference between me and Greg is that I can usually find the tool I'm looking for. He faithfully has to hunt for a particular wrench for at least an hour before he can begin work. And this from a guy who has multiples of each kind of wrench--adjustable, air powered, metric, and SAE (standard).
There are logical reasons to have more than one of the same tool. For instance, we keep a pair of Channel Lock pliers (adjustable wrench) in every vehicle including the golf cart and the utility vehicle. There's also one in my personal tool bag and my mini workshop next to the garage.
You know as well as I do whatever tool you're looking for is usually in the last place you used it, so why not keep two (or more)?
But maybe not everyone thinks this way. We're DIY kind of people, but tools aren't the only things to duplicate. If you're a cook, you have more than one pair of tongs. If you craft, you have more than one pair of scissors.
If I lived in a tiny house, I could probably do with a lot less. When you live on six acres you really don't want to traipse back and forth looking for this tool or that.
How is it at your house? Do you keep multiples of the same kind of tool?
Off topic, but if you haven't seen it already, I want to recommend A Million Miles Away. If you like real life stories about space, this is the movie for you. It stars Michael Peña. It's the true life story of a Mexican migrant worker who becomes an astronaut.
It was so inspiring. It's currently on Amazon, free for Prime members.
