supertool300c "Tips My Dad Says" (with a SuperTool 300 Giveaway from Leatherman!)My dad’s advice about tools:

Good tools can last a lifetime — but if it’s easier to abuse a tool than to go out and get another, go for it.

Whenever I’d help my father, I’d be tentative when I didn’t know what I was doing, but my father told me not to worry about messing up a project. Messing up is one of the best ways to learn, he told me, and that we can’t learn well if we aren’t willing to take risks and make lots of mistakes.
