As much as most of those end/beginning-of-the-year/decade lists annoy me, I did catch myself reflecting a bit and wondering about the first tool I purchased with my own hard-earned cash when I was but a wee lad. I think it was an Xcelite® Series 99® set similar to the one pictured above. I still have the original handle, drivers, and case, but mine does not have the clear plastic. Everything still works well, although some of the drivers are getting a little beat up. Over the years I have added additional drivers and a ratcheting T-handle.

And so began my happy journey down the slippery slope of Toolmongerdom. What was the first tool you purchased? Do you still have it?
