Varies between 'gloating' and 'despairing'
The gloating bit comes from remembering the time when the only modifying tool I could afford was a Stanley knife, to having (almost) every machine tool I've ever wanted.
The despair comes from realising I lack the skill to do anything useful with them and the workshop is too overcrowded for comfort, anyway.

Just Modging About or Furgling Around, often while like others I try to remember why came to the workshop and should I have a revelation then trying to remember where the required tool/item is. The latter rarely happens and if it does then reason for looking has vanished into the unfathomable mists of forgetfulness in the remote corners of my brain.

Pottering or tinkering mainly, sometimes tidying up, occasionally playing and every now and then actually 'working' which usually means fixing something that is needed for other 'essential' household or yard chores.
