I chuckled when I heard a misplaced Aussie call a circular saw a Skilful Saw.

When framing, I used both rough and fine adjusting tools. The rough was a 5# sledge and the fine was a 2# maul.

"Lop it and leave it" meant cut a board and leave the mark.

Headache!! (from working around linemen) was hollered if something was dropped from above(ladder/on a roof/atop walls/etc.)

Thumb smasher was, of course, a hammer. There were two types, fine and heavy. Fine was a smooth faced trim hammer and heavy was a waffle faced framing hammer. The heavy hurt more and caused more damage.

My dad said a tool box only needed two tools, a hammer and a bigger hammer.

My brother says his toolbox only has two tools. A phone book and a check book. Cool

My dad always called a crowbar a "rooster bar", almost sixty years later and I do the same thing...
