Borrowed shamelessly from BritishCanadian, the idea of this thread is to post things you've bought or received that is awesome in some way or that doesn't suck.

For me my entry is this:

Socks?! I know what you're thinking, socks are a dime a dozen. Well these Nike Dri-Fit socks are the best socks I've ever bought. Sure the price (16 bucks for a 3 pack) is indeed steep, but not only do they fit well, they solve a issue I had at work. I have to wear a very ugly pair of slip resistant clogs that aren't breathable in any way. Combine that with working in warm conditions and the toes of my old socks were always wet...really gross.

Not the case with these at all. They also make it easier to get on the shitty clogs as well. Win-Win.

Socks aren't trivial for me. I spend an extortionate amount of money on one particular type of Jeff Banks dress socks. These to be exact:

I don't wear sports socks, nor white ones, but then, I always wear shoes or boots.

(Sorry for derailment into sock thread, but if you need a good dress sock, I recommend the above).

Why do you think socks come in packs of 6?

Leatherman tools. Extremely well-made, reliable, and they have a great 25-year replacement warranty. I rarely go anywhere without my Wave.

both have worked well, I have a hitachi angle grinder that's not bad as well. I bought a bosch detail sander that's handy because they make 40G paper for it, useful for stuff like skirting boards that you can't use 1/3 sheet paper on

+1, I have a Leatherman multi-tool from probably 10 years ago, still looks brand new.

I am probably going to buy a MUT just because I want another one and it looks cool.

+1 on the socks. I've been using these for the past few months and they are awesome for keeping dry, non-smelly and comfy.

another +1 for Leatherman, have a Skeletool CX since I didn't need a huge variety but it's been solid and dependable for the last 5 years and hasn't come loose or even scratched a bit

Are you able to reset codes?

It has that In the menu but I haven't tried yet. I may if the transmission sensor install doesn't clear it on its own like its supposed to.
