    Awesome for making panini's, and other grilled burrito type things. Shitty for cooking meat, but adds a little fun over the regular sandwich for lunch.

    I've tried every cheap pen in existence and it can't be overstated how superior the Sanford uniball Onyx is to all other challengers. $2 and the world is yours.

    Chemex + grinder + kettle. Grinder and kettle are from Hario. The kettle pours with more control than any others out there - it's the standard at better coffee shops. This setup makes the best home coffee I've been able to do (and much better than most coffee shops) and costs around $100 total.

    Waiter-style bottle opener.

    Great, if you could find one properly engineered and crafted.

    Looks like something that would be highly useful if one had, say, a sailboat with lots of topside teak, or if one wanted to do his own work on the bottom job (no edmorel).

    That's what kids are for. [​IMG] A RO sander Like a Festool Rotex has more general applicability, but when you want to remove a lot of material fast- this is the baby.
