I spec out and purchase most of the tooling and equipment at work. If a power plant has an emergency shutdown we have to be able to respond quickly. Because what we use has to work, I tend to buy premium tooling and supplies. It’s a pretty simple chore and I have no trouble.
Fast forward to personal life. I’m standing in the air tool aisle in Northern Tool. I ask for one thing this Christmas, an air impact wrench for faster removal of lug nuts on the wheels of the cars when I am servicing them. I didn’t get it because the wife didn’t know which one to get. Big A brought her car over for me to change the oil and asked me to rotate her tires while I was at it. I thought cool, I'll go get the Air Wrench myself. Well, they have 12 models priced from $39.95 to $299.95, 230 ft lbs to 600 ft lbs of torque and 4 different brands.
Air Impact Wrench. Yea I know y'all are drooling too!!
I read info and price tags for about 45 minutes and after being overcome by Option Paralysis I Simply walked out empty handed.
Do you have problems making purchase decisions?
