Guinness is kinda unique. It's a taste of its own. It's smooth and leaves no bitter after taste.  I like it.


However stouts come in all sorts of flavors (pun intended) if your into strong you can get a bourbon barrel stout. Or setter ones like milk stout (more popular)

I like a good stout. I'm a darker beer kinda guy for the most part. But I've had plenty that aren't dark that I really like as well.

Another tool I don't pass up is those cheap US made back saws with the black plastic handles, made by great neck I think.
They're only around $10 new but I can't count how many I've found gently used for just a few dollars , same goes for the yellow plastic miter boxes that go with them.
They make great beaters, I don't have to worry about messing up my good saws or cutting into the plastic miter box.

I'm not picky when it comes to American made 1/4 ratchets either,  even if so many roundheads are extremely similar.
As long as it's in decent enough condition and the price is right I'll buy it, I don't really care if I already have one either.

Fiberglass handled Plumb carpenters hammers are the one item that comes home with me no matter the price. The older 70s era Williams tools get my attention as well.
The 70's-80's cooper era black and red handles ?
These here
I've always thought those were classy looking even if they are fiberglass handles which I don't personally like.

I also greatly prefer rip claws over curved claws, but if it's not something I actually need I will buy a hammer just because it's good looking.

Now that I am more awake, realize I didnt mention Bonney, Williams, or Kraeuter.  Kraeuter wrenches as well as pliers cutters.
 Got my set of Proto yellow handled screwdrivers, as well as the set of ACE screwdrivers.  Perfect handle tools, mainly screwdrivers, getting a nice usable set.    Always look for Diamalloy pliers, and Wizard tools (Western Auto].  The list goes on, if it looks older it gets pickedup and examined.  Find I am getting pickier as to condition.  Hand saws, usually Disston, or any older saws with a nice etch.  Yeah I'm in trouble.

Knipex, Channel lock, Nupla, Snap on, any hammer that feels good, PowrKraft, Plomb

My list isn't fair because most of what I buy is for resale but  certainly have a thing for hammers, PowrKraft and Knipex

I've been looking at doing that with an Onan Generator I have. Lots of good ideals on the web about ignition swaps
