Is it possible to have too many tools?

I go to local auctions sometimes and see hand and power tools going for a fraction of their cost. Is it cost-effective to get these? Granted, we have no way of telling the operating condition of them, but a DeWalt chopsaw for 25 bucks is hard to resist.

Totally worth it. I buy almost all my tools second hand, as long as they are in good working order.

For beginners, I recommend starting cheap and working your way up to nicer tools when you're ready and know what features you like. I always have an eye on the classifieds for tools, and sometimes even buy tools I don't need!
