No, I do. (It's a bit hard to shave bits of your own head evenly.)

Before: I don't have the right tools available to make some cool Instructables. After: DIY Network is giving away $15,000 to spend on tools!

If we don't make our traffic numbers for the year, I'm demanding some sort of bailout. It's the new capitalism.

Thanks for putting this little contest on! That tape measure looks like a Komelon SS Gripper. I bought one as a gift a while back and it seemed like a nice one.
