so seeing if yall have any advice. My wedding is coming up and the registry is all filled with kitchen and bathroom shit. All stuff for the mrs.
I've got an OK start to a tool inventory, but its not fair. I've bought and paid for all my tools myself, but the Mrs. gets all her kitchen and bathroom and dishes gifted?
Any recommendations for tools I can ask for on a registry?
I've already got:
circular saw (dewalt cordless)
levels, stud finders
hammer drill, power drill (dewalt cordless)
air compressor and some Harbor Freight air tools
basic socket set
full sets of drill bits
torx battery screwdriver for everyday shit
cheap ryobi table saw
oh yea, I do. I've got a nice collection of cast iron and manly shit like that, and a real nice set of knives. (I actually picked up 5 more cast iron skillets yesterday off craigslist for $50).
I'm saying that she gets all this nice fancy shit like crystal wine glasses, napkin rings, china. What manly things could I add to the registry without it looking weird?
yea, i actually picked up one of these at an estate sale for a couple bucks. It's missing a few pieces (well maybe a lot) but its mostly there.
I personally buy tools as I need them, or buy random cheap stuff that in the event of it getting extensive use I will upgrade to an established manufacturer. You're better off letting the lady have it all unless you want to state "gift cards or cash in lieu of stuff."
Most of the things I can think of wouldn't be in the scope of a gift, like an air compressor or shopvac.
An angle grinder is definitely nice.
I have a similar problem, hopefully you guys can help me. My sister and her husband got a new house about a week ago. I got them a small but sufficient toolset as a housewarming gift.
I got called in today to flick a breaker switch. I tried explaining to this 'man' that the things inside the panel are switches. Instead he wanted to know if I could figure out what was wrong with one of their sinks. Any decent books or resources on general ... I don't even know what topic this would fall into. Just something so either one of them can solve simple shit that will pop up from time to time. The more pictures the better, I reckon.
Just stop going over and tell him to hire someone. If he can't flip a breaker of even listen to you explain it, he's not interested in learning or figuring it out.
You know this is true.
How a about a reciprocating saw?
The only other things that come to mind seem to not be in what I'm assuming your interests are, like a nice soldering iron, a decent multimeter and shit like that.
On second thought, a multimeter wouldn't be a bad thing. Even if you're not into the field they're handy to keep about.
Also, gooseneck lamps. If you can get them in a nice, daylight color temperature they're amazing.
He will change his tune once he can't get work done by a poor student for the price of lunch. My conflict is with several misguiding how to's out there. But I suppose there's no way around it. Nevermind then.
That is *her* getting stuff, that's a married couple getting things.
I've seen plenty of people putting hand tools on a registry before. Power tools will be ignored though.
Also please stop with this constant need to prove your masculinity by being "manly".
Who gets gifts anymore? Last two weddings I went to each couple literally got one actual gift from a grandma. Everyone else just gave them cash and a card. It's easier and more convenient for everyone all around.
Wedding registries are a fucking joke. It's like being the little shithead kid that demands certain things for christmas and throws a fit when his/her list isn't fulfilled.
Then again, getting married is a joke, too.
Sounds like you need some manly stuff. How about:
*Garden sheers to trim your mountain man beard
*overalls for all the manly outside work you do
*giant glass mug for your fosters brand beer
*carborator overhaul kit
*direct TV sports package
Yeah no faggot. I suggest you call off your wedding because you're too immature to understand what a wedding actually means. A wedding is not an extra birthday where all your friends give you free shit. Every wedding I have seen people pull this shit fails within about two years.
Wedding gifts are only items of sentimental value and life long value. A fucking saw that will fall apart in 5 years is not an item to buy someone for a wedding gift. You buy one nice thing.
>a fine piece of silverware
>quality cooking implements
Shit you actually need for a house and special occaisions. This way, every time you have a big event like a wedding anniversary or a birthday or a graduation or relatives come to visit or you go to a christening or wedding or funeral or some shit, those things remind you of your wedding vows and the friends who supported you. Gibsmedat, and how you talk about your fiance just shows that you hold nothing sacred and still consider each other as having separate shit.
>sharpening mower blade with angle grinder
Oh god, that makes me mad on so many fucking levels. I bet you leave it on the fucking mower, too.
Do the world a favor and don't pull the spark plug next time.
Its a wedding its about the woman get over it. Anything you do to take away from her moment you will hear about all the the way upto and through the divorce. Good luck annon I hope you break the trend and habe a long happy marriage with happy children.
You're gonna fuck it up freehand with an angle grinder, you want to use a bench grinder. Then you've got to balance it, since having an unbalanced chunk of metal spinning at 500rpm is no bueno.
People really make a list of all the shit they want and then after inviting people to their wedding expect them to arrive with tools they want and shit?
This is disgusting entitlement.
I would be embarrassed to put things like tools on that.
I think baby registries make sense, like if your friend or family member is having a kid everyone kinda pitches in and gets some initial things for the baby. To me buying some stuff for a baby is fine, but buying some man child a toolset because he is getting married is retarded.
if you feel entitled to the things on your registry then your doing it wrong. the original idea was that you made a giant list of shit you'd like to have, then your guests could get stuff off of it and it would prevent you ending up with like 20 crockpots or something like that... don't make a gift registry of only expensive shit.. don't expect to get everything on it, don't think your guests are obligated to get you anything...
jesus it's just another weird part of marriage.
and for some marriage can be an economical decision... most of us call those people crazy...
nice. there was a mikasa set I came across a long time ago that went from a square base with the edges in a screw pattern, up to a round rim... I still wish I'd bought it, looked classy as hell...
..captcha says pick pizza... one of the pizza's has a cock hole in it... time for less porn...

>having a huge ceremony
Just put on a polo and a pair of slacks and go down to the county office. You're not expected to pay 30 grand on a wedding, and neither are the guests expected to pay $300 for your shitty wedding registry.
enjoy your alimony you greedy fuck
you definitely deserve to be fucked over by your wife
OP, in your pic, all the items in the top pics are
an order of magnitude less expensive than all the items in the bottom pic. Plus, you already have shit. IMHO you should put a fleshlight on the registry.
