Most of us have one or more hobbies that we do in our spare time. Whether it’s fishing, panning for gold, woodworking, working on antique cars, hunting, or looking for lost coins with a metal detector, we find them fun to do. And they have the added benefit of giving us a chance to do something different from our “regular” jobs. Our “break from reality” so to speak! Most of these hobbies require us to use one or more tools in order to perform them. To assist the hobbyist in selecting these tools, we offer an evaluation and in some cases a recommendation of the various tools that are available to the hobbyist.
