What about chaulking gun: used to apply very sticky stuff to work clothes, hands, hair, cups of tea, soles of shoes (and produce coloured footprints on clean decks), handles of tools, plus many more unblemished items.

I think your list could run and run.

You forgot electrical tape to hold skin together after puncturing with some of the afore mentioned sharp objects and one or two of the blunt ones, makes ideal bandage

As a retired professional boatbuilder and shipwright I can add the amateur's disc sander attachment for the 1/4" power drill to the list. It is most often used to render the exterior of a wooden hull free of paint and full of deep grinning swirls. This necessitates the attention of a Professional, ME, to make the hull once again smooth, fair, and ready to accept paint. The disc sander in the hands of miserly amateurs has, over the years, increased my personal worth by tens of thousands of dollars. Had they simply paid me my asking price and gone to a movie, by the time they returned the paint would have been gone from the hull, and all irregularities rendered fair. All at 1/3 the cost of making their mistakes disappear. So the amateur's disc sander is one of the most profitable tools in the professional's kit.

Painfully funny, because I have done too many of those things. Tried to explain to my wife why I was snorting ang giggling, but as she has never set her dainty foot in a workshop she just didn't get it.

After an exciting but never repeated event when my trigger finger set my electric drill off unexpectedly may I suggest the following:

Chuck: Attachment for electric tools used for launching a specially designed projectile (see Chuck Key) across the workshop at light speed.

Chuck Key: Specially designed projectile for use in Chuck (see above) Capable of travel at light speed. Also has "cloaking" properties, allowing it to become invisible when placed on the workbench near the drill

Great reading!

Big pry bars can also be very good for firing rusty nail heads at high speed into your face.
