You have $500 to spend on tools.

stainless steel pipe, various diameters?
threaded rod, rebar and 2 dozen shelf brackets?
cool part for a classic car that you never owned?
52 peanut butter jars full of nails and screws?
18 different rulers?
three broken power tools  and an electric heater for motor parts?
a radio controlled helicopter, broken?
an empty beer keg?
