I've still got my feeler gauges and know exactly where to find 'em.
After all, who knows when you might need them. When I look for the sets of points, I'll check of the feeler gauge too.

Yup me too (all three sets). I've still got a timing strobe light too although it's been buried, in it's original box, at the bottom of my wooden tool chest for many years now!
Three sets, is that to allow for tool failure?

Haven’t seen a set of points for a while, that’s how I know where the feelers are.

Perhaps sample variation is a thing on feeler gauges.

I do and I also know how to de-gauss multi-track tape recorder heads after working as a recording studio engineer for a number of years.

On the subject of "Who knows how to .... " who remembers how to change and gap a set of points on a distributor?
ME ME ME. In the early 70's I managed a Texaco gas station. Even on a car with a dual ignition system and/or multiple carburetors.

Nope, it's just that I have a set in my big rolling toolbox, a set in my small mechanical toolbox and a set in my electrical toolbox. I like to keep things organized and easy to grab when I need specific tools for specific jobs. In addition to the above I have a tool belt full of screwdrivers and other stuff, a plastic tote that contains my battery powered drill and all it's drills/screwdriver bits, a wooden tool chest (built by me almost 40 years ago) that contains most of my woodworking hand tools (plus the strobe light mentioned in another post) and a wall full of small tools in my hobby room (on a peg board system) where I work on the family collection of RC vehicles (one mine, one my wife's and one my daughter's).

Just like lenses you can never have too many tools!

The Highland version of that phrase is... "Your only as only as old as the women you feel", so that's me knackered as I'm a toy boy.

I thought that was W.C. Fields

The guy Mae West said "Is that a pistol in your pocket or are you happy to see me?" to.

And who's tombstone reads "I'd rather be here than in Philadelphia."
Groucho Marx certainly used that expression, but I didn't realise he was a Scot.

Does that count for a Scottish passport? I think not.

Most of you are younger than I. Note that I am so old I use correct grammar.

Does that mean "old enough and set in your ways enough to oppose the evolution of the language?"
