As Jeff and I were installing an aluminum drive shaft that I just had balanced, back in my 2001 GT, I remembered an old rule I used to always live by, and most all mechanics do too, but no one ever really talks about: It's bad luck to put your tools away before you test the car, because if you do, then you will almost always need to dig them back out again. But if you leave them out, more times than not, you won't need them again. So what do you think, am I wrong? Or do you live by this secret code too?

I am extremely OCD so I clean and put the tools away as I am done with them so there isn't a mess as I am going along.  I seem to have more issues when I am in a rush and tools are left everywhere, lol.

I put tools away after I use them. I hardly leave them out until the end of a job.

I tend to leave my tools out more often than not until I complete my task.

Absolutely they get put away.  I have too much invested in them to leave them lying around.  My tool box is also meticulously organized so I know where everything I need is!

It drives me nuts when there is chaos in my work area.
