Our Mission

Our mission at ToolTally is to encourage self-reliance, problem-solving and working with your hands to complete physical projects. In today’s world, we humans live in a constant dopamine rush. The endless scrolling through social media. The hours of gaming.

We’ve lost our sanity to the bits and bytes of the internet.

There is something irreplaceable about a quiet night in the shop. Carefully polishing a burl to get the perfect shine. Topping off your whiskey and leaning back to listen to some good tunes while you read a woodworking magazine.

It’s refreshing.

The other day I needed to swap the alternator in a Honda Pilot. Apparently, there is only one way that those alternators can thread through all of the hose and belts.

It took me two hours of trying every angle before I figured it out. Yeah, I should have looked it up on Youtube. But, anymore, I like to give my brain room to work to see if can still solve problems on my own.

Real-world puzzles.

As we review tools and share how-to’s, hopefully, they will help you on your journey.

Here’s to getting back to simpler times and quieter minds.

Zachary Drumm graduated in 2020 with a degree in History. Throughout High School and college he worked on several construction crews and would buy used vehicles on Craigslist that he could fix up and sell.

This enterprising behavior greatly expanded his knowledge of tools and repair techniques. Introduced to the idea of blogging and podcasting by a friend, Zachary Drumm launched Tool Tally in the fall of 2018.

His goal with Tool Tally is to build its encyclopedia of helpful articles and eventually expand into a YouTube channel with weekly shows with the profits generated by the blog.
