Just don't grab the wrong one, by mistake.
My dad's got one of those six foot wrenches....he's in the sewage/pump business.
I've had to climb down into a pit and hook up a cable to the thing so dad could winch on it with the boom to get the wrench moving....nothing like being covered in turds and fryed cockroaches....(shudders)
but I've seen my dad make any kinda tool he needed, bend a wrench with a torch in a heartbeat. I guess that is why I don't even think and just cobble soemthing to gether ewith what I have on hand.
I did buy a PEX crimper once a few years ago...haven used it since-but I got the whole SET!

I had guys in my old shop do that and then turned in the modified tool to the SNAP on truck for replacement. I don't recall the Snap On guy having an issue with it.
Ordered the tool, got it in, and 5 minutes after opening the box it had served it's purpose. It is essentially a set of snap ring pliers used to stretch a retaining spring. I have a buddy that fixes all his own stuff by researching, buying tools, and then getting it done. You would think he was a specialty mechanic with all his equipment, but that is what 20 years of DIY gets ya...but alas it was just an off size that was needed and time (the wife) dictated it done sooner than later. I'll add it to my collection, who knows.... (I tried the spouse and child combinations for assistance and it wasn't pretty)

I have a number of single-function, rarely used specialty tools. The latest ones are a camshaft sprocket holding tool for Ford Triton V8s with variable valve timing, as well as a 16x1.5 compression gauge adapter for the spark plug hole. I don't know when I'll get my next one, but I'll be ready. Surprisingly, Amazon is a good source for these tools, much cheaper and faster than the tool trucks, who wouldn't have had them anyway.
I have at least $200 in tools specifically for my boat outdrive. Maybe more.
