Yes, very well said - it's the tool (or "instrument" as you said, but same point). There is a saying, though - "to someone with a hammer, every problem looks like a nail." Something to think about. Our choice of solution may depend on our tool or instrument, as much as our choice of tool might depend on the problem.

I'm sorry to hear that hammers are dying. I'll have to go out and buy another drill now.
