once vs ones :

once or ones

“Once” always has to do with time and answers the questions, “how many times?” or “when?” For instance: “I only played handball once.” “Once I got my boot off, I saw my sock had a hole in it.”In contrast, “ones” have to do with things. In your tool collection, the ones you should keep handy are the ones you use most.
